Product Description

A young prince crippled by a witch—

When Fredrico watches his cruel family mourn his false death and announce to the kingdom their cursed prince has died, is the day he truly embraces his new life and new name Rumplestiltskin. How could he be known by anything else? —His skin is completely rumpled and stilted now. He hides away from the king and queen and grows up as a
crippled servant in the castle.

Years later, his younger brother, Marcus, becomes king and humors Aubrynn’s father when he boasts that his daughter can turn straw into gold. Intrigued Marcus locks the distraught maiden in a tower and declares to the kingdom that if she can transform the straw, he will
marry her, but if she cannot he will kill her father.

Rumplestiltskin is determined to help Aubrynn save her father and marry the king. Now, if only he can remember to keep his real identity a secret and not fall in love with her himself…

5.0 out of 5 stars A dreamy read - magic 30 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It was an easy read and transformed an old tale into a book that any teenage girl or woman would be happy to lose themselves in.
I love the "happily ever after" stories - they are never a disappointment.
The only irritation I felt whilst reading this book was over the repetitive nature the author had towards explaining the characters emotions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rumplestiltskin (Faerie Tale Collection) 9 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is Rumplestiltskin but with a slight twist running through the backbone of the story. Its different but likeable and still has the happy ending. There are a collection of these Faerie tales and I have read two so far and I am enjoying them.

For young adults/ teens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 15 Feb. 2013
By oirwin
Format:Kindle Edition
Jenni James' faerie tale collection is a stunning take on the usual tales. However, her stories have a uniqueness in that they are all so beautiful and well written, that you fall in love with them immediately.
Rumplestiltskin is a touching take on the old, and every chapter is a joy to read. This book draws you into its hold and grips tightly, for it had all the elements of a classic; love, hope and magic, are shown to their fullest against a backdrop of pain and suffering. Get this book and you will love it as much as I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good story 5 Feb. 2013
By Jennifer Erwin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I really liked this book from Jenni James. I admit to downloading her book "Beauty & the Beast" because it was a freebie, and I love fairy tales, but the book just pulled me in. Her writing style is excellent, and it had enough drama and action to hold my attention. I couldn't believe how in love with a YA fairy tale book I was. So when she offered up Rumplestiltskin for people to review, I jumped at the chance. I wanted to see if it was a one time fluke or if it would hold my attention just as the other one did. It did, and then some. I loved this book! I found myself pulling for Rumplestiltskin. While this is classified as a YA book, I, in my 30's, loved it. The pacing flowed, and I couldn't put this book down. I thoroughly enjoy her take on the fairy tale genre and I look forward to more books from her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rumplestiltskin may just become your new favorite romantic hero!! 10 Feb. 2013
By Catherine Steiner - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
WARNING!!! This review contains spoilers!!!

If you were to poll 100 women of various ages and asked who is the
greatest romantic hero you would get nods to Austen (Darcy, Captain
Wentworth), Shakespeare (Romeo), and Mitchell (Rhett Butler);
depending on the ages polled you might even get a Meyer (Edward or
Jacob) or Jack Dawson of Titanic fame and of course you'd probably get
a few Prince Charming's. What I can say with 100% accuracy is you
would not get one Rumplestiltskin, that is unless you have read Jenni
James's version, "Rumplestiltskin (Faerie Tale Collection)". What
James has done is turned a classic fairy tale on its ear and gives us
a hero that we not only root for but can hold our head high and
proclaim, "Rumple is my new favorite romantic hero of all time". Ok,
so maybe you would leave off the "of all time" part but you can not
help but fall in love with this man. The story starts off with 5 year
old Royal Majesty Frederico Baldrich Layton sneaking away from his
nurse to the pond he thinks is magic because he had to leave his
"magic stones" there the day before. With her being distracted he is
off on a dead run and the pace of the story is also. He is met there
by a witch who thinks the royal family are pure evil and decides to
use Frederico to teach them a lesson. She curses the boy child causing
his poor body to be twisted, bent and crippled and scarred his skin.
When he hobbles back to his nurse, he is immediately shunned by his
nurse and family because they think they will be cursed as well. The
only one brave enough to take him back to her quarters and clean him
up as best as she can is a kind and loving young maidservant named
Tilly. The rest of the kingdom is told Frederico died a tragic death
and every year they have a celebration of his life. He has been
banished to a little forgotten corner of the castle. His brother is
the new heir. He and his mother know Frederico is still about
somewhere but he stays out of everyone's way so they do not push it
but instead use his "death" to their own good. Fast forward 18 years
and Frederico has been lovingly nicknamed Rumplestiltskin by Tilly. He
is more sickened by the yearly commemoration because Tilly has died
and he feels alone and abandoned. His brother is a cruel and horrible
king. This year there is a drunken man who claims his daughter,
Aubrynn, can spin straw into gold. She is brought forth to the greedy
king. She is beautiful and he claims that if she can indeed spin straw
into gold she will be his wife. She is not taken in by the idea of
being queen nor of the attention of the king. She is taken to a tower
filled with straw and a spindle and told that if she does not fulfill
her task both she and her father will be killed. She is in tears. She
has no ability to do what is asked of her. Rumple is horrified at her
predicament and is determined to try to help her. He still has his
magic stones and hopes with all his heart they truly are magic. In her
despair Rumple comes to help her. Here is where we truly get to see
this hero and glimpse not only his character but his humor by telling
Aubrynn he is a magical being. As he helps her they begin to fall in
love, laughing and working together. She ceases to see his scars and
twisted body and he is enchanted by her sweet personality. If all this
hasn't hooked you yet, know that Rumple does help her spin straw into
gold to appease the greedy king and save her life but it is not
enough-it never is with these greedy guys is it? What twist will the
king throw at the young couple? How will they overcome it? Will Rumple
ever cease to be "rumply"? Will all live happily ever after?

I can honestly say that Rumple is just so adorable that I am totally
besotted with him!! I enjoyed this story completely and had actually
read it twice before being asked to write a review for it!! I think
you will love it too and can recommend it whole-heartedly...clean,
funny, sweet, tender, and just the right mix of romance this is a
great read for all ages!!! Cathy Steiner

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly Orginal! 5 Feb. 2013
By Heather Moore - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
No one is more surprised than village girl, Aubrynn, when her father announces to King Marcus that his daughter can spin straw into gold. But Aubrynn is too petrified of the cruel king to tell the truth and before she knows it she's locked into a tower room with a spindle and pile of straw. When a strange, crippled man appears in the tower room as if by magic, the last thing Aubrynn expects is to fall in love.

A very creative interpretation of Rumplestiltskin! Author Jenni James creates a fast-pace story of great fun that will keep you guessing on what will happen with Rumple and Aubrynn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing! 7 Feb. 2013
By Melanie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
What a fun, quick read! I've never really enjoyed this particular fairy tale but I love the refreshing direction this story takes.

Prince Frederico is 5 years old when he runs away from Nurse Crabtree and heads off to the pond by himself to collect some strange rocks. While there, an old woman steps out of the bushes and, when she finds out who he is, she puts a curse on him. She tells him his family is evil and must be taught a lesson through the young boy. He's confused and as he heads back to his nurse, he realizes his body is hurting and crippled. His looks freak everyone out and he is taken back to the castle where a young maid named Tilly takes care of him once she's over her initial shock at his appearance.

Fast forward 18 years and we find out that his family was so ashamed of him all those years ago that they told everyone he was dead and buried a box of his old clothes and dirt. Every year, the villagers were required to mourn his death (and pay their taxes) on the anniversary of his "death." Meanwhile, Rumple lives in the cellar under the kitchen and tries to stay out of his family's way. His father has died and his brother, Marcus, is now the king and is not a kind man. Tilly died last year so he's feeling lonely this year.

Aubrynn Sloat is a villager preparing to attend the commencement of Prince Frederico's death. Her father, a drunk, is missing and she hurries to the castle by herself. When King Marcus stands up to deliver his speech, she notices a disturbance and a man is called up to the podium. It turns out to be her father and he tells the King that his daughter can turn straw into gold. She's called to the front and told that if she can truly turn straw into gold, she will become the next queen.

It's fun to read how Aubrynn's and Rumple's paths cross and how they handle the predicament she's been placed in and how the royal family does indeed learn a lesson through Rumple/Prince Frederico. I highly recommend this book to everyone and especially those who love fairy tales!

*I received a free copy of this book to review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another home run! 16 Sept. 2013
By Ahaueter - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I LOVED this book. The Rumplestiltskin of my youth was not this Rumplestiltskin. He was mean, greedy, magical and terrible. This Rumplestiltskin, placed under a spell as a boy to teach the tyrannical monarchs a lesson, lives in a small hidden room under the stairs, the only person who ever cared for him in his rumpled, stilted state had died shortly before the whole country comes together to "remember" the little prince who had reportedly died (and to collect that year's tax of course). Aubrynn is there to pay taxes and finds that her drunken father had made an insane claim, that she could turn straw to gold! The king (Rumplestiltskin's younger brother, who is even more of a tyrant than their father) tells her that if she can do this, he will marry her. If she cannot, she, and her father, will die. What is the poor girl to do??
Rumple sees all this, and thinks he may be able to help her, if he can find the stones he had in his pocket when he was enchanted.
Aubrynn is saved by Rumple, and throughout the nights of spinning straw to gold, they fall in love with each other. But their success means a different kind of tragedy, she has to marry the tyrant king! How will they be able to be together, and will Rumple ever break his enchantment?

A very fun, quick read. Expect it to suck you in and not release you until you're finished with it. Jenni James does it again!
