(The Ever After Chronicles)
Sponsored by Virtual Book Tours

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share my review of this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.

Genre: Dark Fairy tale/Fantasy  (Warning: Extremely Mature Content)
Publisher: Melange Books
Release Date: July 31, 2012

Blurb : 

The world of fairy tales is twisted and corrupted. Two years after her entrapment and torture at the hands of the Seven Deadly Trolls, Snow White now works as an assassin for hire. Rude, crude and with her princess status long revoked, she has become a dark angel for the Ever After's damsels-in-distress.

A game of cat and mouse soon begins when two of the Deadlies, Pride and Wrath, return to exact revenge on the fallen princess for the murder of their brothers.
Armed with her trusty dagger carved from the magic mirror, Snow finds herself drawn into a conspiracy that involves an ancient relic from beyond her world's borders and the destruction of her world.

Taking perversion to a whole new level, NEVER AFTER is an estrogen-filled romp to save the Ever After as Snow slices and dices her way through beloved characters leaving no talking animal safe!

About the Author:

Jason Macumber has been writing since he could first hold a pen, weaving stories so grand his teachers would usually have to pull him back down to earth on more than one occasion. After beginning his writing career in the Young Adult genre, he found that the medium did not suit his more mature tastes and tones that were dying to rip free from the far reaches of his mind. Thus, Snow emerged and became a force to be reckoned and the Ever After Chronicles was born. He is currently living in Florida where he is finishing his graduate degree and punching out the sequel to NEVER AFTER in the company of his three dogs and one mischievous cat.

Book Review:

So my daughter and I loved this story.  My daughter is really in to fan fiction, particularly “dark winning” stories because, after all, who doesn’t love a good villain.  Our favorite Disney movies are “The Princess and the Frog” and “Mulan” where the princess is the one kicking butt and taking names, not just sitting around waiting for her handsome prince to rescue her.  It fits really well with my strong willed daughter’s personality.

            This is more than just a retelling of a fairy tale. This is a complete re-working of the whole fairy tale reality into a darker version.  It is also filled with graphic sexual descriptions and language that is inappropriate for younger readers.  Parents, you will want to read this first to determine is if acceptable for your child.

            I loved the humor and the darkness of this book.  Both were just in the right amounts for me to appreciate both equally.  I give this book 4.5 out of 5 clouds and a chili pepper rating of 7 due to the  graphic nature of the language.
