I just finished reading “Enchanted,” by Alethea Kontiss. I received a free, signed copy from “Princess” Alethea herself at BEA, Book Expo in NYC back in May. I knew I’d love it as soon as I saw her sitting there at the “Enchanted” Booth with her tiara, glitter, and face paint (and if you don't know what I'm talking about, check out her site).
Sunday Woodcutter meets a friendly frog, and soon, she's in love. But, of course, in fairy tales, teen-aged girls and frogs are never what they seem - especially in a world where the ordinary is kissed by magic and secrets abound. When Sunday's sister, Wednesday, is wrapped up in an evil plot, Sunday, and the rest of her family, must embrace their true selves - magic and all - if they're going to save her. And maybe Sunday will find -no, strike that - maybe she will save her prince along the way.
Two sequels are in the works for the series: “Hero” and “Dearest,” both with dreamy covers. “Hero,” picks up a year after the events of "Enchanted" and features Saturday Woodcutter, the most "ordinary" of the Woodcutter sisters. I've got my copy on pre-order with Amazon. I can’t wait until next week when it’s released. If it comes out on January 6th, I wonder when it will arrive … As of right now, Amazon won’t commit to a date.
Two beautiful , but very different, covers have been released for “Hero,” both shown here. I can’t decide which I like better: the soldier or the princess …
I wonder which I’ll get, but not knowing is part of the fun!
