Once Upon A Broken Heart (OUABH#1) by Stephanie Garber - A review


Hello everyone!!

Today I am reviewing Once Upon A Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber. It is a YA Fantasy book and it is the first book in the Once Upon A Broken Heart series. The book was released in September 2021 by Hodder & Stoughton.

Well, Stephanie Garber did it again and I couldn't be happier. I loved this book and it made me love Jacks more. The book had everything, love, mystery and magic. 
It also had appearances of characters from the Caraval series that I really enjoyed seeing. I believe you can read Once Upon A Broken Heart without having read the Caraval trilogy as there are only tiny spoilers but you will enjoy it even more if you read Caraval first. 
Character-wise I really liked Evangeline Fox. She is brave and kind and believes strongly in the happily ever afters.  Jacks was not my favourite character in the previous series as I preferred Legend. After reading this book though, everything changes. The banter and the interactions between the two of them was everything.

All in all this book is magical and whimsical and I urge you to read it now!! As for me I just need book 2 asap.

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis of the book:
From Stephanie Garber, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Caraval, Once Upon a Broken Heart is the first book in a new series about love, curses, and the lengths that people will go to for happily ever after.

Evangeline Fox was raised in her beloved father’s curiosity shop, where she grew up on legends about immortals, like the tragic Prince of Hearts. She knows his powers are mythic, his kiss is worth dying for, and that bargains with him rarely end well.

But when Evangeline learns that the love of her life is about to marry another, she becomes desperate enough to offer the Prince of Hearts whatever he wants in exchange for his help to stop the wedding. The prince only asks for three kisses. But after Evangeline’s first promised kiss, she learns that the Prince of Hearts wants far more from her than she’s pledged. And he has plans for Evangeline that will either end in the greatest happily ever after, or the most exquisite tragedy…

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
