The Accidental Queen: A Midlife Fairy Tale Book 1 - A Release Day Spoiler Free Review From Melanie
Standalone or series?
Book 1 in a brand new series!
Paranormal Women's Fiction
Official Blurb About The Book (From the Amazon Page)
Sparrow “Ro” Meadowcroft is about to get the promotion she’s always dreamed of – curator of the museum where she works. She loves old things and the history that surrounds them, so when a patron leaves some items to the museum, Ro is eager to dig in.
The sword in the stone that comes with those items is clearly a joke. A well-made but obvious replica meant to be a conversation starter. Why anyone would think that belonged in the museum is beyond her, but she can’t resist taking a crack at it and finding out if she’s the chosen one.
And as it turns out…she is.
How did I get this book?
PA Perks lol
Why did I choose to read this book: I read EVERYTHING Kristen releases!
And Now To The Review!
New series always bring new and exciting possibilities and this one is no exception. A very interesting new take on a very well known tale!
I am constantly impressed with the variety of new ideas that Kristen Painter manages to come up with. This new series is clever, fun, and I feel has a LOT more story to come. Unlike some books in a new series, this manages to get to the paranormal part very quickly, whilst not leaving the reader feeling confused. As you are following along as Sparrow learns the rules and things it makes an engaging story rather than the infodump new series can fall prey to.
If you like any kind of paranormal, but especially this ever emerging Women's Fiction genre this is a must read for you. I'll leave you with my favorite quote, because if that doesn't tempt you to read it nothing will .... "He looked like Prince Charming, if Prince Charming had been an assassin"
An Easy 5 stars from me and definitely Melanie's Muses Approved!
Pineapple word for this article is Sword
