Title and Author: Fabled by Kara Jaynes
Name of Reviewer:
Reason for choice of rating:
Several attempts are made on Isabelle's life and other characters are killed although deaths are not graphic.
Isabelle is old enough to get married and settle down or at least get a job but she dreams of using her archery gift and is NOT ready to get married. Life takes away the expected path to her dream (Archery Academy) so she sets off on a journey to achieve it by becoming a fabled hunter.
Along the way Isabelle meets two men, Silvan and Jack, who create a love triangle in the story but the romance is not overwhelming and the relationships are both vital components to the ongoing action within the story (and there is a lot of action - this is not just a romance story!)
I enjoyed the many snippets of fairy tales woven into Isabelle's adventures. Many of them were altered in creative ways to add to Isabelle's story.
I have mixed thoughts about Isabelle herself and the decisions she made throughout the story. Was she selfish or not? Did she make the right choice at the end of the story? I am not sure - I don't think so.
I definitely want to read book 2 to see where the story goes and what choices the characters make next. I am hoping that there will be some change and redemption for several of the characters.
Good for those who love fairy tales with lots of action
