Reviews

"Truly outstanding romantic fantasy."

--India Holton on The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy

"An unabashedly offbeat adventure."

--Freya Marske on The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy

"I cried twice and smiled plenty."

--Olivia Atwater on The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy

"A little sweet, a little spicy, a little sharp and entirely moreish!"

--Davinia Evans on The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy

"I showed up for the fantastic, fun fantasy setting but it was Hart and Mercy that kept me reading."

--Ruby Dixon on The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy
"Megan Bannen's writing is deeply adorable and heartbreakingly hilarious. Life is hard. Do yourself a favor and read The Undermining of Twyla and Frank. It's a bear hug of a book full of wonders and pink dragons." --Jayci Lee, author of Nine Tailed and That Prince is Mine
"One of the coziest, most whimsical fantasy reads I've ever come across! Megan Bannen has created a world that you'll never want to leave and characters that will carve a spot into your heart. This series is playfully unique, delightfully steamy, utterly romantic, and overall unmissable!"
--Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis
"Bannen manages to seamlessly blend fantasy, romance, and modern family dynamics, all while making you laugh until you (literally) cry. Not only is it sweet without being saccharine, it's also jam packed with whimsy around the kindest, biggest heart. I love this book so much that I would bury bodies for Twyla and Frank so deep no one would ever find them." --Lish McBride, author of the Uncanny Romance series
"A charming romantasy full of humor and adventure."--Library Journal
"Bannen's witty prose and skillful genre blending shine as she seamlessly weaves together elements of romance, mystery, and adventure. The mature protagonists, particularly the wonderfully complex Twyla, offer a refreshing perspective on love and self-discovery in midlife. Bannen's heartfelt exploration of second chances and the transformative power of friendship resonates. Perfect for fans of T.J. Klune and Alix E. Harrow, this cozy, humor-filled romp celebrates the enduring magic of love at any age."
--Publishers Weekly
"A delightful story worth every minute of your time. Fans of cozy fantasy will find a lot to love here, from glitter-breathing, poodle-esque dragons to a down-to-earth romance between two middle-aged heroes on the brink of retirement. Seriously, the dragons breathe glitter. What more could you want?"
--Kirkus
"Romance, fantasy, and humor blend together in a mature yet whimsically romantic story." --Booklist
