Un final atipico. Like the first, this book deserves six stars for creativeness. The stories are gripping with just the ri Warning The stories are gripping with just the right amount of mystery, and I love the fairy tale tie ins! Especially as the story moves along, it's great to see where everything fit in! I was actually really shocked to see how many people are rooting for Jared.
To be honest, I didn't even think of a love connection there. I always thought of him as a friend, who happens to be good looking - and really mysterious at times. For me, the real love story has always been with Brody. Although the first book was heartbreaking, and this was equally so, the connection that Mina and Brody have is strong.
Their connection worked its way back into this book, even though he didn't remember any of the previous happenings. I definitely could have used more of the two of them. Personally, I'm praying for Mina to finally get her happily ever after with him.
And again, I get it's an unenchanted story series,but she's such a likable character, I will be devastated if in the end of the series she doesn't end up with Brody I read there's a third book coming out sometime later this year and I'm on edge of my seat waiting for it!!

The writer keeps things moving quickly without making the reader feel "pushed" through the story and without leaving the reader feeling like they've missed out on important pieces of the story.
You can instantly identify with the characters and their feelings. You understand why they make the choices they make and why they say the things they say and don't say. There are just enough funny moments in the story, but it isn't so much that you feel like you're watching a parody. There are twists and turns, but not to worry It's well written and easy to read, but not in a way that makes the older readers feel like our hands are being held. After reading both novels, I went to the authors web site and found out she does NOT use an editor!

Thank you Mrs. This is an incredible gift to book readers! You've given us an amazing book series that is well written, east to read and marvelously fun all at a bargain price!
I can't wait to read what you have in store for us next! What I liked: I actually like the idea of him and Mina being together, and I could tell Jared really cared about helping Mina. I liked the more in depth look at the good fae, like Ever and Jared, but I think we still need a bit more world building to r What I liked: I liked the more in depth look at the good fae, like Ever and Jared, but I think we still need a bit more world building to really get a sense of things.
What I disliked: She annoyed the hell out of me in this book. She seemed like as much of a moody brat as Mina—the definitely deserve one another as best friends. And I hated the little twist at the end. Nan and Brody are soul mates or whatever? At least now the third book will hopefully have less romantic sap in it. The main thing I loved about the first book was the originality of it, with the addition of the fairytale element, and both of those things were missing from this book.
It got turned into nothing more than a cheesy romance with a bit of action here and there. I paid three dollars for this book—which is quite a bit for a self-published book—and not only was it not as satisfying as the first book, it was also way shorter.
I think the price definitely needs to be lowered. Overall, this book was not nearly as good as the first in the series. For the most part, it was just alright. There was nothing special about it. It was too short and more of a transitional book.
The bad unfortunately outweighed the good. Hopefully the next one will be better. Jan 11, Brittany rated it liked it.

It frustrated me to no end Mina kept pining over Brody. I adore her reason for going through the Story is to protect her brother. But no. That would of course be the logical thing to do. Because she was jealous of her. Some best friend.
But I do commend her for getting her act together later to save everyone. And as for Nan and Brody being each others true love, serves Mina right for hurting her friend. Stupid girl. I actually don't mind Mina that much.

She is somewhat mercurial, but I enjoy that in my protagonist. She was pretty well developed, although I attributed some of her character flaws to the author trying to make her like an average teenager. The author honestly should have spent more time developing each character because most are pretty flat or stereotypical. Except for Jared.
Fairest by Chanda Hahn (2012, Paperback)
Although I may be biased because I have a thing for bad boys with an attitude hiding a heart of gold. Oh well.
The writing in this novel was an improvement from the first one. There were fewer grammatical errors this go round, which made me a happy reader.
Granted there were some time jumps or moments where it took me a minute to realize what was happening because the setting or time changed without transition. Over-all, Fairest was a feel good type of read. I am enjoying the series other than the occasional frustration from character stupidity. I am looking forward to the third book and am crossing my fingers Brody will no longer be a love interest.
We shall see. Mar 24, Nisha rated it liked it Shelves: I really wanted l like this sequel. But I found a few things irritated me and others too, it seems from reading other reviews.
My biggest point of contention is that the story lurched from one plot to another as if Hahn had in each case just remembered to tie up a loose end or plot hole. I found that this made the fairy tale part hard to follow as the love lives of the characters took a front seat and the fairy tale, the back seat. Now I usually happen to like the romance aspect of any YA novel, I really wanted l like this sequel. Now I usually happen to like the romance aspect of any YA novel, but I also specifically liked the modern fairy tale premise of this series and it all but disappeared in this book, until the last few chapters.
Now onto the characters. Jared's character seemed to have a little more depth that the other one-dimensioned characters - I mean Robert's entire purpose seemed to be to go all 'overprotective, you can't talk to my daughter-in-law' to Mina once every few chapters.
Also daughter-in-law? What happened to good old fashioned 'stepdaughter'? Nan and Brody being soulmates just seemed to me like a convenient tying up of the characters in order to get Brody out the way for Jared and Mina to develop. Now, I much much prefer the Jared and Mina coupling, it's just that the Nan and Brody thing seemed a bit abrupt, especially as Brody being Mina's love interest has been made a huge deal of in the two books.
Also, I just couldn't understand the logic behind Brody being Nan's 'one true love' as she has never shown an interest in the guy beyond giving him a 12 on the hot scale and constantly pushing Mina in his direction and vice versa Jul 17, CalypK rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Amantes de los retellings.

Overall this wasn't a bad book. I was a little bummed that it didn't focus on more fairy tales like they did in the first book. They really only covered a part late in the book. The one thing that really bugged me was that her best friends true love ended up being the guy that Mina really liked. Even though I'm pretty sure that the author is leading us up to Mina being with Jared I still think that it's crappy. I guess I'm just tried of crappy "best friends" acting like this and not caring.
Hope Overall this wasn't a bad book. Hopefully in book 3 we will focus more on fairy tales rather than personal lives. Aug 25, Tiffany rated it really liked it Shelves: Fairytales, and princes, and Fae OH MY!
Mar 17, Laura rated it liked it. I was a bit let down by this book. I quite enjoyed the first one, but in this one Mina is pretty whiney, and goes around feeling sorry for herself. Also, some editing was needed. Sep 01, Elizabeth Elzburg rated it really liked it Shelves: This one was always my favourite of the three I read when I first read these way back in the day.
It was a huge improvement on the first one because it was edited a lot better still lots of editing errors and it has more JARED!!!!!!!! Fricken love him. This book has a lot of cute Jared moments that I loved years ago, and that I still love now. Fuck, my ovaries are gone in a fiery explosion.
Mina touched his cheek with his hand and wiped away a stray tear. Once they were on the stairs, she realized that she was still holding hands with him. She tried to pull away, but Jared held onto her hand firmly. Jared wants it. Back at school, Mina is still devastated about the loss of her relationship with Brody and still remains stand-offish towards Jared who is rarely nice to her.
One day after school, Jared tells her that they need to talk. While in the car, Mina finally tells him how she feels. During the ride, she falls asleep and when she wakes up she realizes that she has gone way past her stop. When she tries to get the bus driver to stop, she sees his true Fae form—an Ogre. She escapes from the bus and is chased into the woods.
She slips down a steep embankment and nearly falls into the cold river running under her. Instead of chasing her, the Ogre tries to help her up. When she sees him, the Ogre slowly starts transforming into Jared. Mina falls and is closely followed by Jared. Both are unhurt, but now lost in the woods. As they are making their way out of the woods, Mina finally gets Jared to reveal more about himself and the Grimoire.
She learns that something big is about to happen. She also starts to develop real feelings towards Jared who is not as rude out here as he is in school. At one point, Jared in his Ogre form saves Mina from a bear.
Jared disappears and Mina is left to wander through the rest of the woods until she finds the path. As she is making her way along, she stumbles and sprains her ankle.
Barely able to walk, she finally see a car approaching and flags it down. She falls into the road right in its path and the car loses control. As it is about to slam into her, a tree is pushed down and stops the car. A man named Karl comes and picks Mina out of the brush and asks her name. Mina gets a strong feeling to lie and uses the name of her friend, Nan. She comes to a couple of times to see sirens and bright lights.
When she finally wakes up fully two days later, she is in the hospital. Unfortunately, she has also lost the Grimoire. Everything is normal for a little while upon leaving the hospital but Jared is still missing.
