I am so little-girl giddy over these books it's not even funny. I'm sure I've gone on and on about how much I love the unicorns to my friends and family so much that they would be happy never to hear the word "unicorn" again - but people ... this unicorn has a lisp! And I laughed so hard!

This story has so much in it - it's a mix of Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and several others, including Puss-n-Boots, Hansel and Gretal and The Frog Prince. There are epic trials, dragons, sleeping princesses, mean dwarves and even some Norse mythology thrown in there.

This is one of my more favorite stories out of the bunch, and I was happy to read that there is a Five Hundred Kingdom's short story out there too, because, frankly, I need more! Fantastic set of books for the fantasy lover and this series has made a Mercedes Lackey fan out of me for good.
