Amazing!!
My expectations were quite high for this book after I read "Grounded" (the first book in the Tyme series) and loved it so much. However, "Disenchanted" EXCEEDED my expectations and was almost even better than the first book!! There were cool characters, the worldbuilding is awesome, and the story itself was fast paced and very inspiring!
I can not recommend this enough for fairy tale retelling, fantasy, and adventure lovers. Read it!

Love the heroine! I also love how the book is empowering! This book had a mixed-race leading couple, and we need more books like that.

Another amazing read by the author. Really enjoyed how this focused more on the telling of Prince Charming then on Cinderella like most fairytellings do.

Synopsis in the book:

"Ella Coach has one wish: revolution. Her mother died working in a sweatshop, and Ella wants every laborer in the Blue Kingdom to receive fairer treatment. But to make that happen, she'll need some high-level support...
~
Prince Dash Charming has one wish: evolution. The Charming Curse forced generations of Charming men to lie, cheat, and break hearts -- but with the witch Envearia's death, the curse has ended. Now Dash wants to be a better person, but he doesn't know where to start...
~
Serge can grant any wish -- and has: As an executive fairy godfather, he'd catered to the wildest whims of spoiled brats from the richest, most entitled families in Blue. But now a new name has come up on his list, someone nobody's ever heard of . . . Ella Coach.
~
This is the story of three people who want something better, and who work together to change their worlds. It's 'Cinderella' delightfully reimagined, and a brilliant expansion of the wonderful world of Tyme."
