I was a bit torn about this book. I liked the story idea and the first book left me wanting to know more. This one, however, felt more like filler so there could be more books in the series. The lengthy tangent involving the ogre was weird and didn't relate to any fairy tale I know. I nearly gave up on this book. It didn't get good until the end. Now I'm wary about reading the next one, in case it doesn't get to the point of the story either.
I loved the second book of this series. I liked that Chanda Hahn made the tone of this book a little darker than the first. The book was not as "happy ever after" as the first. The change was refreshing and different. Can't wait to read the next book!
The story continues.....and I'm a sucker for revisiting the tales of my childhood that enabled me to survive with my head in the clouds!! This author makes you really remember your Fairy Tales!! She brings them back to life with a relevance to all High School readers!! I'm much older than that, but I found them entertaining, easy to read and I liked the new angle to old familiar stories! I will be on the lookout for other titles in the series as and when they are digitally published!! I might even be tempted to try other books by this author! Go, Amazon! Go! Well done for introducing me yet again to another new author by means of a free first book in a series!!
I really enjoyed the first book and though this second installment was good, it just seemed to lack a little something for me. It came across a little sketchy and the writing was sloppy. Spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors were littered throughout and, in places, it was obvious the text had been edited out, yet the surrounding text hadn't been adjusted to follow. In other parts, Mina rambled on for yonks and the point she was making was lost in the lengthy yabber; I'd get to the end and think 'What?' The ending also disappointed me. Ok, it was a good ending to set up for the next book, with clues of how the story's going to move on, but it didn't fit with Mina's character. Promising series though; I already have the third d/l'd to kindle :)
After a promising start I found this 2nd book in the series a bit slow to start off and about quarter of the way through the book was the explanation of the quest which started in book one - this felt a bit late for those new to the series and irrelevant to those who had read book 1 - perhaps putting it in a foreword or at least in the first chapter or two would have worked better? It was still an enjoyable story, and I'm glad I went on to download books 3 & 4, recommended for those who enjoy clean language, fantasy, sweet romances, stirring adventures etc.
I loved this book even more than the last and had a difficult time putting it down. I loved the twists, with Mina lost in the forest, Nan in a coma and the truth of who Jared is. Then with the added tension building between Mina and Jared and Mina and Brody it kept me hooked. I loved reading the next step in Mina's quest and cannot wait to read the next story. Definitely a series I would recommend. Xxx
I loved this follow up to Unenchanted which follows Mina Grimes as she tries to solve the fairy tales which her family have been cursed to survive through or the curse passes to the next Grimm, in Mina's case her younger mute brother.
This time around Mina tries to solve this tale on her own with out the help of her friends and only Jared, the mysterious Fae to help. Dealing with her own heartbreak from the previous book and all the usual teenage issues as well as having to investigate Jared true intentions and what fairy story she is currently in, is dealt with deftly and engagingly. Thoroughly enjoyable. Can't wait for the next one!
