A week before her birthday a curse is enacted sending her to the nightmare realm of Malediction - sweeping her, a trusted guard, and the prince of a neighboring kingdom into its dark clutches. Escaping the world is impossible, but if they don't find a way out they will either die or become permanent residents of the dreamscape. If Elodie doesn't return home in time her kingdom could be lost to her forever.
As they battle for their lives, every decision exacts a monumental price. They must make sacrifices that will burn holes into their souls and every step brings new risks. With victory within reach, they realize that it comes with an irremediable loss and must suffer the consequences of their actions.

Mediocre Story, but worth a listen
I was really excited about this book, but I’ll be honest, it was all over the place for such a short novel/audiobook and it had a hard time keeping my interest. There were some fun parts about the story.
I could not connect with any of the characters and I feel like I missed certain parts because I was just generally bored.
I found myself comparing it to Snow White, even though it’s supposed to be an original story—evil step-mom, Prince Charming, old witch, etc. Not a good look.
The narrator—wasn’t horrible. She had a great voice for the characters and I loved her voice for the witch and LuLu. You can tell she may have been a newer narrator. She made several narrating no-nos that we’re slightly irritating (repeating lines, in and out of mic, voice changes—volume changes, etc.)
Overall, I will try to listen to this book again to make sure I’m making a fair judgement, but I’m not looking forward to listening to it again. I just feel bad when I tune out audiobooks and lose track of the story—but if it wasn’t boring, then maybe I wouldn’t have lost track.
I was given this audiobook for free for an honest review.

A fairy tale in the making
I enjoyed the story, it has all the hallmarks of a story that will be considered a fairy tale in the decades to come:
- Evil stepmother - check
- Forced betrothal - check
- Alternate love interest - check
- Knights - check
- A heroine unwilling to wait to be saved - check, check, check
I love that Princess Elodie is determined to be able to take care of herself, there is damsel in distress here! I'd read this again.
But I wouldn't listen to it again, nope, eBook here I come. I know I gave the narration 2 stars which suggests it was bad, but mostly it's just really REALLY badly edited. There are dozens of sections where the audio repeats because a mistake hasn't been edited out, some are small, just a couple of seconds a fair few are 10 seconds or longer, and in some cases the audio is there three times. It had a large impact on my enjoyment of the book.
This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
