RJ is a fairy tale villain. Except the
Union has cursed him for a screw up
and now everything he does is not villainous at all. Oh, no. Everything he
does, no matter how villainous he tries to be, turns out to be nice. It’s
enough to make a bad villain cry.
RJ has been cursed for six days and it’s driving him crazy. He wants to get back to villainy, but the
Union thinks he needs a little more time, maybe even a
vacation. Then he comes home to find a pretty, sexy and ravenous woman in his
favorite chair. She inhales his dinner and asks him to help her solve what she
believes is the murder of her stepsister, Cindy. As in Cinderella. Yep. Cindy
was pushed in front of a bus and Asia wants to
know who did it. Because of the curse, RJ can’t say ‘No.’ and besides he’s
hoping to score with the pretty, sexy woman, so off they go to the Kingdom of
Maledetto to find themselves a murderer.
Amusing and irreverent this is not a story you want to read to the kiddies. No, no, no. This is for grown ups. The fun I had reading it is probably only slight compared to the fun I imagine was had in the writing of it. Perverting fairy tales. Why didn’t I think of that?! I look forward to reading Book 2!
