“Have you ever heard Red Riding Hood howl at the moon?”
When Cerise, Verre, Blanca, and Aura are forced to complete a near-impossible task, it seems as if their loved ones’ lives are as good as over.
“Or seen Cinderella kill a man with just a shard of glass?”
And despite meeting a dragon, internal disputes, and the fact that they’re all most likely going to die, the young women grow close. Too close.
“Snow White has vanquished more with her poisoned breath than her beauty.”
For secrets will come to light that have the power to change everything. There is a traitor in their midst, one who could potentially save or destroy them.
“And Sleeping Beauty? She will bring slumber with but a touch of her hand.”
Um hello, Oceane, you cannot just end a book like that and expect us to wait around for the next one. We need answers! I really enjoyed this book though it probably wasn’t my favorite, I still enjoyed seeing a unique twist on multiple fairytales. I really cannot wait to see how Oceane ties this all up in the next book.
As much as I enjoyed getting to know all the characters…Vere and Bane were my favorite. I loved them so much. Their chemistry and unique personalities were so enduring. Bane is just a reason himself to read this book, he honestly was my favorite besides his darling wife. Ughh I loved these two so much.
The plot was interesting and I really enjoyed seeing where everything will go. I am eager to see how it advances in the next book. That cliff hanger though, man. Why Oceane….why?
Check out this book if you love fairytales. Oceane provides such a unique twist on them and I really loved that!

About the Author
Oceane McAllister is a fangirl-supreme, tea-drinking, novel-writing, thunder storm-obsessed indie author from New England. First and foremost a Christian, she tries to glorify her Lord and Savior in all that she does. Oceane also has a passion for writing YA fiction and believes it possible for them to be both exciting and clean at the same time. With a tendency to wear only black, she is a staunch defender of the Oxford comma, abhors love triangles, and may or may not be obsessed with black olives.
Most days you can find her curled up on the couch typing away furiously on her computer. She is most definitely a Slytherin, Enneagram 3w4, and has convinced herself that she could win the Hunger Games. Some of her biggest inspirations are C. S. Lewis, Brandon Sanderson, Marissa Meyer, Jennifer A. Nielsen, and Suzanne Collins.
