I went into reading Fairytale knowing what to expect from the story itself from fellow readers who recommended it to me. What I didn’t expect was the emotions that flooded from me towards the end of this book. When I was warned to have tissues close by I didn’t listen as I should have.
We meet the three main characters as young children each of them on a very different path. Adam Reid an adventurous child who is beaten into believing that his trip to Rush was a foolish dream. Brigit, a lost orphan believing in fairytales as a way to cope with being alone in the world. And Bridin, a prisoner living on a hope of a future where she is reunited with her sister and returning to their world. All with a destiny to fulfill.
Skip ahead to adulthood for these three individuals, and Adam and Brigit meet. Sparks fly!!! Brigit is hiding something and racing against time to save the only person she has ever loved. Adam knowing all about the myths and legends of fairies knows deep down what Brigit is and is fighting it. As we continue on in the story we follow with Adam and Brigit as they both fight with their childhood dreams of fairytales and the harsh world that has made them stop believing in the first place.
The beginning is a slow start but well worth the buildup because the end was amazing knowing what fate has in store for these 3 characters and asking yourself how is “happily ever after” going to happen for them and then seeing how it all comes together.
I was choked up twice during this book and found myself being whisked away into the emotional rollercoaster the last 3 chapters take you through.
Overall I was mesmerized by this story and I am dying to read the next in the series. The one thing I was missing was a little bit more about the world of Rush, but I have been promised by my fellow readers that book 2 will satisfy that need and that I will not be disappointed. So on to book 2 I go, can’t wait to read Bridin’s story!!!!
I give this book 4 ½ out of 5 stars and recommend it for any readers looking for a new spin on Fairytales.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The writer allows you to get to know the main characters and you can't help but fall in love and cheer them on.
