Be careful what you wish for… Grace, Skylar and Alina are connected by destiny when an enchanted comet crosses the night sky. As their most secret ambitions ignite, their ordinary lives take a magical detour down a powerful but dangerous path.

Grace, emerging from her dejected childhood, develops the power to make men fall in love with her. Skylar leaves her impoverished past behind and pursues the social status she has always longed for. Without dreams of her own, Alina covets the power to unravel other lives and seeks revenge. As they crash into and slip away from each other in a cycle of envy, deception and love lost, these three women are forced to look deeper into their own hearts for the true meaning of enchantment.

My Thoughts
This book is for every girl who has ever gazed into a star-filled sky and wished...

The stories of tragic beginings turned magically assisted triumphs are filled with so much deceit, scheming, and betrayal that they are enough to give those made famous by Grimm a run for their fairy dust.
Grace, Skylar, and Alina are three women whose most secret wishes are destined to become the sources of their greatest power.
As the saying goes however, and as the three ladies will come to learn, "to whom much is given, mush is required."
Grace and Skylar are the two characters whose usage of their "gifts" seem to inflict the least damage.
Alina, on the other hand is a cyclone of destruction with no qualms whatsoever about unleashing  her evils on anyone in her path.  Most of all Skylar, the person  that she most wants to be.

Comparable characterizations for the three ladies from the land of fairy would be:  

Skylar as Puss In Boots
Just as in the case of her feline counterpart, Skylar is determined to talk her way into the money, power, and influence that she feels has always been her due.

Grace as Cinderella
Just as the lovely Cinderella believed herself to be unworthy of the attentions of her prince, so too does Grace. Gifted with the power of love spell, just as in the case of Cinder, Grace now has the power to win any prince.

Alina as Maleficent
Alina has a well-sharpened axe to grind and she is willing to use her power to destroy all whom she feels have wronged her.  Just as her evil doppelganger did in "Sleeping Beauty", she even manages to curse a party or two. 
This unique mix of Contemporary realism and the whimsy of Fantasy will captivate audiences from beginning to end.  The three ladies and their entwining stories provide someone to love, hate, boo, or cheer and never give way to a dull moment.
This book establishes Tina L. Hook as an author to watch.
