THE PRINCE looks like he’s from another time entirely, or maybe he’s just too good at his job at Ye Old Renaissance Faire . . .
THE ACTRESS is lighting up Hollywood Boulevard with her spellbinding and strikingly convincing portrayal of a famous fairy. Her name may be big, but her secrets barely fit in one world . . .
With Pietro’s help, Crescenzo sets off on an adventure to unite the real life counterparts to his figurines. It’s enough of a shock that they’re actually real, but the night he meets the Girl in the Red Hood, dark truths burst from the past. Suddenly, Crescenzo is tangled in a nightmare where magic mirrors and evil queens rule, and where everyone he loves is running out of time.
Reminds you of Hook in some ways- especially when in the first chapter it’s revealed that Pino(cchio) and Pietro (Peter Pan) are neighbors and are struggling against some dark forces at work in the world. Pino’s older with a teenaged son and seems to be reverting back to his original form. Peter’s a recluse who’s own wife (Wendy) and son have gone missing. Not a bad start.
