4 Stars: I Really Liked It
I love the books in this ‘series.’ It’s not really a series since the books are by different authors and completely different stories. If you love clean romance and fairytale retellings you’ll love these books! The Diamond Secret was a great read. I loved the time period. This was a retelling of Anastasia set in the time of the Russian civil war. I don’t know a lot about that time, but I always find historical fiction set around war very interesting.
Nadya was one tough heroine. She really was great. Sometimes I sort of like the guy characters more but not this time. I really think Nadya was amazing! She was rough on the outside and sensitive on the inside. She took an amazing journey to discover herself, family, and love. The guys were great too. They had a tough journey for sure.
A quick, entertaining, and romantic read! Check out all the “Once Upon A Time” books below.

Hi Kathryn, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
I really need to read these. 😀 Haha.
And yes Les Mis was good. (but the did do a lot more w/Fantine and the Thenardiers than was necessary) But it was amazing in music, sets, acting. Epic. 😀
Dazzling Mage- I totally love them too! Always great for a relaxing and entertaining love story.
Jess- Yes, they are really fun and short and awesome! My favorite is Midnight Pearls by Debbie Viguie. It's a re-telling of The Little Mermaid.
Oh, I love the “Once Upon a Time” series! Well, I only read Sharhazad's story, but still planning to read as much as I can of the rest! Didn't know there was an Anastasia re-telling though!
Thanks for the review!
I've never heard of this series. They look like fun short reads. I'll have to grab one for my kindle
