Overview

A Fairy Tale by Shanna Swendson

Once upon a time, a girl named Sophie Drake danced with the fairies in the woods behind her grandparents' Louisiana home. But she closed the door to the fairy world and turned her back on the Fae when they tried to steal her little sister Emily. Fourteen years later, Sophie heads to New York City on a desperate mission. Emily, now an up-and-coming Broadway actress, has gone missing. Only Sophie suspects the Fae.

Now Sophie has her work cut out for her. Emily's abduction is part of a larger plot involving the missing Queen of the fairy realm. An upstart fairy is making a bid to assume control of the entire Realm, unite the fairies, and become master over the human world. To free her sister, Sophie must derail this power scheme and find the true Queen of the Realm.

That's a lot for a small-town ballet teacher to tackle, but with the unlikely aid of her sometimes flighty sister, a pair of elderly shopkeepers with a secret, a supremely lazy (but surprisingly knowledgeable) bulldog, and a wounded police detective searching for his own missing person, she just might prevail - if she can force herself to confront her own past and face her true nature.

About the Author

Shanna Swendson earned a journalism degree from the University of Texas and used to work in public relations but decided it was more fun to make up the people she wrote about, so now she's a full-time novelist. She's the author of the contemporary fantasy Enchanted, Inc. series and Fairy Tale series and the young adult steampunk fantasy Rebel Mechanics, which was named one of VOYA's best science fiction, fantasy, and horror titles of the year and which has been included on the Lone Star Reading List by the Texas Library Association. She's also contributed essays to a number of books on pop culture topics. She's a frequent guest at writing conferences and science fiction conventions, where she gets to talk about books and television and consider it "work." When she's not writing, she's usually discussing books and television on the Internet, singing in or directing choirs, knitting, taking ballet classes, or attempting to learn Italian cooking. She lives in Irving, Texas, with several hardy houseplants and too many books to fit on the shelves.

As a fan of Shanna Swendson's ENCHANTED INC. series (I own all 7 of her books) I was interested in this new novel. It's not as "light-hearted" as ENCHANTED INC. but definitely engrossing. I look forward to reading the sequel and seeing what she does with the series.

I loved this book. Sophie was someone I was a little afraid of, but I was cheering for the whole team by the end. Unfortunately this book was released druing theChristmas season so I had to keep putting it down to do other things. A fun read.
