Audio Book Review: Fantastical by Kristen Ashley

(Fantasyland, Book 3)

By Kristen Ashley
Narrated By Tillie Hooper


Cora Goode has woken up in a fairytale world where she can understand what birds are saying to her, men ride horses and have fluffy feathers in their hats and furniture zigs, zags and whirls in miracles of construction.

The problem is, she thinks she’s in a dream but she’s actually taken the place of the parallel universe Cora and without realizing it, our Cora does something that starts a centuries old curse that will sweep the land if she gets captured by the evil Minerva.

At this point, her dream world becomes a nightmare.

Luckily, hot guy, fantasyland Noctorno is there to save her from the clutches of the grotesque vickrants sent by Minerva to capture her. Unfortunately, hot guy, fantasyland Noctorno doesn’t like the Cora of his world all that much (to say the least) and he thinks our Cora is her. And no matter what our Cora says or does to try to convince him, he won’t be convinced.

But Cora needs Tor to keep her safe and guide her through this fantastical world as she hopes one day to wake up in her not-so-great apartment in her not-so-great life in her world. The problem is, the more time she spends with the gorgeous warrior Tor, the faster she falls in love with him.

Viviana's Review:
I was extremely excited when I got my hands on this! The audio release was delayed but for a great reason and it was WORTH IT! This is book 3 in the series and a great continuation. With that said, this can be read as a standalone, though I suggest you read the previous books because they are GREAT!

While the blurb tells you exactly what the story about, but its the journey and what you discover along the way that makes this an awesome read. Cora is a heroine that jumps in and takes action. She doesn't coward when things get tough. Her reactions to learning about her life in the fairytale world is funny...she keeps it real! This is one of the things I LOVE about Kristen Ashley's writing style!

Speaking of Kristen's writing, love how she creates these characters that are true to themselves regardless of the circumstances. You as the reader can relate to the characters and fall for them. She also describes their world in a way that makes you want to live there!

All the characters are well developed and continue to grow as the story moves along. Speaking of characters, Noctorno, aka Tor, is one hot, sexy hero! An alpha but not an ass.... Because there is a difference.

Narrator Review: I was pleased to learn that Tillie Hooper would narrate the entire series. Not only for consistency purposes, but she truly adds to the story. Providing different voices and tones to the characters making the story easy to follow and giving the listener a joyful experience.

Overall, this was a great read that I highly recommend! You truly get transported to a different and magical world!

Rating: 4 Stars - I LOVED IT! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Audible in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
