Screw-up Princess and Skillful Huntsman Trilogy: Book One
A Fairy Tales of the Open Road Novel
Modern fairy-tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One: he's a guy. Two: his perfect brother Atticus is the reincarnation of Snow White. Three: Taylor has no idea which princess he is supposed to be. Four: Taylor just left his prince (a girl) at the altar. Despite his enchanted lineage, Taylor is desperate to find his Happily Ever After away from magic, witches, and stuffy traditions. Regrettably, destiny has other plans for him. Dammit.
When word reaches Taylor that Idi the Witchking has captured Atticus, Taylor is determined to save his brother. He enlists the help of rakish and insufferable Corentin Devereaux, likewise of enchanted lineage. A malicious spell sends Taylor and Corentin on a road trip through the kitschy nostalgia of roadside Americana. To save Atticus, they must solve the puzzles put forth by Idi the Witchking. As they struggle, Taylor and Corentin's volatile partnership sparks a flash of something more. But princesses have many enemies, and Taylor must keep his wits about him because there's nothing worse than losing your heart... or your head.
Very creative. Love how the author used fairy tale folklore and set the book in contemporary time period. The use of Americana was a fun twist on their adventure. The only negative I have is that it took so long for the two of them to get their act together that we had only a little at the end where they actually were a couple. I would have liked a bit more on that aspect, but I understand why Lex wrote it the way she did for the plot to work.
Lex brought her world to life very well. My only negative was that I would have liked a bit more interaction with the various locations they traveled. There were very detailed scenes for some and glossed over info for others. A better balance might have made the whole book that much better.
The main and supporting characters were all very identifiable and had dynamic personalities. At times I felt really bad for the brother and other I wanted to beat him senseless. I guess that means he was written well :) The fairy godfather was really funny and added a great dynamic to the two primary characters relationship. The huntsman and the princess had well developed back stories that flowed well with the rest of the book. Their growth both as individuals and as a couple built throughout and culminated in a way that left the reader wanting to see more of them together.
Well written. The language was appropriate to the style. flowed smoothly and the pace was maintained to keep the reader interested."
"This was a thoroughly enjoyable adventure through a world vividly brought to life by the author. The plot was original, fast moving, and unpredictable.
The characters were engaging, three dimensional and finely drawn. The writing flowed easily and kept me engaged from start to finish. I will certainly look
out for more from this author. "
The intense quirkiness of this book totally made it for me.
I love this book. The characters are fantastic, the plot entertaining and just the nuances to make classic princess into princes and all of the other fairy tale aspects were superb. This was only of my favorite reads from the last year.
It was so different from anything I have read before. Taylor is a princess who has no idea which one he is.. Oh and he is a man! I loved the comedy in this book! Taylor runs from his wedding which was supposed to be to a prince in a woman's body. That is when he meets Corentin who is a huntsman but also is so much more, which I cant say without giving away any spoilers.
There was so much action in this book and secrets that I was on the edge of my seat until I finished because I could not put this book down! Also the sweet and steam between these two was perfect.
I really loved this world the author created and the pretense of this book was awesome!
Oh and the ending was so good when he finds out everything! You get to also meet so many characters in this book. The ones you will love and the ones you thought were good then they show you their true self.
All together I really loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!
