“A fabulous fairy-tale mashup that deserves hordes of avid readers. Absolutely delectable.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review of award-winning series debut Enchanted

Readers met the Woodcutter sisters (named after the days of the week) in Enchanted and Hero. In this delightful third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday’s palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he’s her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday’s unique magic somehow break the spell?

My Review
4/5
To start with I LOVED this cover. It was just so beautiful. This book is the 3rd in the Woodcutter Sisters series. I did not know this was the 3rd book but it really did not affect my reading experience. I do want to go back and read the first 2 because I think I will enjoy the story so much more.
Anyway this story is about the Woodcutter sister Friday. She is very sweet and loving person. She loves many and does not complain. She comes upon a very strange situation at her sisters palace. 7 brothers that are cursed to be swans by day. She knows that she is supposed to be with Tristan but that will not happen unless she can break this spell.
I just loved how this story started. It was so magical. I really loved just everything about this book!
