Gr 3-6–Filomena, Jack, Alistair, Beatrice, Byron Bessley, and Gretel have a whole new set of trials before them. Heading for Snow Country to save Never After from the fate of the ogres and King Richard, the group of six knows it’s a race against time before the kingdom is lost to evil. Not only is Never After threatened, but so is Filomena’s adoptive mother’s health in Pasadena. After being sidetracked by the wily Robin Hood, the team arrives at Princess Jeanne’s castle where they learn her crown has been stolen and she can’t be crowned. To add to that, the evil Queen Olga is at it again, turning Prince Charming into a frog and even crossing into the mortal world. On the search for the League of Seven, who can save the kingdom, Filomena and her friends make an unlikely discovery.
VERDICT An engaging third book to the “Never After” series; de la Cruz is sure to delight fans of this fractured fairy tale.
