Prince Richard is cursed. Enslaved to a magic mirror, he must truthfully answer the evil queen when she uses it to call on him. To keep from betraying innocents, Richard wanders the countryside and avoids people. All her life, Gretchen has been teased for being small. When she hears of a hidden farm populated by little people like her, she sets out to find it—and is welcomed by the mostly male inhabitants. Lars in particular woos her with his gentle kindness and quiet strength.Danger looms when Gretchen meets a runaway princess and offers her shelter at the Little Farm. Wandering nearby, Richard instantly falls in love with the beautiful princess, and is later compelled to tell the queen that she is not the fairest of them all. Enraged, the queen vows to find them and destroy them. If either Gretchen or Richard are to have their happy endings, they must team up to break the mirror's spell before the queen kills them all…

I'm just going to say it: I adored this novella. This book was a perfect blend of fantasy, paranormal romance and all around goodness. While this is book two in a series, it is completely separate then the first book in the series, The Sevenfold Spell, which I reviewed here. This book just captured my heart from the first chapter and didn't let go. All the characters are looking for normal, but have had tragedy in their past that makes it hard for them to find it and to trust others. This book is really two love stories in one, and one of the more unique fairy tale retellings that I have read. I read this book in one sitting, and just loved how unique this book was. This is one book you'll want to take a chance on!
