Dragonspell (The Fairy Godmother Dilemma Book 0) by Danyelle Leafty
Overall star rating --- 3.5
About the book:
A fairy godmother can never catch a break.
Nerissa should have been getting ready to celebrate another successful Happily Ever After. Instead, she has to track down her runaway DID—Damsel in Distress—who may or may not have been kidnapped by a dragon.
A dragon who happens to be a close, personal friend.
But time is running out. Her DID has attracted the attention of some very powerful winds bent on gaining their freedom—and they aren’t above using her DID to gain it.
So that’s one fairy tale temporarily on hold while Nerissa deals with a dragon, seven errant winds, and her DID.
Because if there’s one thing a fair godmother won’t tolerate, it’s an Unhappily Ever After.

The review --
The only character that I really liked was the long suffering fairy godmother. She got nothing but a raw deal throughout the book. The princess came off as selfish and inconsiderate, thinking mainly of herself and what she wanted. The other characters came off as somewhat selfish and mean. There isn't really any happily ever after to this book. It is a well written book, if you get into this type of story. It just never did really catch with me.
