Publisher's Summary

Cora Goode has woken up in a fairytale world where she can understand what birds are saying to her, men ride horses and have fluffy feathers in their hats, and furniture zigs, zags, and whirls in miracles of construction. The problem is, she thinks she's in a dream, but she's actually taken the place of the parallel-universe Cora and, without realizing it, our Cora does something that starts a centuries-old curse that will sweep the land if she gets captured by the evil Minerva. At this point, her dream world becomes a nightmare. Luckily, hot guy, fantasyland Noctorno is there to save her from the clutches of the grotesque vickrants sent by Minerva to capture her. Unfortunately, hot guy, fantasyland Noctorno doesn't like the Cora of his world all that much (to say the least) and he thinks our Cora is her. And no matter what our Cora says or does to try to convince him, he won't be convinced. But Cora needs Tor to keep her safe and guide her through this fantastical world as she hopes one day to wake up in her not-so-great apartment in her not-so-great life in her world. The problem is, the more time she spends with the gorgeous warrior Tor, the faster she falls in love with him.

A Fantastical Adventure!

Wow...this was a great addition to the series. This third installment plot started out similar as the first two previous books. Girl wakes up in a different universe, girl doesn't want to fall in love with the hero but ends up falling in love anyway. Cora happens to trade places with a princess that happens to be a bit*h so everyone hates her guts. She brings a curse to the land and her "husband" has to save her and his land happens to be Hawkvaile. This book had a twist where both Cora and Tor are transported back to our word, so it was interesting to see how Tor went about our world. At the end it was a nice set up for the next book. If I had to put them in order according to the first 3 books this would fall second after the Golden Dynasty and Wildest would come in 3rd place. This is well worth the credit. On to Broken Dove!!

Favorite in the Series!

Read/Listened for Fun (Audible/Kindle)
Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.50
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 4.50 ( Narrated By Tilly Hooper )

Quick Thoughts: Hands down my favorite in the series. I think Fantastical is everything that is Magical about KA's writing. She beautifully wove Cora and Tor's love story. I LOVED IT!

Audio Quick Thoughts: On the same hand as KA's writing on this one, Tilly was in her element. She brought Cora and Tor beautifully to life!

Fab fantasy romance

I am not usually a fan of fantasy books but this one I loved, mainly because it is character driven, with the fantasy element simply adding a new dimension (literally!) to the plotline. Set in the same world as the two previous books in this series, my only criticism is that the epilogue was really the prologue of the next book.

If you are a romance reader who normally avoids books which depart from the real world, this fantasy series by Kristen Ashley is a good place to start. The first three books could be read as standalones, but as the fantasy element follows a developing storyline through each book, it’s probably best to read them in order
