Hello, you wild romance fanatics, you! I see you there, lurking in the depths, waiting for a new story to sink your teeth into. Lucky for you, this is my stop on the Escapist Book Co. tour of Wild Azure Waves, the third installment in Leslie O’Sullivan’s Rockin’ Fairy Tales series that mashes up your favorite fairy tales and Shakespearean works. This time, we’re looking at The Tempest meets The Little Mermaid, and what a wave of emotion (and spice) it was!

Join FanFiAddict’s Tori Gross and author Megan Van Dyke for a chat about Megan’s debut novel Second Star to the Left, romance in fantasy, where she got her start, a deep discussion of craft, what she does in her (limited) free time and much more.
Overall, I really loved Second Star to the Left and I cannot wait for the next book in the Reimagined Fairy Tales series! The subtle ways in which the author changed the core characters to meet the narrative were the perfect choices to tell the story she wanted to tell. A beautifully written love story is at the core of this novel, but surrounding it is grand adventure, found family, and pirate ship battles. Can you think of a greater pairing?
