  1. Summary

    Remember: stories are powerful. Beware the Forests. Kindness and cruelty have a price.

    Ivan is a third son of extremely rich and overbearing father. After causing great scandal, his father sends him and his older brothers on a Quest that will determine his heir:to bring him scale of a dragon, golden apple and hair of a Forest witch. Despite lack of love or understanding for family business, Ivan goes on Quest to prove himself and please his father.even if it means braving dangerous Forests that contain untold monsters and dangerous magics. In order to support his expeditions, he becomes a cook in restaurant at edge of Forest.

    From strange magic stalking his steps and guiding him down path of old tale, over budding friendship (or more) with his coworkers-intelligent and sarcastic accountant Anya and brooding, charming security guard Grey- to various threats inhabiting the town, mundane and magical, Ivan carves a new life for himself under guidance of restaurant's mistress, the mysterious and ancient witch manipulating the Story to happily ever after.

    But tragedy is sometimes just as pleasing ending to the Story.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Very nice combination of canon, original ideas and authentic myths. Authors are rather good writers.

    Summary

    Ariel would look back, almost a hundred years back, look back to her past and trace her sins and mistakes to that long-ago moment, to that desire to know more, to ask for more than what she was given. Ariel would look back with a thousand words that crowded her tongueless mouth, as the world turned underneath her bleeding feet and wonder to herself, was it truly worth it - all of it - to know what I know now?

    ***
