"A sugar-crusted, poison-spiked romp through a vibrant world of fairy tale intrigue, tangled romance, and forbidden magic." --Cassandra Clare

"An explosively rich fairy tale that takes place inside an intricate world that's weaved with fast-paced plot and intriguing twists. Garber continues to show up with lush, atmospheric writing and charming characters that we can't help but want to journey with until their final scene." --BuzzFeed.com

"Garber enchants readers with exquisitely imagined worldbuilding and her trademark heady romance. Evocative prose adds to the tale's dreamlike feel." --Publishers Weekly

"Richly imagined and mysteriously atmospheric . . . This twisty, dreamy tale is perfect for fans of fairy tales and fairy tale retellings alike." --BN.com

"Garber will no doubt have readers flocking to this new series. The potential for the coming installments is huge, as the glimmers of a larger world introduced in this volume are sure to stoke reader curiosity." --Booklist

"A lushly written story with an intriguing heart." --Kirkus Reviews

"A dazzling mix of mystery, romance, and magic." --Karen M. McManus

"Once Upon a Broken Heart confirms that Stephanie Garber is the queen of fairy tales. I stepped into her world and got happily lost in the delicious magic, deceit, and passion." --Mary E. Pearson

"Enchanting, intriguing, and delightfully whimsical, Once Upon a Broken Heart grabbed hold of me and wouldn't let go. Evangeline is a cunning heroine, and Jacks never stopped surprising me. I couldn't put it down." --Brigid Kemmerer

"It's hard not to be enchanted by any tale Stephanie Garber chooses to write, with her masterful storytelling, and her infuriating way of fooling with our pulse rates. A guileless, heartbroken heroine plays with fate incarnate--the bad boy Jacks--in the dreamy, topsy-turvy world of the Magnificent North. Once Upon a Broken Heart casts a spell that you won't soon want to be broken." --Stacey Lee

"Shimmering with magic, Once Upon a Broken Heart is a wondrous story about my favorite thing: kissing. Not only is Jacks the swoony villain you've always dreamed about, but the decadent world will leave you breathless." --Isabel Ibañez

"A wildly imaginative, romantic story where true love and deadly kisses collide and bargains with the Prince of Hearts come with a steep price. Once Upon A Broken Heart is an unputdownable fairy tale where Garber's imagination sparkles like the magnificent North. Readers will delight in each whimsical and thrilling page." --Kerri Maniscalco
