After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home. Stolen from her parents at a young age and forced into service by the Wicked Queen, Elanor now wants nothing more than to see the queen removed from power. But Elanor has secrets, mistakes she's spent years trying to forget, and the closer the rebels get to the throne, the harder it is for Elanor to keep her past hidden away.
With fellow rebels on her side—including Princess Aislynn, Thackery, and the handsome and mysterious Matthias—it is time for Elanor to make a decision. Will she protect her secrets? Or risk everything to save the people she loves?
The thrilling companion to Elissa Sussman's masterful and original fairy tale, Stray, that will appeal to readers of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and fans of Wicked, Into the Woods, and the Disney princess movies.
Gah, it was so great to read this book! I'd only recently read Stray, so it was really great to just dive into this book! It was great to really get to know Elanor, and see Aislynn and Thackery again! Just an awesome book!
Really enjoyed seeing things from the side that wasn't clouded by the "path" and all that nonsense. Though maybe a different type of clouding, with what the Wicked Queen did to to all of them. But there was a few major twists there!
My one complaint, is that I wish that this book was longer! We could've had more time to explore what was going on, and learn more, and just plain have more time with them! But there's always the next book, yeah!
So my suspicions from the first book, about Aislynn and her Fairy Godmother and the wolf, well, are continued on in this book, and added to them, is Elanor and her fox! This series is called the Four Sisters, and we got the other version of the story. And we had the power objects. So yeah, things are starting to take shape!
Loved this book, it was so freaking great, and I can't wait to read more, the next girl, the next "sister"!
