Mina Grime is being hunted by fairy tales. One after the other, the Brothers' Grimm stories take over her life. Literally.

The sad truth is that not all fairy tales have happy endings. Before, Mina thought she'd have to complete every single tale in order to escape this curse. Now there might be an easier way.

But there are always obstacles, and when something tragic befalls Mina and her family, she must travel to the Fae plane to restore what they had before. In doing this, will she lose something even more precious?

My review: This is my second read of Fable—I wanted to get myself reaquainted with the story before I read Reign, the next installment in the series. I still enjoyed Mina's story the second time around.

Unfortunately, this one didn't involve as many fairy tales as the previous books. Mina's quest was different this time. But it involved a lot of adventure and much higher stakes.

I love the uniqueness of this book, the characters, and the world Hahn has created. The writing could be better quality, but I'm hooked on the story. Can't wait to see what happens next!

This is a series that needs to be read in order, so if you're interested, check out Unenchanted! It's a free Kindle book.

Content: Um....a kiss? It's squeaky clean. Recommended for ages 11+.

  1. I read Book 1, but haven't read the others. I may have to pick them up. Great review!

    1. I think you'd like them! They're very light, quick reads, but a lot of fun.
