The Trouble With Toads by Danyelle Leafty

Once upon a time a young girl wanted revenge. But first, she wanted to be beautiful. Twelve-year-old Bettony has read enough stories that begin with once upon a time to know what happens to the ugly stepsisters at the end, and she’s determined to escape that fate by any means necessary—even by magic.

Slippers of Pearl by Danyelle Leafty

Shoes, unlike magic, are predictable. They don’t change shape, bite, or alter a person’s destiny. And that’s just how Faryn likes it. But his Uncle Harvey has a bad habit of dying. While inconvenient, this hasn’t ever been a problem until now. Thanks to an evil witch and a poisoned apple turnover, Harvey is dead again—permanently this time. As his uncle’s heir, Faryn has to […]

This isn’t that story. Instead, Nerissa’s DID (Damsel in Distress) has a heart that only a mother could love, and a stepsister with a sweet disposition and a striking resemblance to the […]

Applespell by Danyelle Leafty

Firespell by Danyelle Leafty

Always read the fine print. This is especially true of fairy godmothering contracts that cannot be destroyed, transferred, or terminated. In all her years as a fairy godmother, Nerissa has only failed to help one girl, Mara, find her Happily Ever After. Twice. But the third time’s a charm—or it had better be, since the contract she has with Mara is still in force. Unfortunately, […]

Catspell by Danyelle Leafty

But if she has to choose between the two, she’d leave the Faerie Realm over getting bossed about by a faerie with a pointed stick any day.
