About Table of Contents


Alex hates fairy tales. She always has. Alex has despised the notion of fairytales ever since her mother ran off with another man, leaving the girl and her father to rebuild their lives on their own. When she was little, Alex’s father taught her to be strong and independent, so that she did not have to wait for a man to do things for her. She took those lessons to heart and has done just that.

However, what will happen to Alex when she suddenly finds a mysterious book at the library and ends up drawn into the story, literally.

Alex must now live inside of the fairytales that she hates so much. She can't escape from them, no matter what she does. She has no choice, but to complete each tale, each task that the Keeper gives her. And along the way, she just might find a love for fairytales, or perhaps a prince.

"Hello, Alexis." That voice from before called out to me. "We have been waiting for you."
"Who are you? And why have you been waiting for me?" I called out frantically.
"I am the keeper of the tales. I have heard you through the years, girl. I know that you dislike the tales that others have worked so hard to collect. These so-called fairy tales. They are a vital part of growing up. They help children learn to process and cope with emotions through make-believe. They help them to learn and grow. Yet you don't think like that. You see only weak women that need to be saved by men. I cannot help that they were written in a time long since passed, but that has kept you from seeing the true beauty and meaning of the tales. Because of that, you must be punished."
"Punished?" I focused on that one word. "What do you mean that I need to be punished? What is going to happen to me? What are you going to do to me? A..am I going to be in fairy tales?" I just knew that this voice was going to say yes. I knew that I was going to be tortured to no end because of these stories.
"But of course." There was a chuckle in that voice that just wouldn't leave my mind. It was going to be there permanently. Every day for the rest of my life I would hear that voice, I just knew it.
"Why? Why do I need to be in fairy tales? What is the purpose of that?"
"The purpose? Well, I could say that it is to teach you a lesson. I could say that it is what you deserve because of the position that you have been taking your whole life. However, I simply think that it would be funny because you simply despise these tales. I think that it would be the best punishment for you given the circumstances."
"You're evil. You know that? You are evil and cruel." I no longer felt fear of any sort. Instead, I was feeling nothing but anger and frustration boiling inside of me.
"I haven't even told you the best part, Alex. These are no ordinary fairy tales. They will all be changed in some way. You may be visiting some of the classics this time, but they will be unlike any other fairy tale that has ever been told in your world. I think that is my consolation to you. You will be spared the same old boring tales that you hate and in turn, you will experience something new and exciting."

    HEY EVERYONE!! AUTHOR HERE!!! Hey guys, I hope you all give this story a chance. This is my newest entry on WebNovel as of May 2022. It is entered into the WSA2022 contest and I would love to see this go all the way! It's not your typical story. It's going to be way different from my other books that are on WN, but I think you're all going to like it. It's an interesting read and personally, I think it's super fun to write. Check it out, get to know the characters, and let me know what you think. THANKS!!

    WRITING QUALITY: I have no problems whatsoever with the grammar and language; and how the story is structured, as I am reading this as smoothly as it goes. STORY DEV'T: Our story main characters were being swept within this old, special book in which they were situated in every fairy tale that's being "re-engineered" by giving it a lot of twists and turns; that they are tasked with a mission for them to accomplish in order to make an ending of the story where they are in and at that, they would be able to get to the next story as assigned by their "imaginary guardian" who also "plays" as the book's custodian. CHARACTER DESIGN: Our main characters and the other supporting characters as well within each story give LIFE to the story's set-up and characters. Every character in every story, engages in different roles which are unlike than the roles in the previous story where they ended. WORLD BACKGROUND: Every fairy tale has its own setting as it is shown by the main characters' encounters/dialogues and also by the supporting characters interactions with themselves. UPDATING STABILITY: Updates are always done and so far the story is getting greater.

    Deni’s newest book has such a cool premise! Two people sucked into a magic fairy tale book and need to fix something in each story before moving on to the next one. The fairy tales are based on traditional tales, but that’s where the similarities end; each has a fun twist. It’s a fun read!

    I really liked it, although I thought there were possibly too many tales. I wanted to get to the ending faster. I might have skipped one or so. great ending, though.
