Book Cover Revealed: Hero by Althea Kontis
The Woodcutter series #2
Release date: October 1st, 2013
I just absolutely loved Enchanted. The Woodcutter family has seven daughters, each named after a day of the week. Enchanted's main heroine was about Sunday. The rest of the family was heavily weaved into the plot line, though. The second book's main heroine is Saturday! I was hoping for this! This cover is gorgeous, just like Enchanted!
Rough and tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?" As in Enchanted, readers will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.
Althea Kontis is amazing! The fairy tale retelling of Enchanted was based off of the Princess and the Frog, but there are so many references to other fairy tales within the story. If you haven't read the first book yet, I really hope you check it out!
