Series: Book 1 of Fables
Why read: Popped up as an Amazon recommendation and looked interesting
What impressed me: I read the synopsis and thought this had possibility. I wasn't prepared for how really good it would be. We all know fairy tales of our childhoods of Disney overload. This is amped up fairy tales for adults. The same characters we all know, but in a whole new way. What happens once the happily-ever-after has past and real life sets in. A murder mystery with more edge than you'd even expect from the likes of Snow White or Jack Sprat.
What disappointed me: Nothing. This really surprised me.
Recommended: Absolutely. It's completely unexpected and familiar all at once.
Continue series: Most definitely.
