While lying in the hospital in a place called Kansas, Princess Dorthea of Emerald struggles to regain her memory of the events that propelled her out of the land of Story—and to remember how to get home.

Meanwhile, in Story, Rexi, with the help of Excalibur, continues to gain confidence in writing her own tale as she fights to save the land from the Wicked Witch. But as is always the case with evil villains, she is not to be underestimated.
Can Dorthea and Rexi save their home while protecting the prince they both love from getting caught in the crossfire?

There's so much to love about this trilogy. Starting with the covers; they're shoes but they're significant and tie-in! You know that moment when the title makes sense? That's what you get with the shoes on the cover.
That's another thing to love, that shoes are such an essential part in all three stories. I'm sure Dorthea wouldn't have it any other way.

Not only do we get a dual point of view this time around, but two separate stories in two different realms. I've seen a few comments that mentioned not liking the separation but I really enjoyed the switch up. Although it is too bad that we don't get to see the two characters together since I loved their banter in the previous books.
Though we do still get banter, Rexi wouldn't be Rexi without it.

Rexi is still my favorite and I loved seeing her continue to grow and get a happy ending. Dorthea's story was just as great because it's a new twist especially after all the fairytale mash ups we've gotten in the past.

This was such a fun trilogy and will definitely be a long time favorite of mine.
