Enchanted

Today's post is about 'Enchanted' by Alethea Kontis. It is 305 pages long excluding the author's note at the end and it is published by Harcourt. It is an interesting retelling of the Frog Prince. I really enjoyed this book. The writing is strong and never breaks the flow of the story. The tale goes between the frog prince Rumbold and Sunday. Sunday is the youngest of eight siblings and a cousin living with her family. Her other sisters are named for the rest of the days of the week and her brother is Jack Jr. Her family blames the prince for Jack jr.'s death. I don't want to give too much away but there are fairies, balls, a power mad king and of course true love. But like all loves stories the course of true love never did run smooth, this is no different. This story is a fun ride and I hope that the author continues this story by following her sisters. Definitely worth the read.
