I really liked this book by Jenna Jennings. I loved parts of it. The plot idea of kids being descendants of real fairy tale characters is an intriguing one. The way the teens are written was believable, and I liked that they all came from different backgrounds, and weren't the blond-haired, blue-eyed cutouts we've become used to from Disney movies. The action was really good when they are pulled from their own worlds, and continued at a fast pace for pretty much the remainder of the book.
I liked the characters they met along the way, and the things they learn and pieces they put together in order to make their way around the fairy tale land of Elorium. I did enjoy the scrapes they got themselves into and found it all to be very interesting.
The trouble comes in the last third of the book. I really feel like it started to get repetitive. I can only take so much adventure. I was getting a little tired of them being drug around by everyone and having to rescue each other. However, those who LOVE adventure stories and fairy tales will truly enjoy this book. I would recommend it for young adults, and advanced readers age 10+.
I received this book free from Patchwork Press in exchange for an honest review.
