I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Emily Fluke is a Congenital Heart Defect survivor, and she finds joy and peace through the expression of writing. She is a strong believer that all stories need a little magic and a lot of excitement. Emily and her husband spend their free time wrangling two children and playing video games in their busy California lifestyle. Otherwise, you’ll find Emily solving an escape room, running, or writing Magic the Gathering-based poetry.
“Every story has an origin.”
Mari is back with a new fairytale to discover and another case to investigate. This time, our heroine is struggling with mom guilt, fear her daughter isn’t developing fast enough, and a lack of time. Luckily, Kai can bring peace to Mari’s overthinking, and Scarlet is ready to become more than just the babysitter. This time, Mari is going deep into the archives, which will bring her face to face with her past.
The development throughout this story got stronger and stronger as the plot thickened. We continue to see strong development between the characters, and Scarlet becomes a much bigger player than before.
Mari continues to be anxious, passionate about her note-taking, and constantly doubting herself as a mom. I love how Kai is the immediate calm to her storm. He brings her peace in such a pure way.
I am enjoying Scarlet’s development and watching her become a solid character. The story surrounding her situation is such a well-done past meets future puzzle.
The intensity of this book gets more extreme as the plot races on, and the last several chapters are intense. Seeing everything come together and how the fable plays out is creative in a clever way.
This series is only getting better the deeper we get in the mix. I am looking forward to how things will continue to unfold. I enjoyed the emotional battle and the concept of selflessness throughout this novel.
The next book will be equally intense and filled with another epic adventure that no one would believe.
