Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

Synopsis: The Nutcracker is back—but so is the Mouse King, and now she must choose between them...

No one believes Marie’s story about her magical journey with the Nutcracker Prince. She’s even started to doubt it herself. But then her brother Fritz brings his fellow cavalrymen home for the family’s annual Christmas party—and one of them demands she return the Mouse King’s seven crowns to him. The Nutcracker finally reappears, and the familiar battle lines are drawn, but is Marie on the same side she was before? How can the Mouse King be so intriguing, and the Nutcracker so disappointing? And when Marie’s niece Clara disappears, can she trust the Mouse King to help get Clara back—or is he still set on revenge?

If you’re into villain redemptions and fairy tale retellings, if you find Labyrinth to be a very intriguing film, if a book needs to have fencing, fighting, revenge, giants, chases, escapes, true love, and miracles in addition to kissy bits to hold your attention, then you’ll love this fantasy novel. Revisit everyone’s favorite holiday fantasy, and learn who the real heroes and villains are!

My Review: This is a fantastic retelling/continuation of The Nutcracker. I really love that Marie didn't want to be with the cowardly Nutcracker aka Drosselmeier's nephew who had the audacity to kidnap Clara and take her to the Kingdom of Dolls. Marie and Lang (the Mouse King in human form) team up to go save her. I just wanted this book to be longer and I seriously can't wait for their story to continue next year. 

Rating: 4 stars
