If you’re looking for a fun, light-hearted read to whisk you away to a fairy tale land and make you laugh out loud, this is the book. Sky’s witty, irreverent sense of humour is almost Monty Python-esque at times, so if you love that style of comedy you’ll definitely love this series.
One of my favourite kinds of story is the ‘behind-the-scenes of a well-known tale, what really happened’ type of thing – think Lion King 1.5 where Timone and Pumba tell the story from their side (if you haven’t watched it, it’s a delight). This is exactly that, only ten times better, because Sky has combined classic fairy tales (Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast) with the fae, and chucked in a dark angel for good measure, and woven them all into a modern retelling of the Wizard of Oz with added humour (the thing missing from most fairy tales, I find).
This is the third in a series, but all can be read as standalone novels, you just might miss out on a bit of context. Suitable for teens and adults alike.
Snap up the ebook up on Amazon for just 99c/77p and spend a few happy hours with a Beast dressed as the cowardly lion, a fae prince trapped inside a tin suit, and a dark angel masquerading as a brainless scarecrow as they escort Ellie to meet her absent father, Oz the Great and Terrible.
Enjoy, my pretties!
