The first three books of the Twisted Fairy Tale Series are now available in this box set! Includes Thread and Spool, Wolves and Paths, and Frogs and Princes.
Thread and Spool: Cursed with the ability to weave thread into gold, Brie has learned to trust no one. Her parents keep her around so they can gamble their money away and now her boyfriend’s only staying because he’s got a collection of game systems to grow.
When Brie grabs the attention of Stilt, the new guy in town, it changes everything. Brie is a Legend—a character in a fairytale—and she belongs in a realm of magic called Fable. But when she crosses over to the new world with Stilt, she soon learns that the cruel ruler of the realm has taken an interest in her ability-and it could cost Brie her life.
Stilt promises that he can help her escape, but in return, he asks for something that she might not be able to give. Can Brie put her trust in Stilt or will she die at the hands of greed?
Wolves and Paths: Sometimes there’s more to the fairy tales than you think…
Red has only ever known a life under her oppressive grandmother’s thumb and she’s struggled all her life to break her fear of rebellion. But when her boyfriend, Tate, wants to take her to Disney World (forbidden by her grandmother) she can’t help but break the rules. But maybe her grandmother was right to warn her against the place, because the park is a gateway to another dimension: Fable, where fairy tales are real and things go bump in the night. And now her grandmother has been taken captive by an evil magician named Alric.
Red turns out to be the central character in a very scary story, a tale she will have no choice but to act out in order to save her grandmother. Worse, Alric is determined to rule Fable by making all the famous fairy tales fall—and Red is his first target. Red, along with Tate, must venture into almost certain death and learn to break the chains of her fear. But on her journey, Red will learn that even the most famous fairy tales are not always what they seem…
Frogs and Princes: Candice hates being the rich girl in town and the fact that the most irritating guy in school, Shorty, has a huge crush on her. That, and she can hear frogs talking, something she’s always had to hide.
But when a frog begs her to save him from dissection, she steps in, starting a chain of events that land her and Shorty in Fable, a world where the fairy tales are real. It turns out she’s a princess, and the frog she rescued is meant to be her prince. But he’s far from a happily ever after. He’s a huge jerk, and if she doesn’t free him from his curse and agree to be his bride, her kingdom will turn dark and fall into the hands of the most powerful dark wizard in Fable.
Candice must face her identity and make an impossible decision. It also turns out Shorty’s got secrets of his own, secrets which might destroy them all.
These are the first three books in what will be a seven-book young adult fairy tale retelling series. A new volume releases each month on the 15th.

Holly Hook grew up with a strange fascination with natural disasters, especially tornadoes. She would spend her adolescent years watching storms, writing about them, and searching for young adult books that combined weather with fantasy. Frustrated that these books did not exist, she decided to write them years later. The result is the 5-book Destroyers Series, the first of which is about human hurricanes. She is also working on the Deathwind Trilogy, a spin-off of the Destroyers Series, and the Timeless Trilogy.
She lives with her two cats and her twenty-four tarantulas.
