Mirror, Mirror on the Wall...Who's the Unfairest of Them All?
From Kirkus Reviews: "As in series opener The Storybook of Legends (2013), Hale goes to town with her premise, stretching the rules of her universe as much as Raven does...But she never lets readers forget that the central question of her tale, the one that plagues her characters, is whether destiny prevents or is freedom. A delicious, pink-and-purple-frosted existential cupcake."
From Deseret News: "Shannon Hale has once again created an entertaining story that tackles the issue of destiny and making choices in a way that is easy to understand. She also creatively weaves in threads and lessons about friendship and cooperation despite differences throughout the story. Although the themes of choices and consequences can be a heavy topic, Hale keeps the story light and flowing."
From School Library Journal: "The fun and pun-filled fantasy hijinks of Raven and Apple ensue."
