Book Review: Spelled by Betsy Schow


Author: Betsy Schow
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Pages: 352
Series/Standalone:
Synopsis:
Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.

Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks—like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the brooding prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.

Talk about unhappily ever after. 

Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called "Kansas." Now it's up to Dorthea and her pixed off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse...before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.


MY THOUGHTS
I had my doubts about whether or not I would enjoy this book. 
In the beginning it seemed like it was going to be a miss because it was a bit slow and uneventful. As Dorthea and The Prince began the wacky journey that she set in motion with wishing on a cursed star it became clear that it would be a fun, crazy and enjoyable read. 

I loved that it was this love/hate relationship with Dorthea and the prince, but when things got tough they would be right there for each other.

The story definitely kept me on my toes trying to figure out what was going to happen next.

I'm ready to read a sequel. :)

(Sorry it's so short)

  1. I have seen a lot of mixed reviews for this one, but it remains on my 'must read' list. It is good to know ahead of time that it starts slow. I will keep that in mind and read on. Thanks for your review.
