5 STAR REVIEW
I honestly wish I could give it more.
Thank you so much to Harper Collins and Gena Showalter for providing me with a free copy of this book for my honest review.
I’m a huge fan of fairytale retellings and this one did not disappoint at all! I loved Gena Showalter’s writing for years and this book was great!
The female main character of the book Everly has been raised in the mortal world by her mom and stepdad with her twin sister Hartly. She has no idea that she’s a fairy princess and that she possesses strong powers, powers that could get her killed. Her world gets turned upside down when they both find out they have powers and are taken to the world of Enchantia. Everything that happens to Everly is done because of what the fairytale or prophecy says is going to happen and everyone must figure out if she is the Evil Queen or not.
This story was kind of hard for me to get into at first but once I started I couldn’t put it down (can you say binge reading). I loved all of the characters but I especially loved Everly. She was such a sweet girl and only wanted the best for everyone and had a hell of a time when she had to be mean or kill someone. I loved the background thinking she had in some very intense parts and I loved how snarky and sarcastic she was, kind of reminded me of myself. And don’t even get me started on the romance between her and the Prince, holy swoon.
The fight scenes in this book were also incredible. Gena goes into so much detail in her books that you honestly feel like you’re right there with them and I honestly flinched at a couple of the spots when someone got hit, it seemed that real to me. I think that was one of the best parts about this fantasy novel was how descriptive and creative everything, it sucks you into the story and doesn’t want to let you go.
