    One thought on “The Wish Granter”

    1. “In the stories, wishes always comes with a price.” The prince squared his shoulders as if braced for a blow.“Everything comes with a price.” Teague stepped closer. “But I’m all that stands between your sister and death. Is there a price you wouldn’t pay for her life?”It would be doing a disservice not to explain that this book is a standalone within a series of standalone novels - all of which are fairy tale retellings. They are set in adjoining kingdoms with the possibility of [...]

    2. ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***The Wish Granter by C.J. RedwineBook Two of the Ravenspire seriesPublisher: Balzer + BrayPublication Date: February 14, 2017Rating: 4 starsSource: eARC from EdelweissSummary (from ):An epic fantasy inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen.The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the ba [...]

    3. (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“Teague would destroy her if he caught her trying to ruin him.She had to do it anyway.”This was a YA fantasy retelling of Rumpelstiltskin.I liked Ari in this, and I liked the fact that she had ‘generous curves’ and ate like a real person. She was also brave and kind, and I liked how she wasn’t bothered about titles, and treated everybody the same no matter if they were nobles or servants. The stor [...]

    4. Once again Redwine has done it once more, this woman sure know's how the write a retelling and do it well - bravo.“Sometimes having courage means the hardest tasks fall onto your shoulders, and those leave the biggest scars.” I love Ari, she's humble and nice, smart and kind and not only does she love to bake but she loves to eat as well - now that's the sort of princess I can relate too there. I like how true to herself she is throughout the books, even thought she is a 'princess', she does [...]

    5. I was never a huge Rumplestiltskin fan but I think CJ has made me one! I loved this! I think I may have even liked it better than The Shadow Queen! And Sebastian *swoons* I have a new book boyfriend!

    6. I don’t know why I waited so long to read this one because I loved it. Love love loved Ari and Sebastian. She’s sassy and calculating and loves pie. He’s quiet and loyal and claims to be able to live without pie. Together they’re adorable. She gets him to open up and he gets her to plan before she acts. I absolutely loved every scene of them together. Plot wise, I was captivated from the start. I loved how crafty Rumpelstiltskin was and how Ari and Sebastian get things worked out is perf [...]

    7. This was a cute book but I did find my mind wandering. There were parts that kept my interest but some were like going through the motions. I love fairytale retellings and I am not the biggest fan of the Rumpelstiltskin tale but this was a great spin on it.

    8. "He'll grant you the deepest desire of your heart, but in ten years he'll return for your soul."As soon as I saw mention of a Rumpelstiltskin retelling, I knew I had to read this. Alistair Teague was exactly the conniving, cruel, vengeful character that I hoped he would be. While also being The Wish Granter, he's also somewhat of a drug lord in the kingdom of Súndraille, and no one dares to defy him. That is, until Ari Glavan.Fooled into a wish, Ari's brother, Thad, is the new ruler of Súndrai [...]

    9. So so goodI loved it so much. This is more of a 4.75 stars but it is still an amazing book. First of allThe cover is insanely beautiful and I loved Ari's humour and everything about Sebastian.❤ I loved the concept of creating a rumplestiltskin themed retelling and since rumplestiltskin is my favourite villain apart from the evil QueenI enjoyed it even more. If you haven't read this already your missing out on a lot so go read it!!!Rtc

    10. This was a great take on the Rumpelstiltskin story. You will root for the hero and heroine and if you don't end up craving pastries by the end, I'd be shocked. Love immersing myself in this world. Hope another one is coming.

    11. Arianna is now a Princess to the Sundraille throne with her brother Thaddeus as the youngest King in the land. When an evil little Fae man known as Alastair Teague makes her brother keep out of his criminal drug business or else, Arianna is determined to save her brother and their kingdom from the creature's evil plans. Will they succeed? Read on and find out for yourself.This was a pretty good take on the Brothers Grimm Fairytale Rumplestiltskin. Whenever I read of Alastair Teague's character, [...]

    12. Actual Rating: 2.5 starsWarning: Possible spoilers below.I wanted to like this book so much more than I did. I absolutely love fairy tales and retellings, but this one just wasn't for me. Maybe part of me was biased going into it (I decided to read it more because I liked the first book in the series than because I was actually interested based on the summary). The Wish Granter is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. Thad and Ari Glavan are the bastard twins of the king of Súndraille and upon the bi [...]

    13. 4.5-4.75 stars. I'm utterly delighted by THE WISH GRANTER. It takes elements from the tale of Rumpelstiltskin, and integrates it into a fun, fast-paced story of a girl determined to save her brother and her kingdom, and a boy who is determined to escape his past. A few minor quibbles, but I definitely enjoyed this one!

    14. "Thad: But this is a boy, and you need to think of your reputation if you're spending time alone with himAri: Learning how to put a man's eye out or take him down at the knees. Very romantic stuff, Thad. Very romantic. Oh, and we also hid a body together, so we're practically engaged."I AM SO HAPPY THAT I READ THIS BOOK. I LOVE THIS BOOK.I LOVE C.J.Now The Wish Granter is a standalone in a series where each book is a standalone But I am not disappointed at alllllll. Like I said earlier, I really [...]

    15. I really liked this, it was so much fun. I've always thought Rumpelstilskin was creepy, even as a kid, I remember my Dad reading it to me. The character always stayed with me. He was brutal in this. Story was good and Ari took no crap. I'll be watching for what comes next in this series. I hope author picks something that's not been overtold, there is so much to choose from. I liked this one more than the first, just a bit.

    16. 2.5 starsreview to comeOk well .I liked a lot of things about this book. The MC is awesome, the characters are interesting and somewhat complex, there is magic and its a freaking Rumpelstiltskin retelling which is awesome!But I did not really enjoy this book AND I DONT KNOW WHY?So I'm going to think about this before I review.

    17. 3 starsI've read The Wish Granter quite recently and it was a fun, if not very original read.It's a retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairytale, but since I'm not familiar with the original tale, I can't comment on how accurate was the adaptation.Princess Ari never wanted her position in court and doesn't give a damn what people think of her. She and her brother are bastard children of the king, and their lives are in danger because of it. In an act of desperation her brother makes a deal with th [...]

    18. 2 + 1/2 stars. The ending was definitely the best part of the story :DQuite an entertaining read, but (view spoiler)[damn, this girl could have ruined seven kingdoms just to save one person (not to mention all the people that did get hurt, and I'm not talking about the ones she knew and felt bad for). Not her best move, not my favourite Ari in the book world :|(hide spoiler)]Other than this, Ari was a lovely, fleshed-out character and she wasn't taking no for an answer. The romance was also swee [...]

    19. 4-4.5 starsTotally did not expect to love this book as much as I did, and for it to become my new favorite C.J. Redwine book - and ship! I'm always a sucker for fairy tale retellings, and The Wish Granter had me invested from beginning to end. The best part was it's characters, Ari and Sebastian, two beautiful souls who found each other at the perfect time. Their romance gave me all the butterflies!

    20. 4.5/5I finally have time to read! I liked this book more than I thought I would and that's really great! And let us not forget how the cover is charming! I'm never bored of reading books and tales about faeries, they interest me so much. After I finished this book and saw the reviews I realized that this book is actually a retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin's tale I have to read it. The characters in this book were adorable, even the wish granter. I liked the way his feelings and cruelty showed up [...]

    21. absolutely loved this retelling of Rumpelstiltskin! This book had me hooked from the very first chapter! I literally could not put it down! I have been obsessed with CJ's writing ever since I read Deception (the first book in the Defiance series) and I think this is possibly my most favorite of all her books!!! Full review to come!!

    25. I fell in love with The Shadow Queen – and hereby I declare it as one of my favorite retellings of Snow White – so I was extremely excited about The Wish Granter. This book is part of the series, but they have separate stories.Alister Teague is cursed and he uses all his wit to break free. If you come across him and you make a deal with him, it means you are screwed. Alister is a foul player and that is how he manages to use Thad's desperation against him. He forces the boy into becoming Kin [...]
