This is my nephew's wife's book she self published. You can order a hard copy through Amazon. My Mom let me borrow her copy. I'm really enjoying it. My 11 year old son (reluctant reader) read part of it (it's a thick book with small print so his teacher counted the first 10 chapters as one book) and he likes it too. I'll tell you more about after I finish it.

Update: finished the book. Can't wait until she writes the sequels so we can find out about each of the quests. If you like Shannon Hale or

I first picked up this book in October of last year. Since then, I have read it four or five more times but it’s taken until now for me to sit and write a review instead of just continuing on with devouring the rest of the series. I originally thought this would be a children’s book that might or might not hold my attention. However, this book absolutely surprised me in the best of ways.

I loved this book! It kept me from getting my housework done because I kept wanting to read "just one more page" to see what would happen next. My husband and 16 year old son also enjoyed the book. I can't wait for Jessica's next book to see what will happen with Adrian & Allegra's quest.

Jessica does a good job of winding together several subplots and adding information that will be useful to the reader as the story unfolds. Her characters are easy to relate to and will keep you smiling, la
I think Jess did a really great job on her first book. The idea was unique and intriguing. I admit a little trouble getting into it, and it was kind of slow, but I enjoyed it over all and am excited to read about the quests of the characters. I'm been thinking about them a lot since finishing the book, mainly attempting to forgive out which fairy tales will line up with George and Jacobi's quests. I really love the characters. They were very realistic and well-rounded.

I really wasn't expecting to love this book as much as I did. The characters were so realistic, and I got so attached to them. So much so that I was bawling my eyes out in year 5. Then I get to the end of the book, which came way to soon, and realize that I have completely forgotten that the babysitter was telling the story. I absolutely loved this book and can not wait to read the next books.

Good so far. The story shows how the Prince Charming of Fairy Tales went to school to prepare for that. The beginning of the revision, what is now available, moves much quicker than the original release; much better. I can't wait to read the sense of what happens to Adrian and Kaelen. I'm also looking forward to the scene with Lucian and Draconus' mother.

I thought it was a great first book and with time and experience, they will only get even better. The stories were captivating and it was a wonderful experience to see it from the point of the Prince Charming. The only thing I would change is the fast pace of covering so many years in one book.

If you've grown up with fairy tales and if you have been an inquisitive child and asked how the princes always knew exactly what to do...well, you have your answer right here. A story for all ages, relatable on every level, sarcastic dragons included.

Reading fueled her imagination, as did spending time with her five younger brothers and sisters. Everything was an adventure, something to be treasured and stories were her first love.
