The four-part series follows Rory from learning that she has been invited to attend an “Ever After” after school program to the satisfying conclusion where the sword-wielding heroine gets to have take part in her own “story.” Bach does a wonderful job of weaving her contemporary character into classic fairy tale worlds.
Up until now, the adventures and battles have all taken place in the other world, but Rory’s confrontation with the Snow Queen, and her evil allies, crosses over to places thought to be safe. The final battle is the greatest of them all and Rory’s inner strength and fighting ability are put to the test.
