There were many odd bits and pieces of other fairy tales woven throughout: Still, the main storyline that holds it all together is the romantic tale of the frog-prince and Sunday Woodcutter, who is the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter. Enchanted was quite the mix of fairy tale goodness.
I really loved the Woodcutter family – named after the days of the week – they all have their very own personality based on an old rhyme. The story really starts with Sunday falling in love with a frog – a talking one of course – and really takes off from there. We have fairy godmothers, princes, evil fairies, and even a changeling. I really liked how we got to know so many different people in the Woodcutter family. All the sisters have a special role to play and each of them get to be the hero at some point in the story.
I loved that they were the heroes and got to save the day several times. Arilland is an amazing kingdom full of magic that I really enjoyed. But there were just too many fairy tales going on. While there were combined and meshed together quite well, my mind kept jumping around from one to another and sometimes lost track of where it was actually going in the story.
I had a few “now what” moments. On the other hand, I’m totally invested in this family and I need to know what happens to the next sister. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I was intrigued with the summary for this book.
I come from a family of 7 daughters and 2 sons. I line up with daughter number 4, Thursday, who ran off with the Pirate King and sends trunks of gifts back home, haha!
The first line is, “My name is Sunday Woodcutter, and I am doomed to a happy life. They become good friends and she enjoys telling him about her family. He asks her to kiss him since that’s how the fairytale goes and nothing happens. She goes ebchanted and tells him more about her family and he asks her to kiss him again so she does, and, again, nothing happens.

She kisses him a third time and had to run off so she doesn’t know for quite a while that something did happen this time. I loved Sunday and Rumbold, the prince also Grumble the frog. When he was Grumble, Sunday found him easy to talk to. As Rumbold, she’s intrigued with him but their family doesn’t like him because of something else that happened in the past.
Encnanted she’s finding it hard to continue disliking him when she feels so drawn to him. This book is full of fun, colorful characters and lots of different fairytale references.
There’s romance, mystery, adventure, magic, danger, rnchanted, friendship and humor. I’m excited to read more about this family in Hero Saturday finding love is sure to be quite funny and even more in the future!
I recommend this to anyone that loves fairytales, clean romance and adventure! I listened to this on audiobook. I loved the voice of Katherine Kellgren and her accent, and this is an audiobook definitely worth listening to.
This was a fun read. It assumes a knowledge of European fairytales and nursery rhymes, mashes them up, stirs a few times and produces a fast-moving story with intriguing and likable characters. Well-known tropes from the fairytales show up and then they’re quite different from the original. I found, to my surprise, nearly all the wlethea were sympathetic.
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
It has a romance at its center, but in a fairy-tale kind of way rather than a romance genre kind of way. The intricacies of the plot can get convoluted, probably from trying to squeeze in every possible fairy-tale reference. But it comes to a satisfying conclusion that felt like solving a jigsaw puzzle that yields a particularly attractive picture.
Our heroine falls in love instantly, and why not? This novel is a kind of fairy tale woven of fairy tales, and the fact that her true love is initially a frog is just one of the endearingly strange elements that make this story so intriguing.

Another is the whimsical and sometimes dangerous magic manifested in her very special family. I was reminded of the sometimes sinister fairy forces in “Little, Big,” another great fantasy, only this story is more dreamy and sometimes nightmarish. It’s perfect for YA audiences, but adults endhanted enjoy a flight of fancy will find it compelling, too.
