    1. I love Melanie Dickerson, her writing is so unique, her books are so good. I can't wait till I read Beautiful Pretender it looks so good!


    2. Things I love about these books: - The storylines are woven and connected with a web, and it is fun hearing about the "happily ever afters" of characters from the previous books- The stories are clean and faith-basedThings I don't love:- The writing is simple, which makes them easy to read, but doesn't provide much depth. While the characters develop, I don't think it's a develop that changes me as well


    3. RESEÑA COMPLETA EN ESPAÑOLIn each book there is a new version of some famous stories including: Sleeping Beauty , Beauty and the Beast , Snow White, Cinderella and the Frog Prince. However, these versions are made to suit the times in which they are narrated, and therefore are very credible. In fact, the setting of each novel is so precise that one can imagine the scene perfectly.In addition to the romance there are some mysteries and twists in the stories that are not in the original tales. T [...]


    4. Five different young ladies fall in love during the medieval time period. Each story plays with a fairy tale plot line and includes romance and intrigue. All of the stories are connected by family ties, but can also be read as a stand alone story. Each story also has an element of faith woven throughout.I really enjoyed reading these stories. They seem to have a YA feel, but that might be because of the fairy tale theme. The stories are more realistic than the originals, but still felt like a ro [...]



    5. In conclusion: I liked it as much as I didn't. So I can't say it was terrible, but it'd be a lie if I say they're the best books ever.Was good for hanging out but wasn't memorable.


    6. The Healer's Apprentice: 3*. Probably my favorite of the series. Maybe that's because I read it first. It was sweet. The Merchant's Daughter: 3*. Much the same as the first. The Fairest Beauty and The Captive Maiden: 2*. I did take a break and read another book before coming back to these two. Yet I got about half way and didn't even skim, just jumped to the end to see what happened. The Princess Spy: Can't bring myself to start it. Will put in To Read and give myself some time.


    7. I'm sorry, but these books are terrible. every single one follows the same damn plot, and what a slow paced plot it is. boy meets/needs to save girl, girl is damsel suffering from some family member injustice, boy and girl fall in love but don't tell each other, boy and girl finally tell each other and get marriedch a waste of time and money.


    8. Wonderful journeyThis collection was so fun, it had adventure, comedy, and romance. It is nice to read books that tell a great story without all the swearing and without being scandalous.


    9. Absolutley wonderful So nice to read a Christian take on classic fairy tales :) You almost dont realize the you are in a fairy tale with how well Melanie interwove them, wonderful, wonderful stories. Can't wait to read more.


    10. Great readA series of short stories that captured my interest and motivated me to proceed from one to the next. Interesting history of the times and of the countries customs. Very good read.


    11. I loved the books they made my heart melt and she added the Lord to the stories and had the girls do a little bit of fighting



    12. Melanie is such an awesome writer! It is amazing how she weaves stories from classic fairy tales, creating her own stories – believable stories – and uses them to tell a story of hope, love and faith. She excels at creating realistic characters, even in her retelling of fairy tales that far surpass the good — and bad — in most people. I read this story — and I want to meet Gisela and Valten, Sophie and Gabe, Annabel and Ranulf, Rose and Wilhelm.Her characters are perfect – well writt [...]

    14. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Five of the most popular fairytales being re-written in a historical setting, no fairy godmothers, no magic, but a lot of faith in God. The first four books, The Healer’s Apprentice, The Merchant’s Daughter, The Fairest Beauty and The Captive Maiden were very easy to figure out which fairytale it was from.The Healer’s Apprentice was a retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with Rose Roemer, not much of a stretch there to see a parallel [...]


    15. I've been reading Melanie Dickerson's books since 2010 --Her fairy tale inspired stories are adapted into historical romance novels appropriate for teens (and adults) who enjoy sweet romance. Though a bit formulaic at times (such as slightly repetitive story elements), that is common in fairy tales themselves. Fans will love seeing her take on classic, well-known fairy tales.The ebook Fairy Tale Romance Collection bundles Dickerson's first five YA medieval fairy tale romances, The Healer's Appre [...]


    16. Melanie Dickerson takes on the re-telling of age old tales in her Fairy Tale Romance Collection.The Healer's Apprentice tells a new version of the story, Sleeping Beauty. This tale opens up in the year 1386 in Hagenheim, Germany. Rose and her friend, Hildy, are watching the parade that is welcoming home the Duke's sons. When Lord Hamlin's eye catches sight of Rose, his face instantly softens. You sense something exciting is going to happen! When Rose learns that he is awaiting his bride to arriv [...]


    17. The first book in the Fairy Tale Romance Collection is the book The Healer’s Apprentice. In this book, a twist of Sleeping Beauty, Rose falls in love with Lord Hamlin, the duke’s son. The message of this book, I would say, is about being independent but courteous. I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it for ages twelve through seventeen.The Merchant’s Daughter is the second book of the series. It was a spin off of Beauty and the Beast. Lord Ranulf le Wyse meets Annabel, and against all [...]


    18. Melanie Dickerson knew what she was doing when she started writing YA novels. All girls, whether 3 years old or 90 years old, want to be a princess!! In retelling these fairy tales, she has won over the hearts of many!In this collection, we have Melanie first book. The story of “Sleeping Beauty” is retold in The Healer’s Apprentice. We are introduced to Rose Roemer. She is an apprentice under the watchful eye of her protector. Of course, you are familiar with the story and can guess the re [...]


    19. About the connection between those books. Rose and Lord Hamlin (The Healer's Apprentice) are the parents of Gabe (The Fairest Beauty), Valten (The Captive Maiden), and Margaretha (The Princess Spy). And Colin (The Princess Spy) is the grandson of Annabel and Ranulf (The Merchant's Daughter). As much as I love this whole series (you'll know if you read my pervious review!), and I hope you'll enjoy them as I do. However, some of you may think it's horrible. But I'll provide some reading tips so yo [...]


    20. The Fairy Tale Romance Collection contains 5 fairy tales set in Medieval times. Each book may be read individually, but I would recommend reading them in order as they are connected. All of the books are set in the Holy Roman Empire, in Saxony, except for the Merchant's Daughter which is set in England. The Healer's Apprentice is a compelling story, with some twists that keep it from being predictable. The author pays great attention to detail, and I always enjoy learning something new about a t [...]


    21. OkayMy favorite of this series was The Fairest Beauty, all of the others have shuffled in behind that one on my favorites list. This one was lower on my list of favorites. I did appreciate the fact that this book tied in the Le Wyse family line with the Gerstenburg family. I didn't understand why we followed one family line in Germany for almost all of the series, and then had one book that randomly took place in England. But at least in this story they were somewhat brought together. Collin was [...]


    22. Such a a great series. Some of it was definitely predictable but not overly so. I love how the characters and plot are all fleshed out by previous books and how the story doesn't just end with, "and they lived happily ever after" because sometimes, we just need to know what happily ever after looks like and what comes after the wedding!I read these hoping to find something that my now 15 year old could love to read. I'm not sure how she feels about reading German words sprinkled throughout but I [...]


    23. Liked each book of the series a lot. If I were to read them again though, I wouldn't read them all together. I loved how each book was set in historical times based off a fairytale. Reading them all together though, the books started to each sound the same except for the last book. It became a little monotonous. Overall though I enjoyed the series.


    24. I Loved these books. They have so much love in them but not to much where its gross and mushy. I give theses books Five star rating. If you are debating to read them or not. READ THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!! ☺☺☺


    25. Absolutely loved these booksWonderful clean romantic stories. Fun take on classic fairytale with a good amount of suspense and adventure too. Highly recommend any book by Melanie Dickerson.


    26. Excellent Series! Well Worth buying!I so am enjoying the fairy tale romance collection. I have read 3 of the five and have had a hard time putting the books down! Great deal for the price! I have enjoyed it so much I will be reading all of her books she has written.


    27. Sweet modern take on classic tales Strong feminist roles with just enough chivalry to make them romantic. A light Christian thread runs throughout with the faith of these characters. Great read for teens.


    28. Three words: Great Medieval Romances.Medieval Era is my favorite. Each story containing different plots and twists, lives and love.
