Good Books Twice Upon a Time WHAT?????? Just... Just WHAT????!!!!!Initial reaction after finishing this book:Did Jack just...? And did Phillip...? And is May...? And Lian is...?I NEED THE LAST BOOK NOW. You have to be kidding me I-I-I just, I...I am going crazy right now!!!!!!! fAUKD,v.kfhbvk.fjb.kvl.s James Riley just totally leaves the reader to wonder what's going to happen next. (view spoiler)[Will May end up with Jack? Will Phillip end up with Penelope or will he die? Will Jack and his SISTER (Still trying to process that), be able to overthrow the Wicked Queen. And what about that crow? OH CRAP! (hide spoiler)]This book is a continuation of Half Upon a Time and a GREAT one at that. So let's get more in depth with that. With the good and bad (Yes there are some) aspects of this book.The Good1. The plotIn this book, Jack, May, and Phillip continue on there quest to the Fairy Homelands to find out May's true identity. But upon reaching, they get a HUGE surprise. The Wicked Queen has gotten a Fairy Queen to place the Fairy Homelands under a spell, that causes all that pass through the gate to fall into a sleeping spell. There, they encounter Lian, an eye for the queen. She is fast and is a practically unbeatable opponent for Jack. She informs them that at sunset tomorrow, the Wicked Queen's dragons will arrive to burn the homelands to the ground. Afterwards, they basically try to transport themselves back to The Piper's home, because the Piper is the one who got them to the Homelands in the first place, but they find that he is gone, and in his place are some of the Wicked Queen's allies, including the Wolf King, who honestly scares the crap out of me. So Jack, May, and Phillip run into the Piper's cave, where several kids have gone into but none have come out. Then they find a door at the end of the tunnel, which is opened by a morbidly obese adult dressed in a child's clothing. He welcome them to the Land of Never, (A spoof of Peter Pan's Neverland) Where none of the children ever grow up, and there are chocolate waterfalls, piles of money, you name it they got it. This mildly, well actually more than mildly creeps out our main characters who are the only ones who seem to realize that these children have aged. They try to tell the children, erm adults, that they are adults but they don't believe them. They then rescue King Pan from "pirates" and hoo ha yippy ka yay, a bunch of stuff happens and then they are on the sea with pirates who can help Jack, May, and Phillip find the Sea Witch, who can get rid of the spell on the Fairy Homelands so that May can find out who she is. The captain of the pirates, captain Bluebeard also needs something under the sea, which is (view spoiler)[his long lost love, Meghan. (hide spoiler)] This is the basic premise of the story. But there is many plot twists along the way. What I'm basically trying to say is that there was never a dull moment in this book, which I LOVE.2. The charactersNeed I say more? I LOVE Jack. I just want to strangle him in a giant hug!!!!! And Phillip too!!!! May is spunky, which I appreciate. She's not all like "I can't fight sharks that walk on land! I'll just sit here in the corner and wait for Prince Charming to swoop in and save me!" Basically, all of the characters are very well-developed. And I love them all. Me thinking about Jack and Phillip:The BadWell, there's only one thing I didn't like about this book. And it's just an eensy weensy thing, really. I read the first book a while ago, so details about the main plot weren't fresh in my head. The book didn't do such a great job recapping the last book. Which I would've liked. Also, one of the things wasn't quite clear. Who put the Fairy Homelands under a spell? Malevolent the fairy queen turned bad, or who???? But basically this was an unimaginably great book. And oh yeah, another thing I loved: All the revelations: (view spoiler)[Phillip is Sleeping Beauty's true love! May is Cinderella! Jack has a sister who is Lian! And Lian is actually against the Queen! And May and Jack's romantic tension!*Girlish squeal* (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

  • Just as fun as Half Upon a Time Told back and forth between Jack s POV and May s, Twice Upon a Time is full of chaos and things going wrong who says that fairy tales end happily ever after I liked seeing the twists on various fairy tales and myths and how they are intertwined, and appreciated seeing May and Jack and others grow as characters in many ways, this is a coming of age story, and a story about identity I liked how self aware the characters were about the craziness of what was going on, [...]


  • If you like twisted fairy tales, you will like this book It s probably upper elementary level, though both I and my high schooler enjoyed it as well If you don t mind fairy tale style magic, there is nothing objectionable in it except for the fact that the story doesn t end in the first book Nor in the second, and the third isn t out yet We can t wait for the third Be sure to read the author blurb on the inside back cover It s as funny as the book is If you haven t read the first book, do that f [...]

  • First reaction after finishing ASDFGHJJVBHUFJHNFADIFKJDFKK What just HAPPENED Jack is jack from Jack and Jill Lian is actually JILL Lian is good WHAAAT Need book THREE Although I did find some grammatical errors the book was still overall AMAZING




  • It explained abit of their backgrounds but I am not keen on their fighting scene It slows down the book progression and keep us away from getting to the good part plot explanation.




  • The sarcasm really won me over in this one I wish I had read them in order oh the shame but they were still a lot of fun to read, even without the suspense that linear reading would have caused.
