Summary from Goodreads: In the magical conclusion to the Storymakers trilogy, which began with Spelled, can Princess Dorthea and Rexi get the land of Story its happy ending? 

While lying in the hospital in a place called Kansas, Princess Dorthea of Emerald struggles to regain her memory of the events that propelled her out of the land of Story—and to remember how to get home.

Meanwhile, in Story, Rexi, with the help of Excalibur, continues to gain confidence in writing her own tale as she fights to save the land from the Wicked Witch. But as is always the case with evil villains, she is not to be underestimated. Can Dorthea and Rexi save their home while protecting the prince they both love from getting caught in the crossfire?


Review: Oh boy! I'm excited to review this next installment in the Storymakers trilogy. As to ms. Schow's form, this book has a great mix of urban fantasy and fairy tale elements that makes her books unique. 

"It's not to the death, it's to the pain." Favorite part. It brings back memories of the Princess Bride. Also one of my favorites. 

At times, I felt a little lost with all the character changes, but that might just be me and the way that I read. I really enjoyed this story and I'm grateful to have received a preview copy.


Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
