When Ash Summerland left the Academy of Magical Beings, he was sure he’d put his troubles behind him. But when his girlfriend, Kendall, is almost killed by an old enemy over something he knows little about, Ash is forced to confront the demons of his past.
With his fairy magic fading and his darker djinn magic more powerful than ever, Ash isn’t sure he can stop the evil from closing in around him. Although Kendall is the only thing keeping him from going over the edge, if he can’t learn to balance out his magic and find a way to defeat his enemies once and for all, both his world, and the girl he loves will be lost forever.
I LOVED Not Your Average Fairy Tale by Chantele. Everything about it was magical. If you are new to this series, I would read Fairy Tale first. That being said, I was thrilled with the release of Happy Ending, as I knew it would be just as enjoyable as the first. I was right. Like the first book, both Ash and Kendall are telling the story from their point of view, rotating chapters. We find out at the beginning, from Ash, that three months has passed. Ash has been living in the human world in an apartment near Kendall, while she is in school. While Ash is getting used to the whole "half djinn/half fairy" thing, Kendall is nearly killed by Dax, Ash's half brother. He wants something from Kendall that confuses Ash as to the reasoning behind it. This starts a chain of events that lead to many battles, healing, dragons, banshees, and many more exciting adventures that lead to more questions for Ash and being lead to those who have been lost.
4 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed Happy Ending. Just like the first book, Chantele did an amazing job with character development and plot. I was drawn immediately back to Kendall and Ash's world and what I loved about their relationship in Fairy Tale, was just as fabulous in Happy Ending. Chantele is not only an amazing author, she is a great friend of mine. I love her books and can't wait for more titles from her.
