Fairest (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Book 2) by Chanda Hahn
Mirror, Mirror, on the wall,
Who is the Fairest of them all?
In the sequel to UnEnchanted, Mina Grime discovers that all is not fair when it comes to the Fae and their tales, especially when they don’t all play by the rules. Barely surviving the Story’s first fairy tale quest, Mina still has hundreds to go before she can end the curse on her family. But a new player arises to challenge Mina while new rules revamp the game she has just barely begun to understand.
All the while, people are mysteriously disappearing, including Jared, whom Mina must finally determine to be friend or foe. And with the loss of her greatest weapon, Mina must try to outwit a lethal hunter. Can Mina survive the most difficult quest yet while protecting those she loves from falling victim to one of the deadliest tales of all? Or will she become a pawn when she strikes a bargain with the Queen of Fae?
Okay, I liked the first novel UnEnchanted but I love Fairest (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Book 2). It was the final few pages that did for me. It’s the gumption of the character Wilhelmina Grimm, in those few chapters she turn the entire series on its head.
Now she is an emboldened character that I believe could actually complete the two tails. She will do whatever it takes to complete them. In those few final chapters Chanda Hahn redefined her burgeoning series.
It’s a page turner from beginning to end. I like the lighthearted tone of this book but I also felt the urgency of the character. Mina Grime is a character that’s in more control of her emotions than I gave her credit for. Sometimes I did think she’s a little too apathetic to her plight until the same afore mentioned final pages.
Fairest is like part two of a single story being told because it starts just a few day after. Everything that happens in these two books is the tip of the iceberg, which has just flipped. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
Before reading this book you should definite read UnEnchanted (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Book 1) first; a few of the references come from this book.
I give Fairest (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Book 2) 5 out 5.
