All spell is about to break loose in this madcap fairy tale mash-up
Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.
Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks--like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.
Talk about unhappily ever after.
Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called “Kansas.” Now it’s up to Dorthea and her pixed off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse…before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.
“This wickedly funny, fast-paced adventure has it all: brains, courage, and heart. (Plus a kickin’ pair of heels.) .” --Jen Calonita, author of The Secrets of My Hollywood Life and Fairy Tale Reform School series
“If you love the Wizard of Oz, clever fairy tale mash-ups, and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end, you MUST read Spelled.” –J. Scott Savage, award winning author of Farworld, Case File 13, and the Mysteries of Cove.
"The writing is clever and funny, and I like how it draws on multiple fairy tale strands." --Valerie Welbourn, The Fountainhead Bookstore (Hendersonville, NC)
hilarious and snarky reimagining of the world of Oz, along with many other
fairy tales injected throughout, "Spelled" is one fabulous read!
Dorthea is a spoiled princess, but once she goes on her journey, boy does she
get as much as she gives! The result is laugh-out-loud a la Christopher Moore
style (with more PG-13 subject matter). The characters Dorthea and her party
meet along the way are just as fun and the adventure is engaging as well. What
are you waiting for? Kick off those silver slippers and tuck in with this
wonderful tale!” —Senator Sipes, Lil Book Bug
