 As soon as I saw The Evil Queen on NetGalley, I absolutely knew I had to read this book. A new Gena Showalter novel? Sign me up! Captivating from the start and enraptured with every page of the book, The Evil Queen is everything I’ve come to expect from Gena Showalter. 

Everly is snarky, just how I love my heroines. With her sarcastic wit and quick intelligence, Everly’s personality enchanted me. In all honesty, I loved all of the characters including the “evil” ones. The Evil Queen shows how thin the line between good and evil is, and how quickly the tables can turn. 

As always, I’m impressed with Showalter’s world-building. The great attention to detail gives such a spectacular idea of what Enchantia looks like. So, in case I haven’t made it clear, I highly recommend this book!! I’m already impatient for the next in this new series. 


Book Blurb:



Far, far away, in the realm of Enchantia, creatures of legend still exist, magic is the norm and fairy tales are real. Except, fairy tales aren’t based on myths and legends of the past—they are prophecies of the future. 

Raised in the mortal realm, Everly Morrow has no idea she’s a real-life fairy-tale princess—until she manifests an ability to commune with mirrors. 

Look. See… What will one peek hurt? 

Soon, a horrifying truth is revealed. She is fated to be Snow White’s greatest enemy, the Evil Queen. 

With powers beyond her imagination or control, Everly returns to the land of her birth. There, she meets Roth Charmaine, the supposed Prince Charming. Their attraction is undeniable, but their relationship is doomed. As the prophecy unfolds, Everly faces one betrayal after another, and giving in to her dark side proves more tempting every day. Can she resist, or will she become the queen—and villain—she was born to be? 

The battle between good and evil is on.
