Twisted Tales 1-2, Review

In this fast-paced story full of adventure and romance, Cinderella is more than just a servant girl waiting for her prince—she's a tough, fearless girl who is capable of taking charge of a dangerous situation. Seeking to escape the clutches of her evil stepmother, Cinderella perfects her ninja skills and magic talents in secret, waiting for the day when she can break free and live happily ever after. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Cinderella and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!

When i got the book for review, i was like "there is no way i like it". I kinda loved it you know. I was never fun of Cinderella to tell you the truth. But this book...oh my...! I wish the original stories were like that! Forget the sweet cliche love story and the poor girl. Here we have witches, championships, warriors, villains and even dragons! How awesome is it? The author keeps simple the writing and it's still like you read a fairytale. And while she doesn't change the final outcome or the main story, she adds some magic in it and make it more adult-y. Plus, you get to say how the story will go! Yep1 That's right! You decide! There about 4-5 places in the book where you have the option to choose how they story will go by picking one of the two alternatives given. So when you done, you can just come back and read something else! Something like a book that never ends. I didn't try all the roads though, i cause i was pretty sure about my choice. You can imagine how much fun i had reading it! The only thing i didn't get was the "ninja" part. It doesn't seem to fit in the story that much.

 In this thrilling story full of adventure and romance, Sleeping Beauty is more than just a lonely princess waiting for her prince—she's a brave, tenacious girl who never backs down from a challenge. With vampire-slaying talents that she practices in secret, Sleeping Beauty puts her courage to the test in the dark of night, fighting evil as she searches for a way to break the spell that has cut her off from her family. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Sleeping Beauty and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!
Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer is an entirely new type of fairy tale–one that will keep today's kids guessing and offer them hours of magical fun.

Now, Sleeping Beauty is one of my fav fairytales and this book make it even better. Of course the original is wonderful, but i'm older now so i found this one more interesting. As happened in Cinderella too, the author keeps the main story and adds some....vampires,fairies,magic,violence...Only the thought it's getting me excited! It had so much action in it! And it even had a love triangle XD The level of the adult material is a bit higher than with Cinderella as you can imagine. Vampires, know! Take that Twilight! A fairytale-romance with our well known to all vampires!^^ Again, you have the chance to pick how the story will go and i have to admit i was thinking more my answers in this one, cause i was afraid for the heroes.

Twisted Tales totally deserve a read! They are funny and unique in their own "weird" way.
