I received this book for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


A psychotic, couture-clad, shoe obsessed Princess.A not-so-charming, alcoholic Prince.A hot Big Bad Wolf that she absolutely cannot fall for—no matter how well he kisses.
Seventeen-year-old, Norah Hart had no clue when she walked into boarding school, she'd be surrounded by reincarnated fairy tale characters, let alone learn she was one herself. In a world where the lines between good and evil blur, Norah struggles to find her place. When her actions throw off the balance of the fairy tale world and happily ever afters, enemies surface, ready to destroy her at any cost.

Norah Hart is going to a boarding school in Germany. She thinks this is a way to bring some stability to her and her sister’s life. She learns after she arrives that the school is for reincarnated fairytale characters. Every student is a fairytale character including her. Norah struggles to find her place in this new bizarre world.

In ” an Oyster Shell – An imaginative fun read about fairytales.

The Pearls –The author had an interesting take on fairy tales. That the fairy tales we know now are a rendition of a darker tale that’s been rewritten. It was fun to follow Norah through her adventures as she tries to figure out who’s who. I like how though there were designated villains in the story the line was blurred on good and evil.

The setting was beautiful. Set in an enchanted castle in Germany. The descriptions of the place made you feel as if you were right there.

The romance was interesting. A little bit of a love triangle at first. Norah has to decide between Wolf and Prince Charming. It was an entertaining aspect of the story.

The Sand – It was a good book.

4 Pearls!

    I remember seeing this book and being interested and then I guess I forgot about it and now you’ve reminded me lol. It does sound like a fun book though! I like when the line between good and bad are blurred, and I actually do like love triangles. Plus I don’t think I’ve ever read anything set in Germany. Great review!
