Modern-day fairy-tale princess Taylor Hatfield has problems. One, he’s a guy. Two, he’s an insomniac Sleeping Beauty. Three, his practically perfect brother, Atticus Hatfield, this generation’s Snow White, has been irrevocably corrupted by the Witchking. The Library, a clandestine organization, seeks to write “The End” on Atticus, and Taylor is given the impossible task when his own parents endorse his brother’s demise. With his true love, the huntsman Corentin Devereaux, at his side, they once again set out to find Atticus, but Atticus won’t go down without a fight.
The quest ends how it began. But instead of the quirky, corkscrewing Americana road trip, Taylor and Corentin must contend with the dangers of the urban jungle. With an unexpected ally at their side, they’re forced to question all they know about the legacy of Snow White.
As the world of the Enchants and the mundane hang in the balance, Taylor knows what he must do: go pick an apple.
Urban Fairy Tale was a wonderful conclusion to the Screwed up Princess and the Skillful Huntsman Trilogy. The first five percent had me a little confused, but it quickly became apparent what was going on. From there it is a non-stop roller coaster ride of danger, treachery, humour, and love.
I liked that we didn’t have the relationship drama the last book had. Taylor and Corentin have reached an understanding and the quest ahead is for the breaking of Corentin’s curse and to stop Atticus once and for all.
Once again the world is vibrant and the story book characters imaginative. I did find some of Atticus’s misdeeds to be gorier than I expected. There is a lot of dark in this book. There were times I was on the edge of my seat.
However, I was in good hands and finished the story very happy. I can see future stories in this world and I look forward to them!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
