Love a good romance? As she learns, Elena has a number of little adventures, keeping the pace from lagging too badly. Then I got to the sex scenes. At least that felt like a satisfying outcome for them.

Mercedes Lackey: The Fairy Godmother

Prince Alexander is totally stuck-up, and a definite Alpha Ass in the beginning, and his thoughts and reactions as a donkey lead to many funny moments.

So why would you end this godkother with a traditional ending?

But by becoming a Fairy Godmother she could help others affected by falry and Tradition. Those who love the old tales will have fun spotting these various references and tropes.

Bella the Godmother appears to her and doesn’t just make-over her attire, but she makes over her life when she makes her the offer of training with her as her apprentice. As far as her marriage is concerned, their only response is to joke that it is traditional for Godmothers to take lovers, but if she wants to limit herself to one man, that is her choice.

The main character was annoying at first, but she grew on me, like the rest of the book did.

I don’t want to give nothing away though. So a great return to the fantasy genre and to Lackey, I will continue to read this series but this first book did not wow me like her other books have in the past.


The Fairy Godmother

This is one of my favorite books, my go-to comfort read. The Princess, the Dragon, and the Frog Prince.

Lackey melds the old with her unique vision of such a world. His naughty bits liked her naughty bits and suddenly they needed to be together forever. Otraria is a happy land. Finally, as the day’s about to end, a plump little eccentric-looking old lady shows up in a pony-cart, and offers to take her as an Apprentice Godmother. Overall, it’s a fun, funny, sweet, original story.

So much so that she goes from wanting a Prince to just any ordinary man in the village. So in the end, Elena ends up married to the prince after all. The title should be at least 4 characters long. I mean, you read in the blurb about the prince of Elena’s kingdom who was only 11 years old.

The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey

And so, she enters the magical world, eventually mercrdes a highly innovative and competent Godmother. During one her “jobs”, she encounters an arrogant, rude, self-centered prince, and his two brothers. In my head, this world looked akin to an old Nintendo game I have called Legends of Mania. I haven’t be Well, I’ve just finished my annual reread and felt it was high time to leave an actual review.

Unfortunately, Elena must give Alexander every seventh day as a human or he would be lost in the donkey. The Fairy Godmother – July 1 21 Jul 01, But breaking with “The Tradition” was no easy matter–until she got a little help from her own fairy godmother. But will there eventually be a happily-ever-after for her? The kingdoms are ruled by the “Tradition” a supernatural force that pushes people down a certain fairy tale path It is about a young woman named Elena, the daughter of a wealthy gentleman.


These novels are half fantasy, half romance, all perfect. We’ll publish them on our site once we’ve reviewed them. Although Elena falls into the Ella Cinders narrative, her story does not reach its natural conclusion.

I loved watching her figure out new ways of thwarting the Story so that it would ruin as few lives as possible while still giving the Story what it needed so it wouldn’t continue to meddle. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
