TEXT ↠ The Ever Afters #1 ´ Shelby Bach Re breathing dragon on her first day she realizes the situation is unusual than she could have imagined It turns out the only fame that matters at Ever After School is the kind of fame earned from stories Rory thought were fictional But as Rory soon learns f The first part of Giants and Ice is getting to know Rory and her family and an introduction to the Ever After School EAS Rory is in the sixth grade her parents are divorced and both her parents are movie stars Being from famous parents she has always felt like she never really had true friends plus it's hard to get to know anyone when your moving from place to place all the time The Ever After School EAS is an after school program designed to assist the students with their tales An interesting concept where everyone is a character in a fairy tale and they are waiting for their tale to begin This part of the story kinda got bogged down for me Rory seems to worry a lot worries about making friends having her own tale will she be able to complete it and there is uite a bit of bickering between her and Chase There's one big action scene at the beginning and even some mysterious dreams that Rory doesn't seem to understand but alluding to what is to come The second part of the story is where things get imaginative and creative Rory's friend Lena is given a tale Not just any tale but Jack and the Beanstalk and she chooses Rory and Chase to be her companions This is where all the action happens and Rory begins to grow as a character There are some great scenes between Rory and Chase and I hope they will continue to be prominent in the second book in the series I really like the balance of Rory who has a strong desire to do well and Chase who can be infuriating with the brainy Lena who is very smart but also makes mistakes as well Most of all I really enjoyed the twists with the fairy tale characters the giants were certainly different then what I recall but uite amusing Review copy provided by authors agent and won as a giveaway from literaryramblescom A big thank you to both

EPUB ☆ MOBI Of Giants and Ice î The Ever Afters #1 FREE â RANDARENEWABLES ¶ Rory Landon has spent her whole life being known as the daughter of a famous movie star mom and director dad So when she begins a new after school program and no one knows who her family is Rory realizes somet Airy tales are very real and she is destined to star in one of her ownThis first installment of The Ever Afters series reimagines classic fairy tale characters in a modern context merging familiar fantasy with the everyday realities of middle grade existence Age 10Content Warnings Divorce minimal violence death alcohol consumptionLibrary Category Juvenile Fairy Tale FantasyThis is one of the few middle grade novels that hasn’t lost its charm It’s disappointing that with such a high average rating barely anyone’s ever heard of it; even my huge library network only has a couple of copies Anyways it’s a fairy tale world with a uesting aspect to it that gives it a bit of a Percy Jackson vibe The writing wasn’t high level per se but for a middle grade novel it didn’t disappoint The plot and pacing were well done and I was almost constantly on the edge of my seat even though I’ve read the book before My only concern is the example the characters are setting for younger children Just like my re read of another middle grade fantasy novel Fablehaven I found that the characters were not the best role models Back to this book in some ways they learned to work together and become friends but the teasing was rude and mocking than in good humor and the fights were often extremely petty This isn’t to say that it’s not a realistic outlook on today’s society or a reflection of how typical childrenteens act but I also don’t think we should be feeding our children this kind of behaviorPossibly offensive content For anyone 13 there shouldn’t be many issues although the MC's parents were divorced and there was one scene in which an adult drank to excess For younger children as I mentioned above the amount of blatant rudeness could definitely be considered a little over the top There was some violence but it wasn’t too graphic there were a few dragon fights a kid lost a few fingers multiple kids fainted etc There were definitely a few mature themes mature in terms of elementary schoolers Really think of other middle grade novels like The Wishing Spell The Land of Stories series Fablehaven the Fablehaven series The Lightning Thief the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series etcI would highly recommend this uartet to anyone looking for a fun uick read for themselves or their children

Of Giants and Ice The Ever Afters #1Rory Landon has spent her whole life being known as the daughter of a famous movie star mom and director dad So when she begins a new after school program and no one knows who her family is Rory realizes something is different After she ends up fighting a fi Original BookTube review HEREOh my gumdrops it’s awesome This is a middle grade fantasy and you know what I’ve got to be honest with you guys Middle grade fantasy is my favorite genre It’s fun it’s uirky it’s innocent it’s full of magic and still manages to retain that beautiful wonder of childhood I don’t know about you but that’s a feeling I want to hold onto for a long timeThe reason I picked this book up was the cover I know we’re not supposed to judge books by their covers but look at this thing It’s an explosion of beautiful artwork –there’s even a dragon– and I couldn’t help myselfRe told fairy tales are running wild in books and film today –which I absolutely love– so there’s a lot of competition in this genre There’s the Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley The Hero’s Guide series by Christopher Healy and so many But Bach has become my hero in the retold fairy tale department because she has not only employed the beloved classics like Snow White and Rapunzal but also incorporated several lesser known fairy tales and actual fairy ‘mythology’ into her world This is an especially great treat to any of us who have read the original tales or say studied up on fairy tale mythology for a book or something Because of this I feel that Bach has managed to develop a new niche to dominate The Ever Afters is a deliciously unpredictable take of a brilliant concept I finished this book in two days which I haven’t done in a whileIt was a relief to note that the three predominant characters and not just the protagonist experience character development in this book About halfway through I was getting a little impatient for some development but the fact that it did grow slowly and through specific experiences was realisticI loved that this book used the fantasy adventure aspects to help the characters grow not only as adventurers but as kids dealing with normal issues of growing up and family hardshipsThe writing is smooth and easy to read the main character has attitude but in a fun voice and Ms Bach certainly knows how to capture your imagination I was hanging on her every word The story itself has a high adventure feel that could appeal to older readers even though it is a middle grade novel and her hidden fairy civilization a nice sophistication to and a darker tone appropriate for the original storiesOf Giants and Ice gets 5 stars and anyone who loves fairy tales or fantasy adventure needs to read this book so spread the word and spread it fast
