This wasn't nearly as good as "The Fairy Godmother" but was a cute little novel in and of itself. I enjoyed the humor throughout and the light and frothy atmosphere is just what I was looking for in this read. Having said that, however, I wish there had been a little more meat to the story. It started to drag near the end, and I wasn't sorry when the book was over. Oh well, on to the next volume in the series! ( )

I didn't like it quite as much as the first in the series, Fairy Godmother, but it was still a good read. I like the way Lackey writes her characters. ( )

Fun little story, but not nearly as funny and well written as the first book in the series. ( )

This was an enjoyable book, but hindered some by the fact that I read it after book #3. So I knew one of the major plot twists before the book was barely more than half-way through. However, it is a fun read, and I do enjoy seeing how Lackey tweaks traditional fairy tales to create these stories. ( )
