Book review: UnEnchanted, by Chanda Hahn

I'm a big fan of fairytale retellings, and UnEnchanted didn't disappoint, although I found the concept slightly derivative. As a fairytale retelling it was competent, as a high-school story it was competent, and all round the book was a pleasant way to idle away a couple of hours. But somehow it never realised its early promise; it was not so much that there was anything missing - klutzy, lovable heroine, check - loyal sidekick, check - ancient evil, check - just that there was nothing special to make this book rise above the great mass of similar books out there.

UnEnchanted is available from AMAZON and SMASHWORDS.
