Kiss is another interesting fairy tale redo by Demelza Carlton. There is a prince who is, of course, cursed. He’s a frog (at least sometimes). The trouble started when this prince commanded one of his djinns to create an oasis. It drained the city’s water supply (this djinn has a terribly dark sense of humor and of justice). There is a princess. She is an assassin with no luck in the romance department. Should Anahita take a chance and kiss Philemon (the frog)? A familiar tale with some odd twists and an unusual cast of characters (even Aladdin drops by) make this an entertaining story.

Another great fairytale retelling by Demelza Carlton. I absolutely loved this retelling of the frog prince. The story captured me from the beginning and kept me enthralled till the end.
I received this book as an arc and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Overall rating: 4.7***
This fairytale retold could easily be read as a stand-alone, however I love how characters from other retold stories play supporting roles in others. Having that knowledge of their origins just enrich the tales even more. The creativity of the storyline makes it a magical experience to absorb page after page. It bothers me more to have to pause following the tale in order to complete one of life’s demands. Selfish me wants to pause real life instead! A joy to experience, I look forward to another tale retold. All my reviews are always voluntarily written.
