BANISHED – Betsy Schow (out now!)
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
I’ve loved the Storymakers series since SPELLED. Princess Dorthea of Emerald is a great lead for this retelling and her feisty sidekick Rexi. This book picks up where WANTED left off – so for those who haven’t read the rest of the series I would highly recommend picking up books one and two!
I don’t want to go into too much detail and spoil the other books for new readers. If you love the retelling genre then you’d really enjoy this series. It makes fun of the typical fairytale cliches and tropes while keeping it adventurous with some darkness. We have the Wicked Witch, Princess Dorthea of Emerald (Wizard of Oz vibes, anyone?) and we get to meet other familiar characters throughout the series.
Overall, if this is a genre that you enjoy reading and want a new series to start, then I highly recommend starting with SPELLED and working your way to BANISHED. I would love to know more about the Storymakers’ universe, so I hope Betsy Schow continues it!
What are some books you’ve won from giveaways that you loved?
