Upon confronting her love-hate relationship with her magic mirror and the demons of her past, she is sent back to the world of happily-ever-after. Her goal: to discover the true meaning of beauty. Her assignment: to work for Marcella, a demanding Princess-In-Waiting.

Will the Evil Queen who had no heart end up with a heart that’s broken?

Wickedly funny, darkly shocking, and deeply moving, DEWITCHED unravels the Snow White story as we know it and will make you see the evil legend in a new light as she rewrites her life.

After a couple failed attempts at killing of Snow White, Jane is thrown in to jail on on trial for attempted murder!

After being found guilty Jane is given a choice between life in the dungeon or a spa like rehabilitation center. Being the Queen that she is Jane thinks that a spa trip is just what she needs! Little does she know her life is going to take a drastic turn.

The Sweet-

I want to start off by saying I found this book by pure accident but Oh My Lanta!! The happy accident lead to me staying up well past my bedtime to read this fairy tale retelling with a twist!

I thought that the author was able to take a well known world of fairy tales and put her own unique and original twist on it! She is able to weave all our favorite villains that we all love to hate in to a world of redemption. She to humanize them all the while keeping the magic alive with in the pages of this book.

We follow our heroin (yes you read right!) as she is on a road of redemption and finding her true self. We watch her grow into a tender loving person who still has the spunk of the Evil Queen. The story is addicting and funny as hell and you will find yourself quickly addicted.

I would recommend this book to any one who loves a good fairytale retelling where the villain gets to tell their side!
