In the twenty-first century, however, there are a few things we can do about this. The gender role reversal also adds to the humor within the story and helps to develop the personalities of the two characters.

Want to Read saving…. Seems Kontis is working her way backwards. Another wonderful fairytale that I would recommend to anyone who loves this type of story! Nominate Princess Alethea…for everything! The writing is clear and enjoyable. The heroine in this story is none other than our Saturday.

Friday is the perfectly even tempered and generous heroin. I expected Dearest to have some mention of where we left Saturday at in Hero.

All of the characters are so easy to engage with and so likable, it makes them a joy to read about. It was so confusing and weird. The humor in this book delightful.

Saturday was the sister who didn’t get any magical gifts.

More Woodcutter Sisters, please! March 18, at 8: I hope you all had as much fun as I did hunting down all these different covers yesterday. But then Trix puts a spell on them and leaves without them, since it was his mother. This intertwines the story of the seven swans and their sister with all of the already interwoven stories.


Kontis once again takes what could be a formulaic story and moves it in a dramatically unexpected direction with this latest installment in her delightful series.

When they wake up and startle her and she falls off the tower,they turn into swans,and save her.

Now I am worried that I might never know what happened to all the family! I just love this series!

FTF Book Review: Alethea Kontis – Hero

Overall I just couldn’t herro the feeling that the author had about 47 concepts that she really loved and instead of picking a few and making it work, she mashed them all together like a kitchen sink sundae. I’m just going to try to power through this. Peregrine is another story.

Inconsistent pacing and a habit on the author’s part to blithely skip over some minor but awfully useful explanations made me skim through the last part of this. Girl or boy, have a go at these.

Friday was too ridiculously pollyanna to be real. And to Joe, Kassidy, and Ariell—my Fairy Godfamily—thank you for keeping my feet tied to the ground while I reach for the stars. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and Rough and tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she’s the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard.


This book seems quite a bit shorter than the first one, but I kind of like that because it isn’t quite so complex and confusing. Would I Recommend It: It just doesn’t stop. The characters were so much fun. I don’t think I will ever understand how she can take so many different fairy tales, smoosh them all together the way she does, and have the story make sense.

And, because I have the power to do so, I can publish the acknowledgements here—complete with links and pictures—so nothing is lost.

Kettner have true magic in the their minds, eyes and fingers. Peregrine view spoiler [does change back into a “full” man at aethea end, but we don’t really know how that makes him feel, if he’s okay with it, etc. It begins with the sea coming from out of nowhere and ends This chick supposedly falls in love with everybody, is loved by everybody, has this army of totally random orphan children, and empathizes with everybody.

Not so bad, in the grand scheme of things.
