Summary from Goodreads: From princesses and princes, to witches, ice queens, imaginary friends, and dorks, Happily Ever After: The Write More Publications Fractured Fairy Tale Anthology has it all! Seven unforgettable stories by seven talented authors! Some stories are fractured takes on classics, while others are originals that will stay with you long after you've turned the last page!  Featured Authors: Dana Piazzi, Jordan Hancock, Kim Stevens, Elaine White, Vanessa Hancock, Michelle Feury, and Stephanie Parke

     My Review: Happily Ever After is a fun anthology that is suited for lovers of fairytales. This anthology ranges from medieval to contemporary fairytales. These short stories have a different take to the fairytales that we know and love and there are a few original stories. Each of them end in a happy feel good way that will leave you gushing with happiness.


     One thing that I like about these stories is that they take these fairytale princesses and make them stronger. They are not the classic fairytale princesses who are damsels in distress. Instead, they can take care of themselves. They are smart and observant. Each of them are determined to make their own happiness and dreams come true. The heroines grow very confident and learn to rely on themselves. Therefore, I liked how these authors have portrayed these characters.

     Overall, this anthology gives us a twist on our favorite fairy tales. There were some stories that I did not like as well because I did not like their twist on a few of my favorite fairy tales, I did enjoy them all and found them entertaining. While I did not necessarily like the story, I did find them all very well-written. This anthology is filled with romance, adventure, humor, and action. My favorite stories in this anthology were “Blue Bird” by Kim Stevens, “The Legend of the Ember Bark Tree”, “Frost Bite” by Stephanie Parke. While each of these stories are different, they each end happily. This was also a very quick and easy read, and I believe that they are perfect for a bedtime story. I recommend this book for fantasy, romance, and fairytale lovers. Therefore, I suggest that you grab of cup of coffee and read this book. I promise that you will not regret it.
