Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway -- Twisted Tales Trilogy by Stephanie Fowers

With A Kiss by Stephanie Fowers

Series: Twisted Tales, #1
Publication: April 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal (Faeries)

With a Kiss is on sale on Amazon for a limited time: $0.99, click link below to buy :)


There are seven rules of the faery kingdom that Halley Starr must never break:

1. No trespassing sacred faery territory
2. Don't ever say thank you
3. Using a faery’s given name is a no-no
4. Never break a promise to a faery
5. Faery music is forbidden
6. Resist all faery food
7. And never, never fall in love with a faery

But Halley is cursed. Yeah. No joke. She can barely survive Omak High with that shard of ice in her heart. How could she possibly be a proper godmother and stop Rumpelstiltskin from taking the heir of the faery kingdom? And let’s be honest, there is no way she’ll go with Goldilocks (some hot faery guy) who won’t bother telling Halley his name or that she looks like she’s talking to herself when he’s around. Not a chance.

And really, who can blame her?

If Halley wants her heart back again, she can’t worry about the rules…

With a Kiss by Stephanie Fowers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Background: Halley Starr has never been a normal teenage girl, she was a very sick child and her parents were never sure what was wrong. Now at seventeen she is beginning to learn a little more about her strange past, a curse that was put on her, and about faeries and how real they really are. Now she must find a way to un-curse herself and figure out what to do with a baby that has been left in her possession by these faeries.

Review: This book is the first in a trilogy called Twisted Tales, and it was very twisted. Halley is an interesting character to follow and sometimes comes off as a little whiney and immature, but overall she was a good lead.

The book begins with and continues with an action packed plot. Halley trying not to believe herself really crazy, faeries showing up...it was a lot to take on so quickly, in the first few chapters of the book. Halley's character grows later in the story, I did not feel a connection with her in the beginning but she began to grow on me.

I am normally a fan of books about faeries and the faerie realm and this was no exception to that, it was an enjoyable, quick read, that kept me reading with its fun quirkiness and adventurous plot.

At Midnight by Stephanie Fowers

Series: Twisted Tales, #2
Publication: April 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal (Faeries)


Stop the clock from striking twelve

Who is Bridgette anyway?

1. Loser of Omak High
2. Girl who rubs her fingers raw working fast food
3. Victim of the evil stepmother who runs the group home
4. Not-so-proud owner of a hearth where fire-starting goblins live
5. Asylum wannabe with occasional schizophrenic episodes

Not even Bridgette knows. Not that she can do anything about it. Besides, her godmother is supposed to save her, not the other way around! But Halley Starr is a little busy fighting Rumpelstiltskin flunkies and his beanstalk, so her godmother sends some rude faery guy to help Bridgette instead. It’s up to him to make sure she gets that true love’s kiss that will undo the banishment curse, except he seriously knows nothing about love or faery hunters, red riding hood, spindles…or high school!

Excuse me?

Even if he did, how is Bridgette supposed to find true love if everyone she loves disappears?

As the Sun Sets by Stephanie Fowers

Series: Twisted Tales, #3
Publication: April 2013 

Genre: YA Paranormal (Faeries)



Will it be happily ever after or the end?
Daphne’s sister and stepsister are in big BIG trouble!

1. It’s the third and final day
2. Rumpelstiltskin plans to suck their powers dry

3. The queen wants them dead 
4. The wolves switched sides 
5. The world is about to end 
6. And did they seriously expect to keep this all from Daphne? 

Oh yeah, A LOT of trouble! Daphne Starr pricks her finger on a spindle and it awakens the power that was always within her. That’s a big time no no! Now Rumpelstiltskin and some evil queen are after her. Even more annoying, the biggest player at Omak High is a shapeshifter and he goes beast on her, dragging her into a beanstalk and getting them stuck in a time-warp. He won’t stop asking her to marry him to get to her powers. I mean, give up already! Sure, it’s cool when she scores matching boots with the weirdo cat, and some cute faery guy accidentally tags along for the ride, but…

Enough is enough already!

Halley and Bridgette had better get her out of this—especially since she only has until the battery runs out of her cell phone before she loses…to a beast.

  1. Hi Stephanie, thank you for your review. I sure appreciate you reading my book and hosting me on your site. Also pardon my stalking, but your roommates sound like loads of fun, especially the two bearded dragons. I'm dying to hear the story behind that :-)

    1. Hi Stephanie! Thanks for the opportunity to read your book!...now worries on the stalking :)... I do have a lot of animals, our dog has been with us for about 5 years, our cat we rescued from a pile of trash during a really bad flooding rainstorm about 3 years ago, and the beardies we just got a few months ago. They are still juvenile, so about 12 inches from nose to end of tail, but there are 2 a girl and a boy so we have 2 massive tanks in the condo. My husband likes to call it my zoo.
