“Screw you,” I said.
Bogeyman Jack nudged me. “Good fairies don’t swear in front of children.”
“Are you two fighting?” Billy asked.
“No,” I said>
“Yes,” Bogeyman Jack said.
“Mooooooom! The tooth fairy is beating up the bogeyman!” Billy hollered.
I gave the bogeyman one more kick in the shin before I left, feeling satisfied with myself.
*Thank you NetGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Mira loved her job as a Fairy Godmother. The luxuries and status of being assigned to the prominent Charming family was a pretty nice bonus too. But all that wealth and reputation came crashing down on her pretty, purple wings when she was caught getting hot and bothered in a closet with Prince Charming.
Demoted for the affair and labelled a sex-addicted, degenerate Charming-molester. Mira has been keeping her head down, working as a common tooth fairy for the last ninety-nine years.
This certainly is an interesting and original concept. Every fairy tale creature you could think of, from Frog Princes to cupids, dwarfs and bogeymen, and of course tooth fairies and Fairy God Mothers, all work in bureaucratic office-like jobs, complete with the typical identical cubicles and strict uniforms differing on their Division. In a modern world where one wave of a wand could magic your problems away, is still subjected to the relatable stifling rules with no rhyme or reason, and plagued with corruption.
Wrath of the Tooth Fairy explores all these subjects and has fun doing it too. The downside however is that Mira is stuck on the self-pity train that made her a little hard to connect with. When she does, thankfully, start to come out of her world and see the issues and people around her, it was a sigh of relief. From then on, the story started to gain some much needed traction to move through the plot towards this story’s conclusion.
All in all, this was a fun, imaginative and noteworthy read, filled with self-discovery, friendships and romance. Where Wrath of the Tooth Fairy leaves off paints a far more compelling continuation to come and I personally am looking forward to seeing Mira in her new role with her fresh outlook on life.
