I just found out about Chanda Hahn & her series after I purchased a kindle last month. The first was free & I soon purchased the rest. I was excited to find another story only to then become very disappointed that "Jared's quest" is no longer available as either part of the limited edition set or on its own. I think a limited edition at a promotional price is a wonderful treat for readers, but for us newer readers please re-release the set (I'd love exposure to other authors new to me as ...more

I only bought this bundle (for .99) to read the short story that involves the characters for the Unenchanted series, Jared's Quest, which I enjoyed. Maybe some day I will read some of the other books in this bundle but right now I have other books I know I want to read. FYI this bundle also has the first two books of the Unenchanted series, Unenchanted and Fairest, a cheaper way (right now) to get Fairest :)

I really enjoyed Chanda Hahn's books within this. However, the other ones were hard to get into and not as exciting.
For anyone who loves fairy tales with a twist, definitely read the UnEnchanted series - they're simple, but addictive.

I am giving it four stars because of Chanda Hahn. I am a huge fan and almost had a fangirling heart attack when Jared's story was going on. The other stories were just...dull. I could not get into them no matter how hard I tried.

Hook's Pan by Marie Hall - 3 stars

A wonderful retelling of the classics Peter Pan story with a lovely bad boy twist. Just as in the last fairytale installments of the Kingdom series Marie Hall does a fantastic job bringing in the characters unique and individual personalities. The twists on the classic Disney interpreted bad boys is thrilling. Hook was my favorite character in this book even though I felt bad for him I didn’t pity him and was drawn in by his oh so alluring charm. The on

I really enjoyed most of this box set. The Chanda Hahn books I totally enjoyed! I plan on finishing that series. RaShelle Workman's books were okay. And the Cameron Jace's books were good but gorey in spots but interesting. But I was really disappointed in the Marie Hall books. I just barely started them and there was language and sex. I didn't even get through the first 5 pages before I stopped reading them.

The first two books I'd already read. Some were better than others. I liked the Grimm Diaries Prequels the best. Some where borderline romance/smut which is fine, but not when bundled with YA retelling of fairytales.

it was nice to read straight through with no pause to change books while reading this on my kindle. It kept the story line and drew me into the story that much deeper. Love Chanda and her writing. Even the teens i work with who don't read are addicted! Can't wait to read the next in the series!
A good collection of stories.

Book One: ***** I really enjoyed the read and could not put it down. I loved trying to figure out which fairy tale was taking place.

Good stories

A great way to find new authors. Enjoyed the stories. Enjoyed the characters. This was different from what I usually read.
