Review #48: Golden- Monika Pardon
Author: Monika Pardon
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Well that's a lie, I actually won this book, but my review will still be honest.
This is the debut novel by Monika Pardon and was it ever the debut. Before I read th book I didn't really know what it was about, I hadn't read the synopsis, but I was pleasantly surprised. At first, I was thinking yes, it's a modern re- telling of Goldilocks and the three bears but it's so much more! It turns into a very literal fairy tale.
The books main character Sonora (I have no idea how to pronounce this name, hopefully just like its spelt) is awesome. First she saves her cousin from ragging bears and it only gets better from there. Sonora soon realizes that her ice is not what it's seems. Then there are the hot Farr twins who you don't really know what dpside they are one, or if they are evn on the same sides to other very end of the book. There are a ton of other great charters involved wheter good, bad or ugly. There are evn a few tricksters in there making you believe one thing but being something totally different in the end.
Overall this was a pretty good book. At one point in the book I felt like the book hound have either been about Goldilocks or Fae, not both. I got over this fairly quickly. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fairly tales or if you are looking for a lite read.
Thanks Monika for the donation that lead me to this awesome read.
