Hero by Alethea Kontis will be released next week. Kontis wrote one of the most popular fairy tale themed novels published in 2012, Enchanted (The Woodcutter Sisters). Hero is the second book in the Woodcutter series and will be followed next October by the third book, Beloved. So if you are a fan, you have more to read and anticipate very soon!
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.
