He judges it imperative to get all the females to safety, but first he needs to break the enchantment enslaving his One True Love to her hateful home. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the Ball to get through too.But when the creatures reach them ahead of their expected time, all plans are foregone. Can Ella break her wicked stepmother’s enchantment? Can she save her handsome Prince and the kingdom before midnight strikes? And can she show his soldiers what it really means to kick a monster’s butt? The clock is ticking…Many, many years later…When Ruby visits her grandmother in the deep, dark forest, she stumbles into a nightmare. Her grandma’s been attacked by a wolf-like creature, and an ancient disease that turned people into monsters is back… and so is the cold-hearted ex she walked out on a year ago. Now she has to either accept Jeremy’s help or face becoming a monster herself. Fighting alongside the man she once loved isn’t easy, especially when she discovers there’s more to Jeremy than the cheating bastard she took him for. As they fight to survive the disease and save those they love, can they keep from falling for each other all over again?

    Such a great read! This satisfied both child and adult me, with emphasis on the adult. I mourn the loss of those childhood fairytale reads that give you those first hopes of happily ever afters. It's tough saying goodbye - until you read adult versions.Once Upon A Twist takes you back to a time when fairytales are magical and dreamy, but adds its own kick in more ways than one.Michelle Smart's story in this anthology Glass Slippers and Combat Boots is dark, yet fun and entertaining with a kick-a [...]

    Posted on What I'm ReadingWhen I think of fairytales I automatically think of the Disney endings, because they are happy and cheerful. How many you actually know the real endings of the fairytales that you have come to know and love. Well, I'm not going to spoil that for you, because if you wanted to read the Grimm tales go for it. Really, they are truly not happy endings.Anyways, I just finished Once Upon a Twist (An Anthology) by Aimée Duffy and Michelle Smart. First these twisted fairytales [...]
