Twisted Dreams
"I love the beginning. It’s told from Liesel’s point of view when she’s a baby. The confusion when she falls asleep only to awaken in another world is very realistic."--Brie (Includes Author Interview)

"If anyone can turn a fairytale into a sci-fi action novel, it’s Morgan. I really like how she completely went outside of the box and defeated ALL clichés. I definitely didn’t know what was going to happen next! If you’re a lover of sci-fi fiction, I recommend that you give this fairytale retelling a read, because you might find that it’s right up your alley!"--Melani

"This was a well done re-telling.  Rather unexpected at times too.  It took a while for me to figure out what exactly was going on, but that was a good thing.  I felt that the characters and plot were well balanced and the plot was completely unique...or at least, I've never heard of another re-telling done in this manner.  My favorite character was Matthew, and I would love to see him get a fairytale re-telling of his own."--Erudessa

"I am always amazed by the variety I can find in fairy tale retellings. There are traditional medieval fantasies, historical fiction stories, sci-fi adventures, and more- and then there are some stories that bridge genres and create something truly unusual. Twisted Dreams by Morgan Huneke is one of these. When the story opens, it feels like a pretty standard medieval fantasy. But even by the end of the secret chapter, you realize that this is as much sci-fi as fantasy, which was a pleasant surprise."--Sarah

"Twisted Dreams surprised out of the blue with a fairly complex plot. It starts off your typical, everyday Sleeping Beauty but there's something that's just a about everything.  Next thing I know, everything has been flipped up on it's head. Nothing is at it seems and everything is moving quickly. The pace was fast but not rushed and while it took me a bit to figure out what was going on it was a really good story."--Sutori no Hana

Poison Kiss
"The other characters are equally well done. Auralea spends less of the book asleep than some sleeping beauties, so she has a personalty. But the one who really shines is Edmund. He’s not your typical fairytale prince, partly because he’s not a prince at all, and also because there’s time for his character to develop."--Brie (Includes Character Interview with Edmund)

"Sleeping Beauty doesn't always go the way you expect.  In this amusing retelling, the heroine is cursed to die by True Love's first kiss.  And the Hero isn't exactly your normal 'fairytale Prince' either.  Mixed in are also a few other fairytale characters you might recognize! This was, as I said, a very amusing retelling.  Kendra has a delightful talent of taking multiple fairytales and mixing them together in a very unique way."--Erudessa

"The writing is fabulous and at times hilarious, which I loved, and the dialog was splendid! My absolutely favorite stories are funny ones, and add that to a (double!) fairytale retelling and some lovable characters, and you have a recipe for a story I’ll love—as I definitely did this one! ^_^"--Deborah

Rosette Thornbriar
"I don’t tend to read children’s stories much, but I like this one. Rosette Thornbriar is not overly simple and fits very well in its setting. I have read stories in which something is skewed or just sounds plain odd in a different setting. This isn’t one of those."--Brie (Includes Author Interview)

"This was a very cute little book. It is surprisingly short, and only took me a couple minutes to read. Sleeping Beauty has never been my favorite fairy tale, but I was able to enjoy this retelling very much. There is something about this author's writing style, something I can't put my finger on, that is very charming. Whatever it was, I liked it a lot. This author shows a lot of promise."--Addyson
