BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

I am going to say it.

Disney you need to read this little gem.

I can sooooo see this book loved, nurtured and published by Disney.... even a movie.

Oh , yeah! I went there!!

I mean no offence to the cover designer, but the cover does not give any....any..... inclination to the story within. I see a more fairy tale cover.

This is a most refreshing modern fairy tale with all the right ingredients. Cinderella, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, I love you all, you are classics, many versions have made it to the big screen.  I love what Kristy has done with her little story, it is this quiet little achiever, I think it's time to stand aside and let another modern day fairy tale play out.

This little gem comes complete with a Wicked Queen, her minion, a Prince, a girl ( Kiera) ,a vortex ( cause you have to have a vortex) , a pit of restless souls lost in nightmares, rings, some song ( as you need that) , hot boys....a goth boy and a dog named Terrence to name some. ( well, if I told you everything, no point reading it)

The tale told is different and original.

I was pulled in from the beginning. Now I don’t want to spoil it, but what Kristy did with the Prince, I loved!! Nice and fresh and fun .

Kiera and Maddy aka speedy and weedy, we aren’t sure who is who , cause nobody wants to be weedy...hehe...like to go blading.  Daz, he’s the goth boy, and Joe, he’s crushing on Kiera , they make up the happy foursome of friends.

Kiera lives with her Uncle Tom and attends school , her life was fairly normal, but then things change....... enter Zakk.

I love how much fun Kristy has with her writing. This book is only 75pages long , but you feel like you have been inside her story, longer.

I love the names of her characters and how they leap off the page at you. The teacher named Miss Ing......get it...missing....ha!! I missed it first time, lol!!

The Wicked Queen is an absolute hoot! I had this voice in my head, she spoke to me when I was reading her dialogue. I loved her! Kristy’s take on a Wicked Queen was fresh and made me laugh with her actions.

I think chapter one should possibly have been a prologue, but who cares, I loved this book. It was fresh and fun and entertaining. I could so see Selena Gomez or one of the other young chickens in Hollywood breathing life into Kiera.

Get ready to step inside a fairy tale with a difference, will there be that Happy Ever After at the end of this book, or will Kiera be on a quest to fight for her HEA? I hope so as I had such fun reading this one.
Well done Kristy:)
