The Royal House of Shadows is a four part series from Harlequin featuring four different authors heading up each story. This is an amazing series I'm recommending to all the PNR lovers out there. Each story has a heavy fairy tale flavor but with a much darker twist, I was hooked from book one. Our review for each of the stories is shown below:

I Smell Sheep is giving away all four books in the series, I've lovingly read these books but they are still in great shape. This contest is open to EVERYONE so to enter please list the following:

1. Your Email Address
2. What's your favorite fairy tale?

Contest ends January 11th at midnight
Good Luck!

  1. Sounds like an incredible series! It's hard to pick just one fav fairy tale -- I grew up reading a LOT of them. I guess I'll pick "Snow White and Rose Red", a German tale collected by the Brothers Grimm (not to be confused with the story of Snow White). I definitely follow this blog and my email is dani AT daniharper DOT com. Thanks for the giveaway -- and four great reviews!

  2. I favorite fairy is the Six Swans by Brothers Grimm.
    I follow this blog

  3. Thanks for this great giveaway!I think I like a lot of favorite fairy tales. But I think I would choose Snow White, it's always a pleasure to remind the story.

  5. These books look and sounds great. And there are some awesome authors contributing to this set. My favorite fairy tale? Hard to pick just one. I've always loved Beauty and the Beast. And then I also like Cinderella and the Little Mermaid. But I think Beauty and the Beast would be my favorite if I had to pick only one.

  33. I've been wanting to buy these books! I would LOVE them!

    My favorite fairytale was always Cinderella, because I felt like her growing up - I always thought my mom had children so she could have a slave. Close second is Beauty and the Beast.

  39. I was pondering getting these for soooooo long and now after Xmas I decided to get them and they don't have book 3 on German amazon anymore. O_O

    So yay- thank you for the chance. My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella but not the Disney version. We have one that's more of a Czech/German tale here. So much better in my eyes.

    I'm following you on gfc and I'm pretty sure i do that on twitter too but well am too lazy check right now. ;)

  41. My favorite has always been the Little Mermaid!
    I follow your blog on Twitter and my email is

  42. I love fairy tales. My favorite are Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. I can't choose between them. Sleeping Beauty because I think every girl would love to believe there's a man out there who'd be willing to slay a dragon and run through flames just to kiss her. Beauty and the Beast because I like how Beauty has to look past the beast and learn to love the man. And how falling in love helps the beast become a better person.

  53. I cannot say I really have a favorite fairy tale per se. If I can go with Disney's take, it would be 101 Dalmations - can't you just see all the little weres with spots running around to save the day Yep I like the concept. Thank you for sharing today and for the awesome giveaway opportunity. I think I have Lord of the Abyss in my kindle TRB, at least it is very familiar to me, will have to look it up and see for sure.

  56. I've read a lot of Jessica 'Doc Jess' Anderson before and really love her stories

  57. I would have to say my favorite fairytale (today) are going to be in two parts. I guess it’s a kind of a ying-yang thing. The first is Little-Toot, I’ll call it Ying. I listen to Little-Toot for hours on end as a kid. Over and over and over and over again. For those interested you can check it out on you-tube with this link and experience it for yourself And no I have no idea who the group is that posted it, but the story part is the same as the storybook and record that I had as a kid. The 2nd one, let’s call it the Yang, is The Tale of The Three Brothers. This may not be as old as some of the tales, but I think it’s an interesting story and a good lesson in the end.

  58. Sounds like a great series. Thanks for the giveaway.
    I think my fave fairy tale would have to be snow white, especially now with watching the show once upon a time.

  59. Sorry forgot my email address
