Pamela Ditchoff creates another feminist fairy tale mash-up worthy of Angela Carter and Barbara G. Walker, this time following Beauty's daughter Rune as she overcomes various trials and tribulations in Andersen Land.

While I felt this sequel was just as insightful, thought-provoking and enjoyable to read as its predecessor, the ending left me feeling cold. It felt unfinished and bittersweet (but I suppose in retrospect, that was kind of the point.) I sincerely hope the author has another installm

Actual rating 4.5

Again this sequel was just as good as the first! I am in love with Beauty and her daughter Rune and this book really helped wrap it all up into an ending they both deserve. At first I was unsure of Rune's character as she was snappy and rude towards her mother but while spending her time in Andersen Land that slowly changed, it was a bit of growth for Rune but she still remained true to herself. The satire and pop culture bits that I loved in the first have returned strong in th

I loved that not only did this feature Grimm Brothers’ characters, but it seamlessly combined the Hans Christian Andersen characters, too, sort of like Once Upon a Time, but kept to within the fairytale forest setting in the past, though oddly the Witch used modern slang and referenced modern things every so often.

Okay I did love this book. It's a great sequel to "Mrs Beast" but it isn't as good as the first one. But I still loved it. It was worth reading and I would read both of them together. It rounds off the story from where Mrs Beast left off really, telling us about Rune, Beauty's daughter, and her journey to make herself beautiful. It did make me a little sad because it sent me a different message from the first book and it wasn't a message I loved like with the first book. Still it was worth readi ...more

An enchanting book with a new spin on fairy tales the themes of fairy tales. Nice to have some strong female characters.
I loved this one far more than Mrs. Beast. The story was so sweet.
