Book Review: Twelve Days of Faery

Summary: In Twelve Days Of Faery, King Markon of Montalier is at the end of his tether. His son, Prince Parrin, is afflicted with a rather nasty curse that slaughters, maims, or brutally attacks any woman with whom he so much as flirts. After the rumour that sweeps around the kingdom, promising that any woman breaking the ‘curse’ will be eligible to marry the prince, there is no shortage of willing volunteers. Unfortunately, there is also no shortage of bodies piling up.
   Markon needs to do something, but what? Can a visiting enchantress from Avernse help, or is she simply another accident waiting to happen? And will Markon be able to give her up to his son if she does break the curse?
  Twelve Days of Faery is the first novella in the Shards Of A Broken Sword novella trilogy.

Thoughts: This was one of the most unique modern fairytales I've read in awhile! Mary Poppins sleuthing around the castle for signs from Faery...all to stop a prince's mysterious curse! Peppered with fun and intriguing characters and with a wonderful plot that takes the reader back to the time when faeries weren't something to be trifled with. Overall this is a splendid short read for fairytale fans alike and an amazing new story with a wonderfully old sort of feel!
(I was provided with a free book in exchange for my honest opinion)

Content: While mostly clean, this books borderlines a few possibly offensive scenes. First off, there's (MINOR SPOILER) a bit of confusion as to whether or not the heroine will marry a father or his son, which was a little awkward at times. Then there was an expected, but semi-surprised kiss; a serious flirt without a shirt(his scene made me really uncomfortable but nothing happened so it's still clean!), and certain talks which parents might be uncomfortable with. Otherwise, this book is clean and a fun read!
