Tempest Fury by Alicia Michaels

A young adult retelling of the story of Hansel and Gretel. This fairytale adaptation tackles bullying issues, friendship, and family. Not to mention the edge-of-your-seat action and ... dragons! 

Gretchen Thomas isn’t exactly princess material. She’s not thin, perky, graceful, or refined. So, when a mysterious man claiming to be from another world appears, telling her that she’s royalty, her first instinct is to laugh in his face. However, his assertion that she’s from this strange parallel realm rings true—especially given the freakish abilities she’s had since childhood. 

Yet, with that knowledge comes a set of expectations Gretchen isn’t sure she can live up to. With an entire kingdom relying on her to fight for them against an evil queen, and a long lost family hoping to reunite with her, being a princess doesn’t seem like all it’s cracked up to be. One thing is for sure; when the war between good and evil spills over from one realm into another, disrupting her life and threatening the brother who raised her, Gretchen will not hesitate to unleash the powerful storm brewing inside of her. 

My Review:

This is series has been amazing right from Book 1 and I have been waiting to see who was going to be the next princess to be found.  Gretchen is not your typical princess (or at least the ones that are depicted these days). She’s the total opposite.  However when things change for her and she embraces who she is, she is a force to wrecken with and the enemy will have no idea what they have coming at them!  

The story is well written and the author does a fantastic job at describing the characters and their surroundings.  I am not so patiently waiting for the next book in the series !
