So I’ve just finished reading Cloaked by Alex Flinn


The story follows johnny, a boy who repairs shoes as a living because of the low income and security his mother and him deal with. However his situation changes as he comes across the beautiful princess of Aloria who is in desperate need of his help and in reward he shall receive a huge bundle of money as well as her hand in marriage. However the quest she asks of is not as easy as it may seem, as johnny is whisked into the magical reality of where animals were once human and witches are real and in search of him…

Cloaked is pretty much a modern take on a popular range of fairytales, mainly including ‘the frog prince’ and ‘the elves and the shoemaker’
It was a particularly light yet nice read, however I did find the plot predictable at times.

Therefore I give it….
