The story opens with an 18-year old girl, Rowena, getting ready for a costume party with her boyfriend. While at the party, she follows her younger sister into the forest. Rowena doesn’t find her sister, but instead finds herself falling into a deep, dark hole in the ground.
Rowena follows the path which transforms into another world: Mezzanine. It’s here she meets a young looking man, Chester. But the world isn’t as it seems to be. Hunted by a boy and a girl who they catch Rowena, drug her and hand her over to be two little girls’ maid in a castle. Rowena befriends another maid but as punishment of Rowena’s escape, Madeline, is forced into a coma-like slumber.
And who helps the escape? Chester comes to Rowena’s rescue and they flee back into the woods for cover, with the help from seven little men.
Just in the first half of the book, the reader is taken through so many great fairytales from Hansel and Gretel, to Cinderella to Snow White. Author Ms. Eccles spin and webbing of these fantastic childhood classics are a master piece so expertly woven into a great, fresh story.
As Rowena tries to flee Mezzanine and return home, Dresdem, Mezzanine’s wicked monarch, plans to use Rowena’s access to her world to bring magic and absolute rule into Georgia and beyond.
With the help of Rowena’s new boyfriend, Chester; Cale, a beast, and human boy turned, owl, Rowena sets out to free Madeline from the deadening sleep. But Rowena must become her own hero as she finds herself married to the son of Dresdem. She must make the ultimate choice – align herself with her enemies or live on the run forever.
I absolutely LOVED all the fairytales that were incorporated to make the storyline of Fabled. I remember growing up with Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, and of course other fantastic stories from Disney. Maybe that’s why I am a fan of Fabled so much.

Zoe Jabril could be just another 17-year-old girl attending parties with her friends and checking out cute guys—except her best friend is a Guardian Angel, and the boy she crushes on is a Nephilim, half-Angel, both sent to Earth to protect her. A high school classmate happens to be a trendsetting shopaholic Fairy. And now there’s a new Werewolf in town.
Zoe has to deal with her feelings toward Shay, who spreads a strange electrical current through her body every time he touches her. She is under constant attack from Demons, trying to kill and stop her from fulfilling the Prophecy: a girl will be born who will unite the Enlightens to battle evil. Then on top of that, between boring homework and drama with girls at school, she has to control new found talents if she’s to prevent the Devil from escaping Hell.
In order to do so, Zoe must devise a kick-ass plan ASAP or watch everyone die, because she’s running out of time. She turns eighteen in two months—the date Armageddon kicks off.
