"Fear is very powerful, almost as powerful as love."

Escaping from the woods and the evil witch only proved to be one narrow escape for Hansel and Gretel as they found themselves in another hostile situation once they return home. Their new stepmother is sneaky, tricky, and manipulative. Years go by and her treachery of leading the children into the forest fades

Thanks to Netgalley and Curiosity Quills Press for giving me this book to review.

Myths of Mish is a very enjoyable sci-fi fairytale retelling of Hansel and Gretel. It is fast paced, fun and I didn’t want to put it down. The book was full of adventure, romance and good chemistry between the three characters but it was predictable.

Hansel is paranoid, protective and stubborn but I was not a fan of him in the first half of the book as he was so rude and cruel but he grows out of it and shows he is

I got an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review :) and the first thing I need to tell you guys, is to not worry if you missed the first book, cause this one works perfectly well as a standalone... it takes place in another part of the world created by the lovely Katie, and if I remember correctly, actually before the events of said first book... but I might be mistaken, it's been a while since I read "Princess of Tyrone" :) anyway... :) what you need to know is that it ...more

If you don't remember from a little bit ago, I had finally found it - the Sleeping Beauty retelling that I finalllllllllly loved. It was Princess of Tyrone by Katie Hamstead, and I'm in serious heart eyes still because despite my intense love of Sleeping Beauty, there has never been a fairytale retelling of her that has been good - until Princess of Tyrone came around. When I heard that Katie was going to be doing a second book, I jumped at the chance to return to this beautiful sci-fi fairytale ...more
Hansel and Gretel survived the witch in the forest, but the stepmother who left them in the woods is still alive and well. Hansel has never been able to rid himself of the suspicion that his stepmother was a partner of the witch. Now, Hansel is positive that his stepmother is trying to get rid of him and his sister once again—him to a college he never should have attended and Gretel to an arranged marriage. So Hansel sneaks Gretel out of their father’s (the president) palace to prove once and fo ...more

Oh this was a treat, I'm a sucker for fairy tale retellings., and I was not disappoint! Like the first this book was rich in design, characters and of course the galaxy.. just wow!

I won't say all to much, because I don't want to spoil anything.

But my god, I was sucked into this book and I couldn't get out. It was like a vortex and I loved every minute of it. I loved the intertravle, the evilness and of course, how good conquers al

I really liked this book. It wasn’t quite as good as the first book in the series, but I still enjoyed reading it a lot. Honestly, I can’t really remember the last time I read such a fast-paced book. It felt like I started reading it, and then it was just over. I’m still trying to process everything. I’m a bit sad it was over so fast, though, because now I have to wait for the next book.

I didn’t really like Hansel and Gretel at first.

This second installment in the Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles features different characters from The Princess of Tyrone, which I was looking forward to. Meet Hansel and Gretel, ten years after the events in the well known fairytale.

Please let me introduce to you my theory: the real villain in this book is no-one less than: Hansel himself. He's an ass. Acts like an ass for the entire book and I'm supposed to cheer for him? No thank you.

“You should never compare yourself to other people. When you do, all you see is their strengths and put them against your weaknesses. It’s not a fair comparison.”

I am not usually a fairytale reader but I do enjoy reading the Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles. I love the idea of a story evolving from the ending of a famous fairytale. Even better is that the characters have their struggles from what they endured previously. I am always excited to see where the story goes.

Hansel and Gretel’s tale of horror with the witch in the woods is a famous story that I am sure most are familiar with. What I enjoyed with Myths of Mish is that Katie Hamstead gave us a deligh

Flying ships and magical planets--Hansel and Gretel dive into a galactic tale which brings the shadows and thrills of the original fairy tale to life in a whole new way.

Gretel's arranged marriage has been announced, and Hansel discovers that he's about to be 'pushed off' to one of the top schools. Some might see these as a blessing, but Hansel's convinced it's all part of his step-mother's evil plot to get rid of the two. Again. Hansel does the only thing he can--takes Gretel and runs.

First off I love Katie. Not only as a wonderful author but as a dear friend. Book one was honestly one of my favorite stories I have been so excited for book 2, and I was not disappointed. The characters were so personable. I fell in love with Minna and Hansel's whole story. The wicked people were truly wicked and the heroes were wonderfully amazing. I don't want to give spoilers but please know this book was amazing.

4.5 magical stars!

This is a clever and futuristic re-telling of Hansel and Gretel, with another fairy tale mixed in for good measure. (No spoilers here, you’ll have to read to find out which!)

Older brother Hansel is head strong and super protective of his sister Gretel, especially ever since their father’s new wife tried to lose them in the woods when they were children. Now that Hansel is 21, his father has given up trying to form an alliance via his marriage, and instead has arranged for sweet

Thank you, Katie Hamstead, for having a deep love for Firefly and continuing to use it as inspiration in her stories. I love it and it completely fills that Space Cowboy and Steampunk love that I have.

I just cannot get over how interesting this world is. I remember being absolutely blown away in the first book. In this one.... not so much. I honestly just needed more details to understand what everything looked and felt like. Because of the first book I assumed when they got into their ship that they would be going into space yet then there was talking about an ocean and.... I will admit to being more confused while read

Myths wasn't as good as Princess of Tyrone. Not that Myths was a bad book; but the hero, Hansel, is a little over the top with the paranoia and his abusive treatment of Minna through almost 3/4 of the story.

And Minna falls in love with him anyway (before he stops acting like an a-hole).

The plot itself is fast paced, and while I could see the plot twists coming, I didn't accurately predict where they were headed until each was upon me. Gretel tries desperately to play matchmaker between Hansel an

This is a loosely related story to Hansel and Gretel. Actually, it's more of what happens to them after the whole breadcrumbs and witch story. It's also in space, which is cool. Unfortunately, I did not like this one as much as the first book.

I could not stand Hansel. He was really just a jerk for most of the book. He was legit rude and obnoxious throughout most of the story. THEN he suddenly stops bein

This book was so awesome! It's a continuation of Hansel and Gretel, not a traditional retelling, and yeah, it was so great! We saw so much more of this universe, and yeah, I know it's set before book 1, since the main couple of the first book visited Hansel and Gretel's graves, it was great to see their story play out!

This was an interesting take on the traditional “Hansel and Gretel” story that went places I certainly wasn’t expecting. I liked that Wilhelmine had some hidden skills and that whole aspect (avoiding spoilers sorry to be oblique!), but the plot felt very meandering until we get to the main action. Additionally, the romance also felt much more forced than in “Princess of Tyrone” where the couple was able to develop a friendship in addition to the instant attraction. In contrast, I found Hansel to ...more

Myths of Mish is a sequel to Princess of Tyrone, but it can be read as a standalone novel. I have written a review of Princess of Tyrone, if you have not read it then you can find it here. I would recommend reading Princess of Tyrone first though due to different places and people being referenced. Thus, you will have a more informed mind of how the whole world that Hamstead has created works.

I feel bad being the first person to give this a lower rating, but I was just so bored for most of this book. Which was disappointing because I really liked the first one and that's why I gave this one a shot.

The world building here was great. It was so easy to picture everywhere they went and all that was going on. The story was interesting too. I loved the twist on Hansel and Gretel and what "really" happened in the woods to them. My problem was that the majority of this book was about Minna's

You can read my thoughts on Princess of Tyrone here:, but let's just say I was a bit of a fan. Although this second installment didn't immediately woo me as with the first, I did find that I grew to love the characters just as much as the story progressed. I absolutely adored Minna and the author's sneaky use of multiple fairy tales, not just the obvious, was really quite clever.
If you like retellings that aren't so close to the original tale that they are a bore, you sho

Hansel and Gretel have survived the witch in the wood, but have they truly escaped? The Myths of Mish takes the premise of Hansel and Gretel and expands upon it in a very creative fashion. Years after their escape from the evil witch, Hansel starts to suspect that their evil stepmother is again plotting to do away with him and Gretel.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and so when I was contacted and pre-approved to read this second book I was very excited as I knew this would be something I would enjoy, and I was right.

This story follow Hansel and Gretel years after they survived the witch in the woods which I thought was such an interesting concept which worked really well. At first, I wasn't too sure about the characters of Hansel or Gretel,
