Review- War and Pieces: Season 1, Episode 1 (Frayed Fairy Tales) by Tia Silverthorne Bach, Ferocious 5 and N.L. Greene

War and Pieces on Goodreads


Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there were zombies...

That's how it all started. Authors have created a major problem with stories like CinderThe Dark Queen, and Asleep, and it's wreaking havoc here in Ever After. Our queens are fighting for their lives.

Rather like Mother Nature, keeper of the fine balance that's life in your world, tales that begin with "Once upon a time" were never meant to be messed with.

Now, Ariel is underwater with all the defenses she's been launching, Aurora hasn't slept in weeks, and Rapunzel is tangled in... Well, I can't even begin to tell you.

Rather than try, I'll let you see for yourself. You and I will talk again afterward--if I survive long enough. So, as our fateful story begins:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away...

Release date: April 24th 2017
Page numbers: 36


I, very randomly, stumbled upon War and Pieces which is a collection of episodes based on the fairy tales we have all been hearing since childhood. I love reading fairy tale retellings and I really admire it when they are given new twists and turns. That was the exact same case with War and Pieces, which was a gripping and fun read.

For a book that's barely a few pages long or short, the story was really well written and had me on the edge of my seat because every time something calm and cool from one part of the story was happening, I wanted the more exciting part from the other story to come up. This is the story of sisters Rose and Snow who also happen to be very gorgeous and lovely princesses.

The fact that the story focused more on Rose, and especially her very personal thoughts and desires made it extremely interesting, because I instantly developed a liking for the warm, kind and gentle princess who seems like such a normal person. She's daring, and yet, there's a part of her that's always watching out for what's going to happen.

The way this book ended was abrupt but cool, yes, but I really need more of these fun and interesting episodes, because they make for great short reads. I am genuinely looking forward to seeing what happens next in Rose's life.
