The book did surprise me in many ways. Its a fantasy book that has fairies and witches. Oh not to forget a dragon too. I loved the plot which was quite interesting to sail through and had a freshness to it that made all the difference to the book.
The Missing Fairy Princess- About the Book and the Author
“The Missing Fairy Princess” is the story of a 16-year-old fairy princess pitted against a powerful witch. The witch has stolen a potent new mantra developed by a colleague, ruthlessly snuffing out a brilliantly innovative mind. She then hatches an elaborate plot to frame an adversary for her misdeed. Her intention is to exact sweet revenge from her foe and at the same time, get away with the theft. The victim, caught in her vicious web, is doomed to disgrace and a life sentence on a harsh penal colony. Meanwhile, the witch learns from her crystal ball, about an imminent threat from a fairy princess wearing a pink tiara. To ward off that threat she kidnaps the fairy princess, wipes her memory clean and then turns her into a two-year-old girl.
Unfortunately for the culprit, she has goofed up by kidnapping the wrong fairy princess, Merlyn, instead of Ashlyn, her twin. The mistake turns out to be the undoing of the witch because Ashlyn proves to be her nemesis. The brilliant fairy princess exposes the cobweb of misleading evidence fabricated by the witch, ultimately unmasking her.
If you love mystery, whodunit, with a dash of magical realism and sci-fi, this book is for you.

The Missing Fairy Princess- RWAT Take
Fairies, witches and a court drama.. what’s there not to like !!
First of all a huge thanks to the author and b00kr3vi3ws for sharing me the copy of the book and allowing to enjoy this fantasy work.
I am going to start with the thing that kind of pricked me in the book and then move on to other facts. The book has a simple and fast treatment which is good except at some places you feel like the narration is moving too fast without actually caring for what is happening in the scene. It seems like that it is wading through the surface without exploring the depths . That is the only issue I had with the book that it does not dive deeper.
Maybe it’s because it does not stay at a point, too long that the book moves fast and provides for a fast reading.
In the first half I was feeling that the book is sprinting from events to events and just wants things to happen quickly and magically but it wasn’t until I reached the second half that I felt that the book has completely changed its nature.
The second half is full of surprises. There is so much going on that for me the second half is what scores for the book.sorry for being a spoiler but there is an actual courtroom drama that kind of took me by surprise .
So basically if I had any complaints about the book in the beginning, the second half kind of washed it all out of me.
The language and narration is simple and nice and as I mentioned the story plot was a fresh one so it provided for a good reason to pick up the book. My suggestion is to wait till the end as there are some tricks up there that you would not have excepted when you were reading the first half.
