The Snow Queen's Shadow (2011)
language
English
series
3.99 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This closes out the series by upping the scale and the stakes, and darkening the plot. With Snow under the Snow Queen's spell, she wreaks havoc on her home kingdom of Alessandria, with Talia and Danielle trying to rescue Danielle's son from her grasp but feeling hopelessly outcl...
Codex Born (2013)

review 1: I enjoyed this book more then the first book. Probably because Lena Goodwood plays a major role in this book. Nobody does dryads as well as Jim Hines. His ability to come up with very unique, but believable takes on dryads is second to none. The dryad Hephra from his Princess s...

review 1: To my friends out there who enjoy fantasy – do not miss this one! Excellent read! Funny, gumshoe style book with a main character who can pull magic out of books. Good, fun, breezy story with plenty of in-jokes for readers, but enough action to entertain even without getting all ...
The Stepsister Scheme (2009)
language
English
series

review 1: It's not art, but it's fun. That's a phrase I've often used to describe books and movies, and it certainly applies to this book. Jim Hines describes one possible tale of what happens after Cinderella and her prince make plans to live happily ever after. It's not what they plan on...
The Mermaid's Madness (2009)
language
English
series
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I didn't finish this fantasy adventure. In the end, I just didn't care about the characters. The adventure seemed interesting enough--why was the queen in a coma, how can we save her? But the main character, a Cinderella-based princess, was flat, boring, and I didn't care much fo...
Dämon, Dämon an der Wand (2012)
language
English
series
3.99 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This was my favorite of the series, and generally I find that most series get weaker as they go along. This one got stronger and it showed in the final book. It is heartbreaking, sad, and it made me cry. But in the end everyone does get there happily ever after. It may not be...
Red Hood's Revenge (2010)
language
English
series
3.92 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This book steps further away from the original fairy tales it is based on, than the previous ones. But this series has grown strong enough that comparisons to the originals don't do it justice anymore, because Hines has created a different most complex and detailed fantasy world....
Drei Engel für Armand : [Roman] (2009)
language
English
series
3.77 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: As with other books by this author, there was something about this book that failed to keep me interested (hence my longer-than-usual reading time). There is definitely a discord between the girl power themes and the kind-of sexist theme of mentioning Snow's rack at least once a...
L'enlèvement du prince Armand (2000)
language
English
series
3.77 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I love fairy tale based stuff, especially if they are done well and aren't too predictable....which can happen, I mean they are basing this off a fairy tale you've heard a million times right? The premise is that 3 princesses end up together, Sleeping Beauty (named Talia), Cinde...
(Ne)Šťastné konce (2010)
language
English
series
3.77 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: It might just be me, but it seems to be a growing cottage industry to rewrite the fairy tales of our youth recently. Of course it isn't like Disney hasn't been doing it for years so I don't really consider it a bad thing, just that the number of them recently does seem to be grow...
Die Fiese Meerjungfrau (2011)
language
English
series
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Yet another in a string of fairy tale retellings, most of them being really well done. This one is no exception. I love what Hines did with this. He seems to dive into not only the originals, but also some of their variations with which most of us might not be so familiar. Al...
La Folie de la Petite Sirène (2011)
language
English
series
3.9 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I enjoyed the version of the Little Mermaid in here. It's one of my favorite fairy tales. I learned the original one before the Disney movie with the happy ending. It's one of the most heartbreaking, and Jim Hines managed to make this one even more so. Getting darker than the...

English
series
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Though it might have something to do with my utter fascination and love for all things mermaids, I loved this book.For as good as the first book in this series was, The Mermaid's Madness was twice as good. I felt the characters were even richer, with them already being establishe...

review 1: In the third installment of the fairytale princesses saga, Talia--Sleeping Beauty--is whisked away to her desert homeland by Roudette, an assassin for hire who also goes by the Lady of the Red Hood. You can see where this is going: yes, Little Red Riding Hood is all grown up and ...

review 1: I continue to enjoy Hines' re-imagining of various fairy tales and his continued world-building. This time, Little Red Riding Hood is the world's most feared assassin! It's also interesting how the author makes sure events in the previous books are cumulative.I did, however, th...

review 1: I was first introduced to Jig the Golbin in "When the Hero Comes Home", to my delight and fear I discovered that Jig had three complete books. The Legend of Jig Drangonslayer is the compilation of Jig's three full length adventures. I am not a big fan of serials, as I find I am o...
