Fairest (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale)
by Chanda Hahn
Overview (from B&N.com): Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? In the sequel to UnEnchanted, Mina Grime discovers that all is not fair when it comes to the Fae and their tales, especially when they don’t all play by the rules. Barely surviving the Story’s first fairy tale quest, Mina still has hundreds to go before she can end the curse on her family. But a new player arises to challenge Mina while new rules revamp the game she has just barely begun to understand. All the while, people are mysteriously disappearing, including Jared, who Mina must finally determine to be friend or foe. And with the loss of her greatest weapon, Mina must try to outwit a deadly hunter. Can Mina survive the most difficult quest yet while protecting those she loves from falling victim to one of the deadliest tales of all? Or will she become a pawn when she strikes a bargain with the Queen of the Fae?
I’ll admit after reading the first book in this series, UnEnchanted, my expectations may have been a bit high. This book (196 pages on the Nook) was a solid book within the series. Hahn once again came through with a thought out, unique plot that sucks the reader in. She gives you more information on the characters you’ve already started to love and more background on those that didn’t have quite as much page time in the first book. This definitely wasn’t my favorite book. It had nothing to do with grammar, spelling or underdevelopment. I just wasn’t a fan of the way the story actually went, total personal preference. I won’t give away what happens, but it was a moment where you’re slapped in the face with a reminder that it’s “An Unfortunate Fairy Tale”. Despite that, I would still recommend Fairest, especially if you’re already a fan of the series.
