Are you ready for an epic fantasy that twists all the conventions of fairy tales? Pick up a copy of Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Regan Barnhill.
Princess Violet isn’t like the princesses from fairy tales – she’s plain, reckless, clever, and loves to tell stories. One day, while exploring the castle with her best friend Demetrius, Violet stumbles upon a hidden room where she finds a forbidden book. This book tells all about the Nybbas, an evil being said to be trapped in her world. When she accidentally allows the Nybbas to escape, Violet must team up with Demetrius and the last dragon in order to stop the Nybbas’s evil plot.
