Rating: 4


The author of Ella Enchanted is bringing you another tale of magic, mystery, love and beauty in the vein of Snow White (but gnomes instead of dwarves). We've got the scoop on this exciting new novel.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Aza has the voice of an angel but she doesn't have the looks to match. This ugly duckling was taken in by the family who runs the inn where she was abandoned as a baby and spends her days cleaning rooms and avoiding mirrors at all costs. When her vocal talents are discovered by the local queen, Aza's life is turned upside down.

Who is the Fairest of them All?

In a land where singing is as necessary as breathing, the new queen and her squawky voice are heading for disaster. However, the queen is in luck when she meets Aza, who not only has an amazing voice, but also the ability to throw it where ever she want - like a ventriloquist! Aza comes to fall in love with Prince Ijori, but thinks he could never love someone like her. Aza learns that beauty comes with a price when she is presented with an opportunity to change her looks.


Some Day My Prince Will Come

The jig is up when the queen's ruse is discovered - and Aza must run for her life! Along her journey, she discovers the truth about her history, her character and what really matters in life. She even discovers a little about love! Most importantly, Aza comes to realize that she's a strong, courageous and kind person - and there's a lot more to life than being the cutest girl in town.


The Bottom Line

Fairest is a beautifully crafted tale of adventure, magic and personal growth. Not only does it carry an important lesson about the source of real beauty, it also is one heck of a great read. If you liked Ella Enchanted, you'll be swept away by Fairest. It's pure magic.
