Lists with This Book. She doesn’t play the role of damsel in distress.

I loved this book. I know she would be proud of my silly, shiny books; I only regret not being able to share them with her in this life.

If you like chimeras, you absolutely must meet Betwixt. I love the fairy-tale aspects in these books and the characters were great!

Hero | Alethea Kontis | Book Review

She was the good sister. They haven’t read it yet. In this second book Woodcutter daughter number six, Saturday, takes center stage after she inadvertently throws a mirror out her window and creates an ocean in her backyard. This means that Peregrine is changed from a duke into someone who looks like a young girl although he keeps his penis, as he tells us early on.

Now I am worried that I might never know what happened to all the family! None of this made herk bad story. I made an assumption Reviewed by: Saturday Woodcutter thinks that she is the only Woodcutter girl without magic.

May 13, Jenna Bookiemoji rated it komtis was amazing. There was I got a copy of this book to review through the Amazon Vine program. No explanation, no reason why he was the only brother to get “stuck”. I don’t think I’ll be reading the next book.


That said, the balance is quite good. I did not enter any of the RWA Chapter contests. She grows a lot in this book and learns about who she is and what her strengths are. The contrast between her and Sunday is eno I approached Hero with low expectations, only because there was no way it could possibly measure up to the genius that is Enchanted. HERO is a gender-bending, swash-buckling tale about Saturday, the second youngest sister to Sunday, whom we previously met in Enchanted.

And yet still, after all that, there will inevitably be one or two mistakes in the finished book. Her adventure is exciting and delightful and also very funny. Friday and Thursday are my favorites, and I was sad that Akethea had already found her pirate “prince charming”. Like, I get it. The plot was a little weaker than in Enchantedwhich may be due to the fact that it focuses so heavily on only two people and one setting.

Naturally, she falls right into an adventure of her own, complete with a cursed prince, a good-natured chimera, and an eyeless witch who’s threatening the world beyond the mountaintop domain where our heroes find themselves trapped. I really enjoy these, hoping the rest of them get published.

And my editor was touched. I just love this series! I hate using cliches, but I felt like I was there.

Dearest by Alethea Kontis

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. In the wake of the disast Alethea Kontis gets better with every book she writes. Humbug seemed weirdly random and unexplained but they weren’t main characters konhis in the other two books.


She’s the type of character that I love to see, but never seen to get a major role in YA books. But even gentle Friday has to admit that her younger sister Saturday made an egregious error when she broke the world and called an ocean to the previously peaceful and landlocked borders of Arilland.

I have no idea what consists of spoilers, so I’ve hidden my review because of some things I mentioned that some people might not enjoy. All this has done is made me hungry for the next book, and the next and the next….

Hero by Alethea Kontis

Saturday is a fabulous protagonist. Her kindness and love towards others made her a character I cared about greatly. Back to the magical world of Alethea Kontis, Hero is the second tale in her Woodcutter series. She’s wonderful with the always entertaining children that follow her like the Pied Piper, and she also has an endearing innocence that blinds her to the ridiculousness of her desire to join the chaste sisterhood she so often labors for.

I think it is based on snow white just without the dwarve’s? It is a fairy-tale, there is going to be a romance.
