Publisher's Summary

Rough-and-tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic - until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?"

As in Enchanted, listeners will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.

    "Being a Hero isn't based on what you do - but who you are."

    A great follow up to the first book, it was thoroughly enjoyable getting to know more about Saturday and the rest of the Woodcutter clan.

    The only down note? Katherine Kellgren, whom I normally enjoy (especially as the voice of The Royal Spyness series) was just OVERLY strident virtually the whole book. Sorry KK - you're one of my favorite female narrators - just maybe not so much on this book. Maybe we can pass some of that to the director though.

    Anyway, swords, magic, dragons and the Woodcutters make for a fun read.

    "Very Fun Listen, Great Story, Fabulous Narrator"

    Since others gave already given synopsis of the story, I'll spare that & state this & the 1st book are pure fun to listen to & picking up "The Rest of the Story" Fairy Tale references thoroughly adds to the enjoyment. Alethea Kontis writing gives great word pictures to put you there, watching the action, too.

    This, like the Harry Potter series is for a large range of ages. A knowledge of the standard fairy tales is somewhat necessary to get the point. Nowadays, not sure the kids are being told or reading them, but good stories on their own merit anyway.

    Katherine Kellgren is, as usual, Absolutely Wonderful! Her ability to make all the character's individual voices brings it all to life.

    Highly recommended listen!

    "Enjoyable second installment"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Lots of action, imaginative story line, strong female characters. I liked the look into a second of the Woodcutter sister's adventures. Quite different from the first book. The descriptions of the caves were really good.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I liked the narrator better in Enchanted. Her accents sometimes run into the narration, but my main objection was that she was so caught up in the excitement of the tale that she spent a lot of time yelling. It was as if the author had ended most lines in the book with two or three exclamation marks. This would've worked better in a live performance than an audio book.


    Any additional comments?

    In spite of the overly dramatic narration, I still enjoyed this book, and am looking forward to listening to the next in the series.

    "A nice follow-up to Enchanted"

    Katherine Kellgren is one of my favorite narrators so I listened to Enchanted, the first book in Kontis's series, because of her. I enjoyed the story, a twist on classic fairy tales. When I saw that Kontis was continuing the series, I was intrigued. The story is not as strong as that of Enchanted, but it is still a nice story and Kellgren does a good job with the narration. I would recommend this book, especially if you liked Enchanted.
