Blog Tour - Topaz Reign


About the book: Fairy tales are simply tales, told and re-told, but changed over time.

It has been four months since Maggie learned the dark truth behind the tale of the Princess and the Pea and freed Princess Lindy from the cursed Emerald. Lindy is now back in the past where she belongs, queen of her tiny Scandinavian country, and Maggie is a fully reformed ex-stalker.

Except … she can’t stop doing internet searches on Lindy and her country. 

One morning, Maggie wakes to find history turned on its head. Apparently, you can’t destroy a centuries-old curse without consequence. In order to prevent the changes in history from wiping out the present, Maggie resurrects her stalking gene and learns that fairy tales don’t stay dead for long.

Or at all.

Back in 1623, Lindy is juggling a threat to her family, a handsome new guard she’s not supposed to have feelings for, and a cursed Topaz with ties to the tale of Thumbelina. When past and present collide, Lindy and Maggie are brought together again, and another of Andersen’s tales turns from twisted fiction to chilling fact. 

My review: Wow, I really loved this book! The whole thing is great! It has great plot, great characters, great action and adventure, and a touch of romance. It really has everything you could want in a book!

I loved Lindy and Maggie. The book switches back and forth between the two and for most of the book, they are not even in the same time period. It's so great! I love the way that Maggie was not able to get Lindy out of her thoughts, and how she was able to check on how things were going with her through the history books and even online. So she knew right away when the websites changed that something was wrong. Then she was able to send Garon back to fix whatever had gone wrong.

Then there's Maggie. I loved the way she is. She's queen in 1623, but she's out climbing rocks and wishing for yoga pants and certain modern conveniences she had left behind when she traveled back in time. I love that she's a bright young woman and by all accounts ready to lead her country. There's a scene in the market that I loved with a young flower seller where you really see Maggie's character and the kindness she shows for everyone. 

This book has a huge cast of characters, both in the past and in the present and they are all so great! 

And the plot is just awesome. I love the sense of adventure, danger and urgency that you feel throughout the whole thing. I loved the way some characters can remember history the way it was supposed to be while pretty much everyone remembers the version that is accidentally created.

This is a great book for any teen to pick up, I have no worries handing this book to my own teenager. I know she'll love the whole imagination of it. And I loved it myself!
