Super quick review since this is a novella.
A Mirror Mended is the next installment in USA Today bestselling author Alix E. Harrow’s Fractured Fables series.
Zinnia Gray, professional fairy-tale fixer and lapsed Sleeping Beauty, is over rescuing snoring princesses. Once you’ve rescued a dozen damsels and burned fifty spindles, once you’ve gotten drunk with twenty good fairies and made out with one too many members of the royal family, you start to wish some of these girls would just get a grip and try solving their own narrative issues.
Just when Zinnia’s beginning to think she can’t handle one more princess, she glances into a mirror and sees another face looking back at her: the shockingly gorgeous face of evil, asking for her help. Because there’s more than one person trapped in a story they didn’t choose. Snow White’s Evil Queen has found out how her story ends, and she’s desperate for a better ending. She wants Zinnia to help her before it’s too late for everyone. Will Zinnia accept the Queen’s poisonous request and save them both from the hot-iron shoes that wait for them, or will she try another path? – Goodreads
I loved this just as much as book one in the series. Zinnia is a fantastic character. Brave, flawed, snarky and funny as all get out. I don’t want to say too much because it’s easy to spoil something when you’re reviewing such a short book. It is a modern take on the Snow White story and a refreshing new way of revisiting the villain origin story. It was an easy 5 star book. The only thing I didn’t like about it is that it is only a duology!! I could have read another few books in this series, but oh well. Alix E. Harrow is an auto-buy author for me these days so as long as she is still writing I won’t quibble about what she decides to give us. It’s all good.
