    Description of Book Needs to be Changed

    This is not a review directed at the book. I have not yet bought it, but I thought that I would just point out that it is has the same description as the book "The Diamond Secret" in this series. I hope no one has gotten confused and I hope it gets changed soon. Thanks!

    Very good

    I liked this book very much. It was a bit slow in the beginning, but most books are. I liked that it had Robin Hood in it, and the end was great.

    Good Story

    This was a very entertaining read! I loved the way that they connected Robin Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk. This was by far the most cleaver of the Once Upon a Time series. I loved the differentiation of the twins too. Having twin sister, I know that they are compared a lot, so any read that will make twins have their own personalities is a delight.

    I never knew?!?!

    I never knew that Jack had a sister, or even a twin. It was very interesting learning about the World Above and the World Below.

    fantastic book

    This was a really good book where an ordinary girl finds out her mothers bedtime stories were true and that she's a special person. I felt like i could relate to gen because im practical, smart and i plan ahead. In this story all the characters discovered what kind of person they really were and they discovered their hearts true desire. The love part of rhis story also held my attention and it was very fascinating to see what was in store for them. This was an excellent well written book in the once upon a time series.

    more from this reviewer

    A fun and fanciful blending of two great stories!

    I was a little dubious when choosing this book but Dokey manages once again to weave Jack and the Beanstalk with a bit of Robin Hood, not to mention adding a brilliant and realistic female lead! An excellent read for anyone looking for a unique and worthwhile twist on some old favorites!! A Great Time!

    Two in one

    Two great stories combined to seem like they were origonally told together. Cameron Dokey combines Jack and the Beanstalk with Robin Hood to create a fun,twist filled retelling. Another great addition to the Once Upon a Time series.
