The Better To See You (Transplanted Tales #2) by Kate SeRine
Release Date: 7 February 2013
Once upon a time, a spell went awry and Make Believe characters were cast into the ordinary world. And the results aren’t always happily ever after…
Everyone thinks fairy godmothers can do no wrong. But if not for a certain spell mis-cast by Lavender Seelie, Cinderella’s former fairy godmother, the Tales would not be stuck in the Here and Now. Fortunately for Lavender, she’s about to get a second chance at a happy ending…
The Refuge, a sanctuary for wayward Tales, seems like the perfect place for Lavender to start a new life—especially when she discovers an unexpected ally in Seth, the brooding werewolf who’s been typecast as a villain ever since his run in with Little Red Riding Hood. But when humans from nearby towns start turning up dead, their bodies mutilated with archaic Tale symbols, Lavender wonders if Seth’s deep sensuality has blinded her to the truth. And that distraction could put innocent lives in danger. Including her own…
My Opinion 5 STARS
Another brilliant book in the series, where again we meet even more characters from Tales and stories that have been brought over from the land of make-believe.
This book however focuses on Lavender Seelie (the fairy godmother of cinderella) and Seth Wolf (The big bad wolf).
This book definitely has more of a paranormal feeling to it as well as the previous who-dun-it mystery as to is performing killings.
Both have their own issues to deal with, of being a bad person, of being hounded for who and what they are, however Lavender having made the breech into the modern world is seemingly more hated than the hunted wolf.
Enjoyed seeing Puck (Robin Goodfellow) being introduced as Lavender's brother and seeing the naughtiness that is his character and being introduced to a few others that I had not really heard about, or even forgotten about.
It was also good to see a little more from Nate and Tess, even if it was only in two small bits.
Really looking forward to reading the story of Trisha and Nicky Blue next in Along Came a Spider.
