About the book: When Conrad, Moiria, and Heppson’s evil enchantress mother tries to convince them to follow her dark ways, they must each decide where the line lies between good and evil, magic and mythology. Based on a lesser-known fairy tale, this young adult book features an impossible romance, an intricate plot, and twists you won’t see coming.
My review: This book is a cute fairy tale type story. It's cute, I liked the characters, except for the evil queen, but obviously! The plot at the beginning seemed a bit slow, but once I was in the middle of the book, it picked up and I found that I didn't want to put it down. This seemed like an original story to me, but it might just be that I've never heard the fairy tale that the story is based on. I liked that the lives of Conrad, Moiria and Heppsen were intertwined with the lives of Lark and Heart in ways that none of them could even begin to imagine. This is a cute, clean, fun young adult novel that you will love if you enjoy reading fairy tale type stories!
