Book Description

Faerytales. They're real . . . they just haven't happened yet.


Halley Starr finds out the truth when she loses her heart with a
curse. Now she has to get it back from that dirty faery who stole it from her,
but first, she must fight against the seven rules of the faery kingdom that
mortals must never break


  • No trespassing sacred faery territory

  • Don’t ever say thank you

  • Using a faery’s given name is a no-no

  • Resist all faery music

  • Never break a promise to a faery

  • Reject all faery food

  • And never, never fall in love with a faery


    • But if Halley wants her heart back again, she can’t worry about the rules.

       



      “With a Kiss” is the first book in the
      Twisted Tales Series.


      (Also included in this edition: A glossary of faery terms, Map of the Sidhe,
      and a List of Fae Creatures)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Read! 27 Mar. 2013
By TDean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a completely fun and witty read. I finished it in two days, and can't wait to read the rest of the series. My favorite thing about the book is that it just keeps getting better. It's an adorable love story with an original take on the fairy-tale world. Definitely worth the purchase!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unrealized potential 7 Aug. 2013
By Becca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by another author on a writing website, and I thought I'd give it a try. The cover was cute (not the cover on Amazon, a different one with a girl in a fairy costume) and the story started okay. I was immediately impressed with the author's ability to create interesting characters. They come across as very real and intriguing, and the voice of the protagonist, Halley, is adorable. It was an interesting plot from the start, very well written in terms of the use of language, and well-edited.

I was all in for the first couple chapters, until I realized that either Halley was literally crazy and all over the place with her thoughts, or the writer had "discovery written" the book and had no idea at first where it was going. I actually put it down for a few weeks, confused and overwhelmed. Then I picked it up in a moment of boredom and decided to give it one more try. This time, I really liked the world-building aspect, and the writing was strong, but again, there were holes all over the place, and it seemed to have no direction. It felt almost as if the writer threw things in, saying, "This would be cool. Oh, and what if this happened?" I actually did read it to the end, just to see if I was the one with the problem, and the ending just kind of fizzled out. I was left sitting there, thinking, what just happened?

I loved the author's writing style, and I think the clever retelling of A Midsummer Night's Dream had potential. It was just too much and too all over the place for me to give a five-star rating. With some changes, this could be a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to Faery Tales! 4 April 2013
By Dealsharingaunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
First let me say that this book is appropriate for all ages and is a great edition to the faery tales of all time. I really liked it and got some laughs out of it. Even though it is based on tales that I already know, I was still finding myself surprised at times. The author did a fantastic job of creating a world that is relatable and believable. I love that Halley is in high school and is working at a "dead end" job. Little does she know what truly is in her future. In the beginning, I didn't think that she was ready, but as the book went on, I knew that this was her calling.

Hobs is also one of my favorite characters of all time! I would love to have a "Hobs" in my life. lol.

I am giving this book a 5/5 and definitely recommend this book to girls of all ages! My niece loves, and I mean LOVES this sort of stuff, and I can not wait to have her read it! She is a little young still (6) lol, but I will save it for her!

I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own ! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 1 April 2013
By Mandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Halley is emotionless. She's never been the emotional type like her sister. She also doesn't fit in while her sister is fair and looks like her parents Halley is darker with dark hair. It's on the big night of the play where Halley will play a fairy that she starts to hear a baby crying. When she finds the baby she's thrust into a world she didn't know existed given the task of delivering the princess to her mother the faery queen. Thankfully she doesn't have to travel through faery alone she joined with a protector Hobs who will help her on her journey.

Along the way the pair will encounter many challenges from nymphs to wolves even army's set out to capture the princess. They are joined by a grumpy leprechaun who helps the pair on their quest. Halley is set on delivering the princess and returning to the life she left behind. From the start it's been drilled into her that she needs to follow the rules but as the journey continues she learns that sometimes you have to break the rules. Will she be able to get Babs safely to the queen before time runs out?

A fast paced story the keeps you captivated from the start right till the end. The author does an amazing job of putting a new spin on classic faery tales. I've always been a fan of faery tales so when the chance came up to read the twisted tales I was all for it. I really liked Halley she grows so much from who she was when the book starts. I wasn't sure at first about Hobs only in part because I didn't like all the mystery and for a long time I was sure he would be a bad guy, by the end I was all alright with him. I'm still not sure how I feel about the Halley and Hobs thing it just didn't work out in my mind. Maybe I just see someone who isn't so secretive for her. I highly suggest anyone who loves faery tales should check out the series because they really are fantastic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Read For Free 28 Nov. 2013
By Xanpluto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The characters are wonderful and believable. I especially love how well "crazy" is described in the first few chapters. However, the plot is hard to follow the more you read.
I am currently debating about continuing the series but don't like the idea of a narrator change. I like Halley's perspective and am unsure about the upcoming twists.
