I'm not your average hero. I actually wasn't your average anything. Just a poor guy working an after-school job at a South Beach shoe repair shop to help his mom make ends meet. But a little magic changed it all.
It all started with a curse. And a frognapping. And one hot-looking princess, who asked me to lead a rescue mission.
There wasn't a fairy godmother or any of that. And even though I fell in love along the way, what happened to me is unlike any fairy tale I've ever heard. Before I knew it, I was spying with a flock of enchanted swans, talking (yes, talking!) to a fox named Todd, and nearly trampled by giants in the Everglades.
Don't believe me? I didn't believe it either. But you'll see. Because I knew it all was true, the second I got cloaked.

Ok the description actually throws me a bit. BUT I really enjoyed Beastly So I want to give this one A shot :) Fairy tell retellings are awesome :) Do you have a favorite Fairy tale , and Re telling? Share in the comments! 


  1. Huh, I would have thought that the MC was the girl on the cover and not a guy. What fairy tale is this supposed to be a retelling of? My favorite fairy tale retelling is Ella Enchanted, by the way :)

  2. Jazu, It seems to be a mixture of alot of different fairy tales. So maybe not EXACTLY a retelling, but a way to weave classic tales into more current situations? either way, I'll give it a shot! -btw. i LOVE Ella Enchanted !!!


I love comments :) Feedback,recommends, you name it !
