Description

How can a fairy's blessing be such a curse?

At her birth, Ella of Frell was given a foolish fairy's gift the "gift" of obedience. Ella must obey any order given to her, whether it's hopping on one foot for a day or chopping off her own head

But strong-willed Ella does not tamely accept her fate. She goes on a quest, encountering ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, fairy godmothers, and handsome princes, determined to break the curse and live happily ever after.
