Booklist Review

Starring the popular line of fairy-tale dolls, the Ever After High series has only gained in fame since its debut, The Storybook of Legends (2013). Here the focus is Duchess Swan, daughter of Odette, from Swan Lake. She's destined to turn into a swan at the end of her tale, but she wants to do more than just fulfill her duty, which would mean giving up her dream of becoming a ballet dancer and living the rest of her life as a bird. But not participating in her story would make her a Rebel, a character who refuses to follow his or her story line. She's torn between good and evil, and her class in general villainy doesn't help matters. There's a heavy focus on girly themes, such as princesses, froufrou dresses, and so on, as well as destiny, particularly the kind featuring a charming prince. There's a little leavening humor sprinkled throughout as well, and girls already in love with the series will likely crave this and future books by Selfors.--Comfort, Stacey Copyright 2015 Booklist
