Rezension

The #1 New York Times bestseller
A Goodreads Choice Award finalist
An Indie Next pick

"An explosively rich fairy tale that takes place inside an intricate world that's weaved with fast-paced plot and intriguing twists. Garber continues to show up with lush, atmospheric writing and charming characters that we can't help but want to journey with until their final scene." -BuzzFeed.com

"A magical confectionery mix of love, messy choices, and dreams of happy endings . . . There are lots full of great options for fantasy lovers, but Once Upon a Broken Heart is one of the most appealing, thanks to its constantly churning plot, its real sense of adventure, and the lovely heroine at the center of the story. Here's to seeing where Evangeline's journey takes her next!" -Culturess.com

"A sugar-crusted, poison-spiked romp through a vibrant world of fairy tale intrigue, tangled romance, and forbidden magic." -Cassandra Clare

"Shimmering with magic, Once Upon a Broken Heart is a wondrous story about my favorite thing: kissing. Not only is Jacks the swoony villain you've always dreamed about, but the decadent world will leave you breathless." -Isabel Ibañez

'"Enchanting, intriguing, and delightfully whimsical, Once Upon a Broken Heart grabbed hold of me and wouldn't let go. Evangeline is a cunning heroine, and Jacks never stopped surprising me. I couldn't put it down." -Brigid Kemmerer

"It's hard not to be enchanted by any tale Stephanie Garber chooses to write, with her masterful storytelling and her infuriating way of fooling with our pulse rates. A guileless, heartbroken heroine plays with fate incarnate-the bad boy Jacks-in the dreamy, topsy-turvy world of the Magnificent North. Once Upon a Broken Heart casts a spell that you won't soon want to be broken." -Stacey Lee

"A wildly imaginative, romantic story where true love and deadly kisses collide and bargains with the Prince of Hearts come with a steep price. Once Upon A Broken Heart is an unputdownable fairy tale where Garber's imagination sparkles like the magnificent North. Readers will delight in each whimsical and thrilling page." -Kerri Maniscalco

"A dazzling mix of mystery, romance, and magic." -Karen M. McManus

"Once Upon a Broken Heart confirms that Stephanie Garber is the queen of fairy tales. I stepped into her world and got happily lost in the delicious magic, deceit, and passion." -Mary E. Pearson

"The lush worldbuilding Garber is known for is on full display here. . . . The ending is a clear setup for a sequel, but no one will be complaining about the opportunity to revisit this intricately imagined world." -SLJ, starred review

"Garber enchants readers with exquisitely imagined worldbuilding and her trademark heady romance." -Publishers Weekly

"Garber, best known for her lush and poetic Caraval series, will no doubt have readers flocking to this new series. The potential for coming installments is huge, as the glimmers of a larger world introduced in this volume are sure to stoke reader curiosity." -Booklist

"A lushly written story with an intriguing heart." -Kirkus Reviews

"A sparkling story filled with adventure, broken hearts, and magic as one girl learns she's capable of more than she could have imagined. . . . If I had to pick a defining heroine for 2021, it would be Evangeline Fox." -MissPrint.com

One of my favorite books

Bewertung am 14.06.2023

Bewertungsnummer: 1960816

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

I loved the fairytale aspect of this story and couldn't put it down. I adored the main character and the love interest. He's my favorite character in the book. Also the tension in this book was so good. I loved it. This book took a lot of unexpected turns and was easy to read. I immediately bought the second book in the series and now I can't wait for the third book to come out. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy and fairytales and doesn't mind a romance sub-plot.

a very fairy-taley story

From the premise I had started off biased. The idea that the bargaining chip with a potentially dangerous being was kissing had given me the idea that the story was only focused on romance and love triangles or polymers. Until 30% I still wasn't entirely convinced because even though the falling in love was fictitious, the dynamic had the feel of a love triangle. once I got past that hurdle, I was hooked on the story, its mysteries and characters. But let's go in order. The book is set in a fantasy world. It seems that the continent is divided into a northern part that takes a bit of inspiration from a Nordic and Harry Potterian setting (cold climate, fairy-tale atmosphere, creatures like dragons, lots of legends and magic - with lots of shops selling potions and spell books and very fairy-tale names). Not having read caraval I can't say whether the setting was described in more detail in the trilogy, but I would have preferred more depth and cohesion. Perhaps a map of the whole continent where the events of Caraval and Once Upon a Broken Heart take place would have come in handy. I note that there is a map of the magnificent North (very nice and in fairy tale style) but not of the Middle Empire (southern part of the containing where the story begins). In short, world building is very interesting but lacks cohesion. The plot has a strong build-up (tension) and kept me on my toes until the end. I really want to know where and how it will end. The story is told in 3rd person by Evangeline, so it is one of those situations where you either like or dislike the voice of the protagonist. Evangeline is naive and stubborn, but the author in my opinion was good at reworking all the doubts and insecurities of the protagonist, because in the end I cared about her as well as all the secondary characters. The secondary characters I found them sufficiently characterised and many still remain a mystery, considering the length of the book, perhaps the reason why I'm interested to know more about them and what role they will play in the following books. In short, this story, the world and the characters are all shrouded in an aura of mystery, with Disney-style curses distorting the truth. Every piece of information is cleverly revealed to the reader drop by drop with a good balance between mystery and characterisation. It all contributes to building up this tension of wanting to unravel mystery after mystery and gives one a thirst for answers. Unexpectedly, I really enjoyed the book and devoured it. I will definitely read the second one. I hope the second one delves further into the world and setting, bringing us closer to the cause of all the curses and I hope Evangeline matures by learning from her experiences. Recommended! PS. Jacks & Chaos are in my heart. I hope a prequel spin-off is made about Chaos (unless this has already been done with Caraval).
