Resigned to her new life as a witch and determined to make a success of both that and her business, Jinx has a lot to learn. She sets out to both study her craft and get a true direction for her aunt's haphazard approach to inventory. Not to mention the fact that she wouldn't mind getting to know neighboring business owner Chase McGregor a lot better. Although Jinx can call on Aunt Fiona's ghost for help, the old lady is far too busy living a jet set afterlife to be worried about her niece's learning curve. That sets Jinx up to make a major mistake and to figure out how to set things right again.

There's only one thing standing in her way. Well, make that a whole family of obstacles ... and one ticked-off FBI agent. When cousins Bay, Clove and Thistle vow to stop their great-aunt's wine endeavor in its tracks, Aunt Tillie is forced to come up with a unique solution. In order to keep her great-nieces out of her hair, she curses them into a book of fairy tales. Of course, because it's Aunt Tillie, these aren't normal fairy tales. They're the fairy tales she created - with a little inspiration from the classics. Now Bay, Clove and Thistle have to work their way through a labyrinth of stories they haven't heard since they were kids - and they have to take Landon, Marcus and Sam along for the ride. Will Bay get eaten by bears? Will Thistle kiss a frog? Will Sam climb Clove's hair to rescue her from a tower? And, better yet, will Landon turn himself into a prince and slip a glass slipper on Bay's foot? Each task becomes harder as the story progresses, and as the tales darken, things start to become dangerous. Can the Winchester witches survive Aunt Tillie's twisted mind? Or will they be lost in a book forever?

Xander Miyamoto should be feeling great. It's the beginning of summer vacation, his mother has returned from a long absence, and he has learned that he is a warrior with special powers. Xander never would have guessed that the old Japanese folktale about Momotaro, the hero who sprang from a peach pit, was real, much less part of his own heritage. But instead of reveling in his recent victory against the oni, monsters bent on creating chaos, Xander is feeling resentful. What took his mother so long to come back? Why does his father insist on ruining the summer with study and training? And why is Xander plagued by nightmares every night? Maybe this whole Momotaro thing is overrated. Xander's grandmother gives him a special baku charm to use to chase his nightmares away. He just has to be careful not to rely on it too much. If he does, the baku will not only take his dreams, but those of everyone in the house, forever. Without dreams, there is no hope, no motivation, no imagination, no Momotaro. And then it would be far too easy for Ozuno, king of the oni, to wreak havoc. . . . On his second quest, Xander explores new surreal landscapes, encounters more strange and dangerous creatures, and faces even higher stakes as he learns whether or not he has what it takes to be Momotaro.
