There are witches, royals and common people living in Ever. Witches and royals dislike each other and common people are only there.
The princesses were spellbound. Each one of them lacks of something, this is called the Spell of Without, for example Princess Jane can’t eat.
At the thirteenth birthday of the youngest, Eden, the witch who performed the spellbound will return to tell them how to break it but they must not only break their spell, there’s another very powerful spell over Ever.
Besides, both princesses and the witch, Reagan, will reveal some jealously guarded secrets.
Judging by it’s cover we could think it is a lovely fairy tale but it’s not. It talks about eating disorders, sexual and power abuse, among others. And it’s a little bit raw.
Ever isn’t what it seems. The royals live in the castle and never go to town so they don’t really know about it or their subjects. This ignorance was impressive, also the story of Reagan’s grandmother.
I was annoyed when I read the sexual abuses that were silenced or the power abuse that caused all the damage that no one prevented.
I think this book can be read by young adults and adults. I recommend it.
