    What’s flight got to do with it?! Godfrey sweeps Penelope off her feet!

    Not really a fairytale that I remember, though there are shades of The Emperor’s New Clothes, but it’s packed with action adventure as Crusaders maraud and young Venetian noblewoman Lady Penelope grows uneasy over her fate. In a sea of possible suitors or ravishers, Sir Godfrey seems the only decent candidate despite his lack of power or high title. Forget the flying carpet; this gal snags a better ride! Not my favorite of the author’s revamped fairytales, but an entertaining read.

    I read a complimentary advance copy of the story; this is my voluntary and honest review.

    I really enjoy these Fairytale retellings. The stories are familiar but totally new at the same time. This one has romance and adventure and a hero who is totally honourable. Godfrey and Penelope are a great couple and this series is truely enjoyable.

    Lovely world-building with lots of promise but failed to deliver an entirely satisfactory tale as the narrative relied too much on telling rather than showing.

    I love her stories, this one has a touch of the Trojan Horse and the emperors new clothes wrapped into a love story.

    “Float: Enchanted Horse Retelling” by Demelza Carlton is proving to be a difficult story to describe or review. However, I requested an ARC and will offer my free and honest review. This story felt different from the others in her fairy tale re-tellings I have read. I had a bit of a time getting into it, honestly. But once I was in, it floated (smirk) along quite nicely. The characters grew on me, and I gradually settled into the world she was creating. I’m glad I persevered.

    Overall rating: 3.9

    Although not graphic, there are references to violence against women contained in this book. Sexually suggestive content is also woven into the storyline so this fairytale reimagined is not for anyone easily triggered and meant for adult readers. With that said, this tale did not grab my attention as heartily as I am used to but the author took great care to develop the tale. My curiosity always gets the best of me with these retelling of classics for I enjoy the creative license each author takes. This is still a well written and creative tale easily read in a lazy afternoon. All my reviews are always voluntarily written.

    Shaken by the horrors around him Godfrey sailed in a mission of vengeance and make things right. But the world was plagued of difficult decisions and evil so good intentions were not enough and when he had a chance to get what his heart wanted he took a stand. Lady Penelope was ready to take a chance with fortune and with her gifts she was more than eager to take matters in her hands. With enemies close behind Godfrey and Penelope were facing great challenges, danger and violence. Liked their interesting characters, the suspense, the magic and their passion. Some scenes were intense and made me think of the world injustice and lack of honor. Like the creativity of the author that made me want to read more stories. An interesting book that I liked and left me intrigued with some of the secondary characters.

    This was a super enjoyable, well-written story. Lady Penelope’s father has taken her to live in a convent for safety until he arranges a marriage for her. Sir Godfrey will do anything to regain his honor. He trains horses at his family’s estate, and when he comes across a magic horse, he volunteers to lead a crusade with it. Penelope and Godfrey cross paths more than once, and then join together to regain Godfrey’s honor and prevent war. This was another great story in the Medieval Fairytale series. I would recommend it to others and look forward to reading more books by this author.

    Demelza Carlton’s Romance a Medieval Fairytale series is wonderfully imaginative. At this point (it’s at Book 19 now) she’s pretty much used up the well-known tales but somehow finds new sources to twist into wonderful retellings. So now that 19th tale, Float: Enchanted Horse Retold, mines The Enchanted Horse story from the famed “The Thousand and One Nights” to give us a wonderful set of leads in Penelope and Godfrey who learn the same bottom line lesson: how love, rather than greed, leads to prosperity. Perfectly told, this is pure fun. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises. The book definitely deserves it. Since I can’t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read, and it is easy to highly recommend. I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series.

    This tale has a rather slow start. But, overall, it is a wild roller-coaster ride of emotions. Their are many brutish nobles. And a few noble nobles. Godfrey and Penelope struggle through nearly the entire, wonderful story. Well worth reading.

    I received a copy of this book as a gift. This is my honest review.
