Book Description

Imp, deceiver, villainous mastermind… Rumpelstiltskin’s been called all these names and more, and for the most part, they’re entirely true. But there is more to the brooding, blond haired Adonis than brokering deals for the devil. He’s hiding a terrible, hideous secret. One that threatens to fray the already delicate strands of his sanity and reason. A secret that he’s desperate to make right, to see whole again, and there is no one and nothing that will stand in his way of getting what he wants—no one except a slip of woman with hair like fire and skin like finest porcelain. Something about Shayera Caron calls to the beast inside him and makes him question his motives for the first time in his life.

Shayera Caron is the daughter of the infamous Gerard Caron, former lothario of Kingdom but now a reformed rake and settled husband and father. She can go nowhere in her tiny hamlet without seeing the sneers of women and hearing the murmurings of their disdain for the blood that runs through her veins. Shayera is desperate to get away from the gossiping hens, so when Rumpelstiltskin rides into town, she doesn’t think twice before going wherever he leads. Only thing is Shayera is not as innocent as she might seem, for she hides a secret too. One that will bring the most feared man in all of Kingdom to his knees…

More About the Author

Marie Hall has always held a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires. Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm... Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones.

Then the day came she realized apart from the sexy bad boy she married, there'd be no vampires/shapeshifters/mermaids/fairies/or even stinky trolls in her future unless she wrote about them. More often than not she can be found roaming the wild, lush tropical forest she calls her backyard (a.k.a. Hawaii) and day dreaming constantly about her latest project. Her Mad Hatter is the first book of her Kingdom Series.

The cover to the left is book 1 of my full length: Choas Time Series, release date of January 2013. Though if the Mayan Calendar was right and the world's set to end in December, well... then I hope you enjoy the picture!

Rumpelstiltskin has a reputation, but not one that he's overly keen to uphold at times. Now he needs Shayera Caron to perform tests in order to save somoene he loves, and yet there is a chance that he could end up in an even more complicated situation with her. As a siren, Shayera has tried to stay away from any man that is not a blood relative, yet there's something about Rumpel that draws her to him, even if she isn't too sure whether it is her, or her charms that attracts him to her...

Of all the ways that I saw a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin going, that was not it. Though there are some elements of the original in Rumpel's Prize, most notably the deals, this is a story all of its own and I liked that. Especially because following the normal tales it can be quite difficult to empathise with Rumpel, whereas in Rumpel's Prize made Rumpel not only easy to emphathise with, but likeable.

Rumpel and Shayera's relationship was complicated to say the least. There was attraction there, but for both of them there was something else. They appreciated and enjoyed each other's company and then moped when they didn't see each other. The banter and teasing between them came easily and made their friendship more believable.

I did spend most of the book wondering exactly what was going on. There were hints here and there but until the reader actually has the full picture some of them are hard to make out. I really enjoyed the not knowing, and not knowing how it would work out for the characters.

Rumpel's Prize was a great next installement in Kingdom, I am looking forward to more!

I have loved this entire series. It was a proper grow-up fairytale. Thought no.7 was a bit iffy but Rumpel's story had me back on track.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm sleep deprived! 2 Nov. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read once I'm in bed, with kids sleeping so they can't interrupt... and once again Marie kept me reading until I fell asleep and dropped my kindle off the edge of the bed. And then I got up the next morning, all bleary eyed with tiredness, and I couldn't wait to get back to bed... not to sleep I hasten to add... I needed to read on. I read on til I finished it on the second night. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
