✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Nutcracker Curse by Margo Ryerkerk

The Nutcracker Curse
Cursed Fairy Tale: Book 1
by Margo Ryerkerk 

12 days.
4 realms.
Break the curse.
Or turn into a nutcracker.
Princess Clara thought she knew the main threat to her freedom.
She was wrong. 
At seventeen years old, Clara isn’t ready to marry, and yet that’s what she must do as the crown princess of Austria.
However, getting to know the foreign princes visiting her kingdom becomes the least of Clara’s worries when she touches a bespelled nutcracker and unleashes a deadly curse. She has twelve days to feed the nutcracker the magical nut Crackatook. If she fails, her soul will become trapped inside the toy for all eternity and her body will turn to wood.
Instead of relying on her suitors or the king’s men to find the cure, Clara saddles her unicorn and sneaks out of the palace. Her childhood friend Philip notices her leaving and makes her choose between returning to the castle or allowing him to come along.
Reluctantly, Clara agrees to him joining her, and soon, they are off to lands filled with mythical creatures. 
Will they survive all trials and find the Crackatook in time? Or will Clara’s soul become trapped in the nutcracker and her body turn to wood?
Filled with adventure, love, magic, and a strong heroine, this clean YA Fairy Tale is the perfect festive read!

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This author never ceases to amaze me with her wonderfully written tales, and The Nutcracker Curse is just one more reason why. I've always loved the magical world of fairy tales, the good vs evil, a bit of romance, adventure - there's just something about them that entices me. This one has all of those elements combined with superb world building and interesting characters. All in all, this story of a princess who doesn't want to leave her fate in the hands of others, who takes charge of her own destiny, is a solid start to the series and I can't wait to see what this author has in store for us next.
