From the back cover:

A very modern fairy godmother takes a young girl under her wing in The Godmother's Apprentice.

Dear Rosie,

Well, here I am. Ireland is beautiful, and Felicity Fortune's house is pretty nice. There's something weird about the pool, though, and the cat talks to me. I'm not kidding. Felicity has turned out to be an odd one too. She keeps disappearing, and I could have sworn I saw her dancing at the bottom of that pool. (Sigh.) I just wish I could get started on this godmothering stuff...

Sno Quantrill will soon get her wish. And the adventure of a lifetime...

This twisted, modern fairy tale is a lot of fun, like all the ones in the series. Elizabeth Ann Scarborough's writing shines with intelligence, compassion, and some hysterical scenes! A great read!

It took me awhile to fall into Snos' use of language, but once I did the story was tight, easy to follow and very, very interesting. I think there was a "prequel" but I haven't read it - this did NOT detract from the story in any way.

Not quite as gritty as The Godmother, but a satisfying book all on its own. Intruiging combination of urban fantasy and Irish history.
