My Feelings:

Have you ever wondered what happens to the other people in the fairy tale?

Things look grim for Talia and her mother. By royal proclamation, the constables and those annoying “good” fairies have taken away their livelihood by confiscating their spinning wheel. Something to do with a curse on the princess, they said.

Not every young lady has a fairy godmother rushing to her rescue.

Without the promise of an income from spinning, Talia’s prospects for marriage disappear, and she and her mother face destitution. Past caring about breaking an arbitrary and cruel law, rebellious Talia determines to build a new spinning wheel, the only one in the nation, which plays right into the evil fairy’s diabolical plan. Talia discovers that finding a happy ending requires sacrifice. But is it a sacrifice she’s willing to make?

My Review:

I thought this book would be different. I thought it would contain lot of magic scenes and sweet romance. The Sevenfold Spell disappointed me. The romance and the feeling that you get when you read a fairy tale was missing and for me those two are essential to a story like this.

Talia was a character I did not find likeable. Maybe it was because the story was 97 pages and there wasn’t any depth or just because she was not that fun. She felt a little bit too flat for me.
Her actions after her one and only went away where not acceptable and I could not understand her at all. It was just so shameful and bad.

I really liked the “good” fairies. They did have a small part in the story, but I loved what they did at the end.

I did like the ending. Not to spoil it for you, but the title of my blog will tell you everything you need to know. If you would love to read a fairy tale with an edge to it, you should try it otherwise stick to the old ones.

Oh, I'm sorry this disappointed. It does sound like it would be a sweet supernatural read. Now, I doubt this is for me. Great review though, and thank you for your honesty!

Hmmm... Sounds like it could have been done a lot better.

Thanks for the honest review!

I might like this one. Sounds like the old faerie tales where a HEA was not guaranteed. Sorry, you didn't like it. Great review!

Sad to hear it wasn't that good, I don't think I'll be picking this up any time.

Thank you for the honest review, if there's not really a romance, I probably wouldn't like it either!
