Shannon’s Thoughts:

Brothers Sean and Marcus are having a wonderful childhood until their father dies in front of them. The boys grow into troubled men with different views on life.  Family oriented Sean has decided it is time to sell the family business. Just as they sign the papers to sell, the brothers are whisked off to the land of Fairy Tales. The stories are not as whimsical and happy as kids today would know in fact the characters they meet have darker life stories then anyone would think.

The retelling of fairy tales is very popular today.  When I see one I am interested in it has to be different. This one is different because the main characters are guys and the story is very adult.  There are adult situations and language which isn’t a good or bad thing it just is.

I really feel like this first volume could have gone longer. The story of the brothers dealing with father’s death and the business to sell was a good length but then we get to the land of fairy tales and it felt short plus rushed.  It could have been stretched out and we could have seen more characters learned more about where the brothers family came from.

The twist at the end that their world was changed because of something they did in the story land was kinda funny and interesting.  I am definitely curious what will happen in the next volume.
