Alex Flinn is a fantastically, original writer! Her witty take on fairy tales is absolutely breath-taking! I’ve never encountered Alex Flinn's books before, but now I want to devour all of them! Bewitching was a refreshing surprise!
Kendra is enigmatic, courageous, witty, and a wonderful character to read. It is great to get some background information on how she became a witch and what causes her to do the things she does. The historical information mixed in with the fantasy and the fairy tales is deeply original and sets this book apart from everything else in the YA genre.
Bewitching is a great beginning for a new series and it will be hard to wait for the next installment!
Kendra Hilferty is a witch. Yes, a witch and she has been for hundreds of years. She might be known for the inventive curse she put on one beastly teen guy, but there is more to her story. Here, she chronicles her immortal existence, from first discovery of her powers. While always good intentioned, Kendra has found that her bewitching can backfire, and her magic turns versions of The Princess and the Peas The Little Mermaid-set against the real-world backdrops of Versailles and the sinking of the Titanic-on their heads. Kendra's reminiscence of her past are wrapped around a real-time Cinderella story in which she is trying to play fairy godmother...to the stepsisters. With dark twists, hilarious turns, and unexpected endings, BEWITCHING is a contemporary read for fairy-tail lovers, fantasy fans, and anyone looking for more Alex Flinn.
