  • Excellent fairytale remake series!

    I love the Romance a Medieval Fairytale series - I've probably read all of them available by now! This box set is an excellent starter for the series, especially for the price! The Romance a Medieval Fairytale series is definitely for adults as they almost all deal with adult content (sexuality, abuse, etc), but very well handled and enjoyable.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • These Aren't the Grimms' Fairy Tales You Remember

    Demelza Carlton's twisted fairy tales are among my favourite fantasy stories and the three included in this box set are some of her best. In Enchant, this beauty isn't a helpless maiden but a powerful enchantress, determined to undo the beast's spell. In Dance, the disguised daughter of an oriental lord goes to fulfill her father's obligation to provide soldiers to the king's war effort. This careful melding of Mulan with the classic Cinderella is probably my favourite of all of Carleton's fairytales. And finally, in Fly, a king sends his first wife's daughter to marry a neighbouring prince and a daughter by a concubine to be her lady in waiting but things go awry when the intended bride is injured and suffers from amnesia. Maidens, handsome princes, magic and, of course, geese figure in this retelling of the tale of the Goose Girl. I loved all of these stories and who wouldn't love the great price. If you love classic fairy tales or medieval fantasy, this collection needs to be on your buy list.

  • Superb Set

    This is a brilliant set to read. Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start. Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believable. Great drama and romance with wonderful world building. Can't wait to read what the author brings out next. Recommend reading.

  • Once Upon a Time

    "A sword-wielding Cinderella. An enchanting Beauty. A villain who might not be so bad after all … Once upon a time, before the Brothers Grimm, when fairytales were romantic fantasies for entertaining adults and frightening children … Three twisted tales inspired by the classic fairytales … for adults who still love reading fairytales, though they're a little darker now, making that happily ever after so much sweeter." This boxset includes: 1. ENCHANT: Beauty and the Beast Retold I've read the reviews of this retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story. Although I understand some may have some issues with certain actions by the king, but this is a wonderful ADULT tale set in enchanted times. When the story involves good vs evil, there will be ADULT evil involved. When King Thorn demands the enchantress, Zuleika's mother, be brought before him with a needed curse or her children and family would pay the price, Zuleika, youngest daughter an enchantress herself, sets a curse upon a hand mirror as requested and appears before the king to take her dead mother's place. Afterward, the king proves to be dishonorable and not only holds Zuleika captive in his castle but informs her he not only owns and commands all the land but everyone in it and proceeds to take her by force placing a curse upon himself. Zuleika wants to take the cursed mirror back from the king when she uses magic to leave but decides she is more honor-bound than the man who rules the land. There are consequences both good and bad, but you have to read and follow what happens. This is a wonderfully told story with twists and turns. Truly an adult Beauty & the Beast with twists. 2. DANCE: Cinderella Retold 3. FLY: Goosegirl Retold I've chosen to give a review on 'Enchant: Beauty and the Beast Retold' and couldn't be more thrilled to do so. I think there's a part of every romantic who still loves fairytales, regardless of age, and when a bit of erotic is added it only adds to the appeal. As I finish these books, I'll add to the review but most certainly wanted to get this review out so you would know it was well worth it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I liked the clever re-telling of old classics😊

    📜Fine fairytale fashioning All three stories were entertaining and a fresh transformation of classic fairytales. I first read some of them in 2017 and they still hold their charm in a re-reading. Enchant 4🌟stars Cruel enchantment of a really nice prince👑 🌹I liked the way author Demelza Carlton transformed the traditional Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Here the cursed prince is an unsuspecting innocent, good guy enchanted only thanks to his power-hungry brother and the beauty he falls for is a powerful sorceress who finds that she is the one who unwittingly cast the spell. Trust issues and secrets work to keep them apart while his invisible servants plot to push them into each other's arms. The one jarring note was the unexpected heat at the story's end that did not quite jive with the story's fairytale vibe. Nevertheless it was a good, enjoyable story. Dance 5🌟stars Very well-written retold fairytale with a strong, independent heroine👍👍 Really enjoyed this well-written, retold fairy tale which seems to draw from Mulan and Cinderella. It's appropriate for adults and young people alike, a bit of war and disfigurement (the Chinese tradition of binding a little girl's feet) but not too graphic, and the romance is just that, feelings unacted upon. I like sensual stories but this does not need the heat. Fly 5🌟stars 👑📜A heroine to admire & a prince to respect: good story😊 I don't recall ever reading the original fairytale on which this story is based but it really did not matter. I enjoyed the plot and Ava's spirit particularly. Yes, the story starts with war, rape and pillage, but I think it was a key backdrop to define Prince Arun's character and maybe set his brothers so far apart from him that the reader does not mind about their comeuppance! Here youngest royal siblings get their chance to shine and prove that birth order does not determine a child's worth, savvy or success. It's a quick, easy, enjoyable read with a touch of sorcery and a slow build on the romance.
