2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Bayou Fairy Tale by Lex Chase (371-09-02-2016)

This book was such a joy to read with its wonderful cast of characters and meticulous world building. The fairytale characters we know and love have been given so much more depth with backstories of their own that extend way beyond the simple tales I grew up with as a child. Mix with a well crafted plot peppered with both humour and darkness and you have an absolute gem of a book.

Screw-up Princess and Skillful Huntsman Trilogy: Book Two

A Fairy Tales of the Open Road Novel

Modern day fairy-tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One: he’s a guy. Two: he’s Sleeping Beauty, the most useless princess in existence. Throw in his true love, Corentin Devereaux, a huntsman descended from child-eating witches, and Taylor’s younger brother, Atticus―this generation’s Snow White―who tried to kill him. That didn’t go so hot.

For two years, Taylor and Corentin live their Happily Ever After. But Corentin is cursed to lose his memory every seven days, including his life with Taylor―a painful reminder that he can’t provide for the man he loves. Taylor insists Corentin has the strength to succeed, and when Taylor discovers a way to break the curse, he is more than willing to pay the cost.

When an enchanted blizzard devastates Corentin’s hometown of New Orleans, Taylor is convinced Atticus is to blame and grows desperate to find him amid the Big Easy turned frozen wasteland. Corentin believes Taylor is chasing a ghost while he chases the ghosts of his own past. Old tensions scratch open scars, leaving both to wonder if they have each other’s best interests at heart. The clock is ticking until Corentin loses his memory and the rabbit hole goes so deep they may never come out.
