Once Upon a Curse: 02/10/15

Once Upon a Curse by E.D. Baker is the third of the Frog Princess tales. Each curse Emma breaks seems to have further consequences. Her whole world is built on a foundation of curses. And now her aunt has fallen to the Green Witch curse, leaving Emma as the new witch and facing her own future doom.

So Emma decides she needs to go to the source of her family's curse. That means going back in time to either prevent the curse or learn the ingredients.

Emma's family curse is tied up in events very similar to Princess Aurora's curse. Rule one: don't short change a fairy. It seems like a simple fix, right? Let's just say the version of the curse that's been passed down the ages has been simplified.

This is the book where the series finally addresses what exactly the Green Witch does for the kingdom and the castle. It's also the point where we learn that the curse might be justified.

Four stars
