Pirates and mermaids face off in this fractured-fairy tale sequel to "Half Upon a Time"!
Little mermaids and normal-sized pirates always create the biggest of problems. After the surprise revelations of HALF UPON A TIME, Jack, May and Phillip could use the help of a fairy godmother or two on their search for May's true identity. Only, there might be a snag: The entire Fairy Homelands have been put to sleep by an evil curse, and waking them could be hard. That's only if by hard, you mean escaping from the Land of Never, braving a merman-infested ocean to find a Sea Witch, then fighting alongside the pirate Bluebeard against an army of land-invading sharks with legs, all while trying to outwit one of the Wicked Queen's Eyes who seems to know your every move. So, yeah, a bit hard.
But what fun would an easy fairy tale be?
I recently read the first in the series, Half Upon A Time, and can't wait to see how the story keeps going, as it was one of the best Middle Grade novels I've read, and one of the best fairy tale stories I've read in a long time.
