Whenever I’m in the mood for a feel-good book that leaves me feeling happy, I turn to Jessica Day George. She is rapidly becoming one of my all-time favorite authors. She has a simplistic writing style that gives her books the “fairy tale” feeling that I so enjoy, and I love the sweetness of her stories. Having devoured her Dragon Slippers series, I was especially happy to find the first two books in this series available as a Kindle online deal.
The story did not disappoint. I always love new twists on old fairy tales, and this one was just as charming as her other books have been. I’ll confess that it took me about a chapter or so to really become immersed in the storyline, but once I got past that I was thoroughly delighted throughout the rest of it.
Because I always tend to love the villain, I really enjoyed the King Under Stone and his sons, but I also enjoyed seeing part of the story from Galen’s point of view. All in all, I look forward to the sequel.
