  • Lies of Golden Straw

    Lies of Golden Straw is the second in the fairy tale re-tellings, and it is very different, but just as amazing as End of Ever After (book one). This one is a Rumplestiltskin re-telling, but you get so much more. Merlin is in here, plus a couple of famous storytellers themselves, who I won't name. Trust me when I say they all fit perfectly in this story. Told from the perspective of Millie, you find out about her childhood as the Miller's Daughter, right through to the present when she goes to Ella's coronation, and after. It is full of grand descriptions, fairy tales you may know, and situations where no one is really the winner. I have to say I think this is the first book where the couple are not in love. Instead, their relationship is built on friendship and respect. It makes sense for the story, but I will admit to wanting a HEA for Millie and...? 😉 I won't say this name either as I don't want to ruin it for anyone else! An emotional story that is rich in story-telling history, I was lost within the story and absolutely loving every word. I honestly don't know if there were any errors as I was too engrossed. I would highly doubt it though, as the author is E.L. Tenenbaum, and I have only read the highest quality from her. An absolute stunner of a book that I loved. Completely and utterly recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

  • Another excellent retelling!

    A Rumplestiltskin retelling set in the same universe as the Cinderella one – in fact, the two characters meet briefly, so we get to see that scene from the opposite perspective in this book. Also in the previous book, it is established that people with purple eyes have magic; Ella was a special exception, but now we meet a purple-eyed character who does have magic: Merlin! Yes, that Merlin. In addition to the story of the miller’s daughter spinning straw into gold, we get to see the famous wizard’s origin story unfold in a surprising way! Again, Tenenbaum creates a retelling that really delves into the mind of this fairy tale princess, makes her feel rational, relatable, understandable in her choices, her courage, her fears, her love, her loyalty. And I was not expecting the Merlin backstory, which was really interesting and fit so well into the Rumplestiltskin story! It also broke my heart a little. But I was still very satisfied with the ending.

    Thanks for your feedback!
