    I can't say that my reason for wanting this book will be any different or better than others, but the reason I would like to have this book is to read it. National Geographic books are some of my favorites, mostly because of all the facts that I can fill my brain with. Thank you anyways!

    51k-3zd3ycl._sl160_This book was awesome. It was the perfect mash-up of fairy-tales and modern day. Similar to: The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley, The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer, and Half Upon a Time by John Riley. The perfect mix of comedy and action, this book is a must read.

    happypug12's book review was featured in Of Giants and Ice (Ever Afters).
    51k-3zd3ycl._sl160_I just read this book for the second time and it was even sweeter than the first time (mostly because I actually understood everything for the first time in forever). I don't usually read books twice but this book was special because it was one of my absolute top favorite book series PLUS this summer I'm planning on re-reading my favorite book series. AHEM and I also got the fourth book of this series BUT I read one page and I had forgotten who and what all the characters were so I'm just re-starting from the beginning. I don't regret my decision one bit, because the second I opened this book, Rory's life became as real as my own. She's such a relatable character who is very unlike some of the perfect characters in stories these days. You can actually connect with her and feel her embarrassment, anger, happiness, and you just have to laugh out loud when she snaps a witty comment back at Chase. I WOULD make a critique about how she believed in magic so seemingly quickly, but, hey, I guess being chased by a fire-breathing dragon, escaping giants with bug-spray, and almost dying by falling from a magic beanstalk will do that to ya. I will never understand why this isn't a New York Times bestseller, and I recommend this to ANYONE who loves adventure, fantasy, and all those other genres and such. Better end this review now before it turns into one of those monster reviews so long that nobody actually reads anything but the first sentence. Anyways, this book was amazing in every way and you should probably read it if you want a cool story in your life.
