"A wonderful mix-up of fairy-tale tropes, a clever love story, and a delightful tale all on its own!"--Tamora Pierce

"A charming tumble of fairy tales, spiced with humor and sprinkled with true love." --Sharon Shinn, best-selling author of the Samaria series

"If Neil Gaiman and the Brothers Grimm had a child who grew up to weave fairy tales, she would be Alethea Kontis. Read this book--it's an absolute winner."--J.T. Ellison, best-selling author of Where All the Dead Lie

"As mischievous as a garden full of fairies and twice as clever, Enchanted proves there's more than life left in the oldest genre in the world--there's a lot of heart, too." --Sean Williams, New York Times best-selling author

"Kontis is a born spell-caster and her work is spellbinding. In the style of great fairy tales, Kontis has created a delightful, heartfelt new classic that can charm the sun out from behind the clouds." --Leanna Renee Hieber, author of the Strangely Beautiful and Magic Most Foul series

"Alethea Kontis's debut is full of inventive whimsy. Take your favorite fairytale and spin it to the side, throw in a half-dozen other tales all dancing, and you get this Enchanted ball."--Mary Robinette Kowal, award-winning author of Shades of Milk and Honey

"It's the relaxed humor of Kontis' presentation that not only ups the realism of characters unfazed by talking frogs and fey characters but also gives this offering its sweet, distinctive stamp."--Booklist
