One second I was listening to Heather happily chatter away…and the next, I heard very loud buzzing sounds. It seemed as though everyone and everything around me stood frozen, and the buzzing just became louder and louder. The air rippled, and shapes and images appeared at random — shapes and images that I had never before seen. I got the feeling that they weren’t supposed to be in my world. Strange, blurred faces spun around and around, making me dizzy, and then large insects…no, bees popped into my vision. And, oddly, the bees were black and blue in color, rather than black and yellow. ~The Wrong Fairy Tale by Tamar Hela
The Wrong Fairy Tale Book Summary
~~Being a hero is not such an easy job after all.
It’s junior year, and Alex and her friends are just trying to survive high school: boring homework, detention, crushes…and a fateful journey through a portal to another planet—you know, the usual. Despite being average California teenagers, this group of six finds themselves on a return trip to the strange land of Cantelia, where their Spirit Guide, Goden, has sent them. This time, they appear near the Alfaran Forest: a place, where, once again, many inhabitants claim these kids are the Chosen Ones and that they will help to find a solution for ridding the forest of a new kind of horror.
Will the teens have the courage to fight the real enemy? Or will they be forever trapped on Cantelia? ~Cosby Media Productions
The Wrong Fairy Tale Book Review
The Wrong Fairy Tale is Book #2 in the Spirit Lake series by Tamar Hela and just like the first book it was fantastic. Ms. Hela uses alternating perspectives to keep us intrigued as she switches between the series heroine, Alex, and resident delinquent, Geoffrey. The book takes place a few months after the first book ends. Just as in the first book, the author pulls you into the crazy world of Cantelia and the deepening mystery surrounding Alex. By the end of the book, you are desperate to read more and discover all there is to know about this strange land and why these six people have been chosen to save it.
Due to strong language, I would recommend this book for older teens and young adults.
I received a free copy of this ebook, in exchange for my honest review.

Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children. I can often be found reading a good book (or even sometimes just an okay book) and enjoying a jar of Nutella — don’t judge. I blog, here, at HideTheChocolate.com when I’m not creating book clubs and making lists…lots and lots of lists (it’s an addiction). Learn more…
