Rough-and-tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic - until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?"
As in Enchanted, listeners will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.

Enjoyable second installment
Lots of action, imaginative story line, strong female characters. I liked the look into a second of the Woodcutter sister's adventures. Quite different from the first book. The descriptions of the caves were really good.
I liked the narrator better in Enchanted. Her accents sometimes run into the narration, but my main objection was that she was so caught up in the excitement of the tale that she spent a lot of time yelling. It was as if the author had ended most lines in the book with two or three exclamation marks. This would've worked better in a live performance than an audio book.
In spite of the overly dramatic narration, I still enjoyed this book, and am looking forward to listening to the next in the series.
