Story summary: After having a book each about the adventures of two of the Woodcutter sisters, Sunday and Saturday, we continue down the line (in reverse age order) to Friday. As in "Friday's child is loving and giving". And this is kind of cheating, but I'm going to quote the Goodreads summary, because it's been too long since I've read this and I don't feel like trying to remember the details and summarize it myself:
"When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday’s palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he’s her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday’s unique magic somehow break the spell?"
Sequel to Enchanted and Hero.
Why You Should Read This:
- There are so many fairy tales, all integrated into a big mess of fairy tale goodness.
- There is a large, boisterous family of seven brothers. Great fun. I love large families.
- It's a nice contrast in tone to Hero, the previous book.
- Maybe there are actually too many fairy tales for one book.
- The romance is of the "instant" variety.
- There is not enough Thursday. (Never enough Thursday.)
