Overview

Once upon a time, seventeen-year-old Norah Hart believed in the lure of fairytales and happily ever afters. That was before she was forced to live in a fairy tale nightmare.

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.

If Norah had known she’d be attending a boarding school for the nut job reincarnations of fairy tale characters, she would have insisted on going to Moscow with her father. But getting out isn’t as easy as she thought. Especially once Norah realizes she, too, is a storybook character. An Unknown. The first one in over one hundred years. Soon Norah learns she has the ability to rewrite the stories, putting everyone’s Happily Ever After in jeopardy.

Some princesses will do whatever it takes to protect their endings. Even if it means betraying the one closest to you.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Stephanie Bedwell
I couldn't put it down! I got so into this book. It's a great take on fairy tales that are not so, um, sweet. It well hook you and make you want more. I know I'm already ready for book 2.
Young Adult Author - Ryann Jansen
The Forgotten Fairytales is an amazing book. It has every component to a story you could possibly want. There is a love affair, a dangerous secret, a blossoming friendship. The way the world is written, you feel as though you are right there and you are one of them. It's so fun figuring out which characters correlate to which fairytale, too! Angela Parkhurst is a master of the written word, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

    The Forgotten Fairytales was creativity and imaginative from





    The Forgotten Fairytales was creativity and imaginative from the start with the author taking beloved Disney characters, and ripping them to shreds, finally building them into new, original characters.  With plot twists, humor, and a gripping story, I couldn't put The Forgotten Fairytales down.  The beginning of the novel was amazing, but as I continued the book, I became less and less impressed with the curtain characters and subplots.




    One of the characters I became less enthusiastic about was Wolf, he went from humorous, tough, and teasing to soft, emotional, and no edginess.  It was like two different people and I preferred the humorous Wolf over the other.  Norah had a back bone with every other person but with her sister she turns into a jellyfish at the slightest insult.  I know that her sister had issues, but really that is no reason for her to treat her family that way.  Also, she blames Norah for everything, so she annoyed me to no end.




    The characters all have a predestine story they have to follow exactly was an intriguing notion.  The mystery of Norah's fairy tale character kept me guessing throughout the entire novel.  It was fun to see how the author would betray the various fairy tale characters.       




    I enjoyed The Forgotten Fairytales, and can't wait for the sequel.  If you like Once Upon a Time you'll like this book.

    Um no.

    The book is pretty good. Not going to bash it, but SHE STOLE THE COVER MODELS FROM JENNIFER ARMENTROUT. That in itself is wrong on so many levels. Get your own beautiful people because these are taken. The book is decent though :)
