Emma Swan’s life has been anything but a fairy tale. She’s been on her own since she was abandoned as a baby–that is, until the night of her twenty-eighth birthday, when Henry, a ten-year-old boy, shows up on her doorstep. He’s the son Emma gave up for adoption, and this surprise visit turns her life upside down.

Henry takes Emma back to his home in Storybrooke, Maine, where, Henry claims, all the residents are actually fairy tale characters who can’t remember their true identities. And if

Henry’s right, that means that his sweet-natured, lonely schoolteacher Mary Margaret Blanchard is really Snow White, the iconic princess … and also Emma’s long-lost mother.
In Fairy Tale Land, we meet Snow White as a bandit on the run, forced into exile by her stepmother, the Evil Queen. Snow’s a young woman learning to become a hero, who will do anything to live happily ever after with her one true love, Prince Charming.

The closer Emma comes to Henry in Storybrooke, the harder it is for her to ignore the dark curse that haunts this small New England town and binds her to Mary Margaret. If Emma can learn to accept her destiny as Storybrooke’s savior and break the curse, she just might get the family reunion she’s dreamed about her entire life.

ABC’s “ONCE UPON A TIME” is a modern adventure with thrilling twists and hints of darkness, brimming with wonder, and filled with the magic of our most beloved fairy tales.

Reawakened essentially tells the story of the first season in novel form, and promises fans of the show, “A whole new look at their favorite characters and stories.”

The book will be told from both Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin)’s points of view, and will feature both the Storybrooke and flashback storylines.

I am really excited about this book! I hope there are more details in it and not just the script written in readable form.

So if you are a fan of the show like me is this a book you are planning on reading?

    Not sure how I feel about a OUaT novel. I imagine it will be more detailed than the TV series because it’s a book and I’m sure it’s going to be somewhat different… I’m just not sure it’s a good idea. I’ll consider reading it and hopefully it will be amazing and my suspicions will be over nothing.
    I made this comment all about myself but I hope you enjoy reading the book when it comes out.
    Come check out my WOW post.

    Oh my friend is a huge fan of this show, I will be telling her about this. Great pick and thanks for stopping my Book Nerds today 🙂

    I had no idea about this one, so thanks for sharing it 🙂 but I don’t know if I’ll read it. I loved the 1st season of OUaT, but I really don’t like the 2nd one, that’s why. And the cover looks weird, but I hope you will enjoy it 🙂

    I’ve only seen an episode or two of Once, but I like the concept and I think it’s cool that they’re making a book for it! If I had to choose a favorite fairytale-‘remake’ series I’d pick Grimm though 😉
    Thanks for stopping by my WoW earlier!

Let me know what you think or if you have a question!
