Enchanted-NewEnchanted (Harcourt, 2012) by Alethea Kontis is the ultimate fractured fairytale, although not just one fairytale, but a whole magic sackful stirred together to make a delectable stew.
Sunday Woodcutter is the seventh daughter of the seventh daughter and what she writes has a tendency to come true. Her family doesn’t want to listen to her stories, but Sunday meets a frog named Grumble who does. He’s obviously a man under an enchantment. The two fall in love and he becomes a man again. Unfortunately, he is the last man that her family would accept–he’s the prince whose family is responsible for the death of Sunday’s oldest brother Jack.
I loved this book and am so excited that there’s a sequel already out. It’s called Hero. Hero-Cover
And in February, the 3rd book in the Woodcutter series will be out–it’s titled Dearest.Dearest-cover
