I really enjoyed reading The Fairytale's Daughter by Carolyn Swanson. The book is very well written and descriptive. I was hooked by the first page and I didn't want to put the book down. The book is a real page turner and will keep the reader on the edge of their seat, wanting to know more. The book is filled with lots of action and suspense, and has many funny parts. The book also has many likeable characters, because they are selfless and brave. It teaches the importance of true love. I found myself laughing out loud, or gasping very loudly. The book is very fast-paced and exciting. I liked how the story had many different stories that all connected. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
