Reign of Holly: Amanda Marin

I will read anything Amanda writes no matter the genre, plot, or length. The longer the better, tbh. Reign of Holly is absolutely no exception. In fact, please give us a trilogy of Holly after that ending please and thank you. 🥺 Reign of Holly is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty meets The Christmas Carol with a Fae twist. If you have never picked up anything by Amanda this would be the perfect time. Less than 70 pages, this bite size novella packs the Holiday fee

This review is for three books in this collection: Winter Flame by K. A. Last; The Snow Queen’s Daughter by Serene Conneeley; and Lady or Maid by Emily Deady.

In Winter Flame K. A. Last combines two fairy tales into one but gives a twist to The Princess and the Pea. The other is The Little Match Girl which I’ve enjoyed ever since I first heard it many years ago. You will need some kleenex handy I can assure you while reading this story!

Winter Flame is a short fantasy novella based on two fairytale 🧚🏼‍♀️ stories: The Little Match Girl 👧🏻 and The Princess 👑 and the Pea. It’s about a short adventure this girl goes on, on her way to town to try to earn some money 💰.

This review is for Winter Flame by K.A. Last.

Spoiler-Free Review:
This story was so short, it was only a little over 60 pages. So, I’ll keep my review brief. The story is adorable 😍, I absolutely fell in love with Ember and Rhys in the limited amount of time we

I love Christmas stories and fairy tale retellings and was excited at the prospect of an entire boxset of Christmas fairy tales. This review is based solely on Winter Flame by K. A. Last, because that’s the only story in this collection that I have had a chance to read so far. Winter Flame is the fifth story in K.A. Last’s Happily Ever After series of reimagined fairy tales. Each story stands alone, so they can be enjoyed in any order.

This is a sweet, clean romance in which Last puts her own un

I loved the story of Snooze or Lose by Jude Cocaigne it's a great sleeping beauty/sleepy dwarf retelling that has interesting twists and turns to keep you guessing right to the end. The author writes a beautiful new tale based off of a few favorite classics. You're sure to be pleased with the world building and well developed characters. Excellent read for a chilly night by the fire! ...more

My review is for "The Snow Queen’s Daughter" which is just one of the stories in this beautiful looking book.

I don’t know much about the original author of the Snow Queen, Hans Christian Anderson but this little short story definitely sparks my curiosity to read it one day.

“The Snow Queen’s Daughter” written by Australian author Serene Conneeley and is just one of the 15 wonderful stories featured in a Christmassy collective of reimagined fairytales called "Fairytale Christmas" and has been rel

What can I say about the snow queen's daughter, other then i found the story intriguing, magical and sucked me in from the first page, I was so fascinated by what would happen next the concept of the time loop. that I finished the book within two days.
I enjoy the witty and entertaining dynamic between Astrid and Finn. epically the romance and how they could inspire each other to follow their passions

Review for The Snow Queen's Daughter by Serene Conneeley

A fairy tale with hard lessons. Astrid is lonely. Finn is unsatisfied with his life. She fears her mom's meddling has tainted the relationship. A story full of teen angst. Delightfully done.

Entertaining. Happily Ever After. Romantic. Scary. Tear-jerker. Twisted. Unpredictable. Wonderful characters.

I received a copy of this book as a gift from the author. This is my honest review.

“Winter Flame” is a fun reimagining of “The Little Match Girl” and “The Princess and the Pea” combined to create an original fun read. Ember is a sweet, smart, and strong-willed young woman that is the perfect role model for this tale. Rhys is sort of a disappointment and should be a stronger man than the one portrayed. All in all, this is an entertaining read and one that I truly recommend.

This review is for Winter Flame by K. A. Last. and I enjoyed it so much I will go back and read all the stories in this anthology when time allows. A retelling of The Little Match girl mixed with The Princess and the Pea was heartwarming and enjoyable. I can highly recommend this story.

This review is for Winter Flame by K.A. Last.

Winter Flame is a beautiful, uplifting and inspiring read perfect for the holiday season. I've read many of Ms Last's reimagined fairytales, and I think this might be my favorite. The characters are perfect without being too much and I didn't want it to end.

Winter Flame by K.A Last - A beautifully written tale that's a retelling mix of the Little match girl and The Princess and the Pea. I love Ember feisty resilient and Rhys kindness to Ember when she's a stranger and continues as he gets to know her more.

I read Serene Conneeley's The Snow Queen's Daughter and I loved it! The descriptions of the scenery were so detailed, I could imagine standing in the corner watching the scenes unfolding and feeling the emotions of the characters. Can't wait to see how Serene's treat her next fairytale. I am now ordering the whole collection as well. ...more
I always find anthologies difficult to review because there are story types I love and others I don't care for. I am not a big fan of contemporary YA romance or anything overly hormonal/sarcastic, so I preferred not to read those kinds of stories. There were quite a few more in this vein than I'd anticipated, and it wasn't always aparant until having partially read the tale. I wasn't expecting it to be so heavily YAish, so was a bit saddened by that.

I was also a bit saddened that the fairytale r
Reign of Holly by Amanda Marin (3 stars): A retelling of a Christmas Carol. The imagery was interesting, but the plot was less engaging than I would have liked.

A Christmas Frog Leaping For Live by Audrey Rich: Too teenagey, didn’t finish.

Shrinking Cin by EL George: Too sad and teenagey, didn’t finish.

Fairytale Academy by Majanka Verstraedt (4 stars): Intriguing if this is part of a series. The world building is unique, but the ending is incomplete, leading me to wonder if there is more. If there

The Reign of Holly by Amanda Marin is amazing. I would buy a copy of it to have it permanently. I already reread it and would do so again. It is a clever cross between Sleeping Beauty and the Christmas Carol with Good King Wenceslas overtones. Geraldine is a compassionate queen but she grew up in the neighboring country where her brother rules as king. She is good and means well for her adopted kingdom, but her mistake of cursing her niece could have intense repercussio

This is a review of Forest of Frost: Sugared Plums and Poisoned Apples by Vivienne Hart

What a charming take on some of our favorite fairy tales. Ms. Hart spins a delightful retelling and blending of several classics. The language is engaging, “As appealing and perilous as poisoned pie.”, and the goodness of the princess and other beloved favorites brings us a message of love and contentment at a time when that message is sorely needed. The descriptions of the Queen and her world remind us that a

I enjoyed reading this anthology. The Authors' involved are genuinely skilled and have laid out a feast for the imagination. I ended each story with a smile firmly settled on my face. Although all the authors were talented, there were two that stood out to me by virtue of the way they took the known tale and turned it into something quite special. First of these is J.R.Castle and her offering of "King of Ice and Time." You will never look at Jack Frost the same way again. Only a short distance b ...more

I received ARCs for two stories in this collection. The first is Forest of Frost by Vivienne Hart

This short story is an entertaining mash-up of different fairy tales (sleeping beauty, snow white, the snow queen) and legends and myths (yuletide magic, St. Nicholas, Santa Claus). A young princess (17 YO) is trapped in an ice-bound world at the mercy of her cruel step-mother after her father the king dies. All she wishes for is freedom. This story encompasses her efforts to escape and the adventure
I've only read The King of Ice and Time from this collection. Although King of Ice and Time is not in the genres that I normally read, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a mix of a fairy tale retelling with the legend of Jack Frost. It's a quick, but thoroughly satisfying read. The North Wind is a kind and wise friend to Jack Frost. Jack had some learning to do. The winter images that are painted are beautiful and may make you shiver just a bit. I would recommend this story to lovers of fairy tales, ...more

this was not bad but I feel like they tried to add to many different stories/legends in to short a story. If they had expanded, turned it into a novel, it might have worked better, but I counted at least 3 fairytales and 2 versions of Christmas least. That is a lot of ground to cover for a short story. Premise was interesting but not enough actual writing to cover everything they shoved in. Flesh it into a novel and I think it would be dynamite.

This is a review of Reign of Holly: A Sleeping Beauty Tale that is part of this anthology. This was a really well written and interesting retelling of Sleeping beauty. Despite being a novella the characters and situations are well thought out and portrayed very well. It was an enjoyable read with a few twists along the way and no loose ends! I received a free copy of the book and this is my voluntary and honest review.

This review is for Snooze or Lose, one story in the Anthology. This was a great Christmas story. I love reading Christmas themed stories and this one was full of well developed characters, a cool story line and great writing. I highly recommend this story and if the others in the book are like this one, you can't go wrong!

This was a wonderful anthology of stories but this is a review for The Winter Flame by K. A. Last. It is a retelling of the The Little Match Girl and The Princess and the Pea. It has Ember and Prince Rhys meeting and getting to know e h other. She’s fiesty and he kind as he gets to know her. But can she prove that she’s worthy of being with a Prince?

This Review of Fairytale Christmas is specifically for the book Jewel of Mine by Diana Dawn, and is by farone of the best short stories I’ve read in a long time. Yeah, I're thinking Snow White was pretty simple and how could anyone make it better. Diana dawn did! Taking the simple premise and mixing in whole new elements made this story totally new again! Don't take my word for it. Read it for yourself! You'll end the story with a big smile on your face! ...more

Winter Flame by KA Last
Have you ever wished for a version of The Little Match Girl where she is found before she freezes? Or a version of The Princess and the Pea where the pea measures the tenderness of the princess' heart, and not her skin? If so, this is the story for you! Last has written a beautiful wintertime fairytale that captures all the wonder and magic of these two tales and mashes them into a beautiful sweet romance.
