Twice Upon a Time is the sequel to The Ugly Step Sister. Initially, Kat ends up in Cinderella's story as one if the "not so ugly stepsisters". In fact, the other ugly is actually stunning - on the outside. The book possessed a hundred year old goblin curse that was activated when Kat accidentally dropped it and the pages flew all over the attic. Kat tripped. She woke up in Athelia / storybook world. In Twice Upon a Time, Kat is Pulled back into Storybook world. This time though, Kat has lost her memory. Although you might expect they know what is going to happen, you would be wrong. This story takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotion. Although it is partially a love story, everything is a mystery. Ling has expertly kept the reader interested and surprised. I'm going to get book three now. Like the little goblin princess, I need to know what happens to Edward and Kat!

This is the third book from the series and I will have to tell you it's amazing. It's a romance fairy tale that will make you never want to put it down. I recommend this book for the readers who love retelling of fairy tales!!!

A sequal similar to the first book, but great to be back.Reviewed in Germany on July 18, 2020
As part of the series the book isn’t the best sequel, as it felt too much of the same because of the build up and choice of perspective (I'd have loved at least some in Edward's point of view). But all in all, on itself I loved the book and it was an enjoyable read, just like the first book. It was great to pick up where the first story ended, having Kat and Edward reunite and getting to know more about Athelia. And not sure if it was intentional (as the first book was a Cinderella retelling), but I could spot some similarities with Beauty and the Beast.

ConfusedReviewed in the United States on January 24, 2017
Okay loved the first book so i got the second book. Now I am a little confused. I am only about 30 percent into the book. In the first book Kat kept bemoaning that she wished she had a camera but that there was no cameras. Now when they get out of the carriage from their honeymoon there are cameras flashing. Then the all so sudden modern toilets and taps in the castle. A train takes them on their honeymoon. The way the first book made it sound was that they were way before any of these things were invented. So now why all of a sudden do they appear? I am hoping this book starts to get better but so far I am tired of listening to her repeat herself over and over.

Finding 'Happily Ever After' isn't always easy.Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2017
I really enjoy fairy tale retellings and this series is turning into one of my favorites. I was so excited when I learned the Ugly Stepsister would have a sequel ... I didn't want the story to be over for Edward and Kat. Twice upon a Time didn't disappoint. It did a good job of bringing a dose of reality into happy every after. Kat has to deal with the consequence of her decision from the previous book and even though she struggles to fit into life as Princess of Athelia, with Edward's help, she eventually finds her way... but that's when things really start going wrong. Kat's chosen a life that doesn't belong to her and by the end of the book, the odds seem insurmountable. I was left with two morals from this story: 1) when someone offers to give you exactly what you want, don't fall for it, and 2) never underestimate a jaded stepsister. If you enjoy fairy tales, this book is a good read. I cannot wait to see what happens next.

A Fun SequelReviewed in the United States on May 11, 2018
Even though it started out a little like a Disney sequel, I have to say I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one in the same "guilty pleasure" type of way. It was interesting to see if Kat would have reacted differently to Edward if she had more time to establish a life for herself in the real world (Spoiler Alert: She didn't.) I also really enjoyed the twist at the end of the book, and it made me eager to finish the trilogy.
