An Unfortunate Fairy Tale #2

Reviewed by Melanie on March 20, 2017


Like UnEnchanted, Fairest was another book that I listened to constantly. The story begins a couple months after UnEnchanted, with Mina starting her newest Grimm quest.

As in UnEnchanted, Mina isn’t sure where to turn when she loses her grimoire and doesn’t know where to find it. The rules of the story continually change, and without Jared, Mina struggles through her latest tale.

Overall it was a good book, but with the bar set so high in the first book, I was a bit disappointed by Mina’s attitude.

Rather than being ready to face The Story head, on yet again she is reluctant, even though she knows that completing the tales, or die trying, is the only way to break the curse.

When Mina’s bad attitude and jealousy almost causes Nan to lose her life, Mina finally begins to fight to finish The Story.

After the first book, and learning about the curse you would think that Mina would be ready to do all she can to finish The Story and get on with her life. Her constant feet dragging knocks her down my favorite characters, bringing Jared to the top of my list. I want to finish the series but hope that with being a bit disappointed by this book that the third pulls me back in again.

Description from GoodReads.

Mina Grime discovers that all is not fair when it comes to the Fae and their tales, especially when they don't all play by the rules. Barely surviving the Story's first fairy tale quest, Mina still has hundreds to go before she can end the curse on her family. But a new player arises to challenge Mina while new rules revamp the game she has just barely begun to understand. All the while, people are mysteriously disappearing, including Jared, whom Mina must finally determine to be friend or foe. And with the loss of her greatest weapon, Mina must try to outwit a lethal hunter. Can Mina survive the most difficult quest yet while protecting those she loves from falling victim to one of the deadliest tales of all? Or will she become a pawn when she strikes a bargain with the Queen of Fae?
