The Grumpy Fairy

The Grumpy Fairy (A Grumpy Fairy Tale Book 1) by [Dunlap, Elizabeth]

This is a quick and quirky read, perfect for fans of sarcasm and fairy tales. Honestly, I can see Drusinella existing in the land of Far, Far Away with Shrek and Fiona. In fact, I can see her being Fairy Godmother to their little baby ogres. Somehow, I think she, Shrek, and Fiona would get along. Donkey, on the other hand, would probably get on her nerves.
See, Drusinella is not your typical fairy. She’s been banished from Fairyland for turning Princes into frogs. She’s lost her wings. And she’s kind of grumpy. And by kind of, I mean a lot.

Before I read this book, I’d heard it compared to Deadpool and I can totally see it. Drusinella can be rude and sarcastic, but at her core, she is good and she is more than capable of love. She just hates to admit it.
Complete with a colorful cast of hilarious characters and author Elizabeth Dunlap’s own personal touch of magic, The Grumpy Fairy is a worthy addition to any fantasy (or satire) collection. I would happily read a sequel.

Review: Unhappily Ever After – A Villain’s Tale

I love fairy tales, and this is a great take on the traditional stories. It gives you a different perspective of the heroes and villains. There are always more than one side to a story and this book gives us the so called bad guys side. Things are not always what they seem, and people can hide their true selves. What would you do when you found out that you have been lied to all this time? Our hero must decide what us right when he finally learns the truth about everything.

This story grabbed me right from the start. It is a fun and charming read. The author does a good job of bringing the characters and their world to life. I loved seeing the Prince figure out what he truly wanted and fight for it. I was quickly immersed in this story and would love to see more from this world and those that live in it.
