Publishing on Amazon/ Kindle Unlimited allows many writers the freedom to publish their books how they want them to be published rather than within the binds of traditional publishing. Unfortunately, that means many books on Amazon go under the radar. I have not read these 5 books t tell you how good they are but they have caught my interest and I would like to check out. Here are 5 fairytale retellings available on Kindle Unlimited.
A Captive of Wing and Feather: A Retelling of Swan Lake by Melanie Cellier
Princess Adelaide has been missing for years. And that’s exactly the way she wants it. Haunted by her past, not even the curse that entraps her is enough to make her long for her old home.
But her past finds her anyway, in the form of a handsome prince from her childhood. Adelaide doesn’t want to let Gabe in, but a sinister force is spreading fear throughout her new kingdom, and only Gabe has the will to help her. Adelaide can’t refuse his assistance–not when the evil might soon ensnare much more than a solitary princess. But with her friends and her new kingdom in danger, even the help of Gabe and her seven swans might not be enough.
In this reimagining of the classic tale, Swan Lake, the trapped princess must find the courage to overcome her past if she has any hope of turning a tragedy into a happy ending.
HEARTS: A Dark Wonderland Retelling by Klarissa King

Rose only ever wanted a quiet life as a blacksmith in the small village of Crooked Grove. But all that changes when the rebels attack the small Hearts village and she’s thrown down the well. Only, the well opens up to the Three Sisters and leads her to the Hatterthon–a deadly game of murder and survival.
If Rose ever wants to make it out alive, she must be more brutal than any other player. Keep calm, collected and cool. That’s her rule. But Night, the mysterious player she’s allied with, threatens all she knows with his dangerous smiles and even deadlier eyes.
How far will Rose go to escape this murderous game?
And as she soon learns, in the Hatterthon, everyone is a little mad…
The only way out is to win. By any means necessary.
Heart of the Fae: A Beauty and the Beast Retelling by Emma Hamm
When a plague sweeps across the emerald hills of Uí Néill, leaving a young midwife’s father with months to live, Sorcha makes a deal with a dangerous Fae to save her people. She must travel across the sea, through merrow and kelpie lands, to find a forgotten king on a crumbling throne.
Born king of the Seelie Fae, Eamonn fought battles unnumbered to uphold honor, duty, and freedom… until his twin brother sank a blade between his shoulders. Crystals grew from the wound, splitting open skin and bone. His people banished him to a cursed isle for his disfigurement, where he now rules as a king of criminals and fools.
With the help of brownies, pixies, and will-o’-the-wisps, Sorcha battles to break through his crystalline shell and persuade him to take back his stolen throne. This determined beauty could come dangerously close to stealing his beastly heart… if his enemies don’t kill her first.
The Dark Woods Series: Books 1-3 by Sherri A. Wingler
This isn’t your grandmother’s fairytale.
In the old days, people whispered about the wolf, said he came only at night, and only by the light of the full moon. They locked their doors and huddled close to their fires, safe in the knowledge they could prepare for his coming. The truth is, no one is safe, because the wolf walks in the skin of the man. Always.
Harlow Hayes is a runaway, thief, and failed Southern belle. Forced to grow up fast after what her mama delicately referred to as, ‘the incident,’ she learns the hard way not all strangers are kind, real monsters hide in plain sight, and family can be found in the most unexpected places.
Harlow Hayes is about to meet the Wolf.

Traitor’s Masque: A Retelling of Cinderella by Kenley Davidson
She has one job—attend a masqued ball and dance with a handsome prince.
What could possibly go wrong?
Everything, that’s what.
After years of submitting to her stepmother’s unreasonable demands, Trystan finally has a chance to be free. The promise of a new life, in exchange for her help. Simple, right? After all, the old woman has only asked for one night. One night, one beautiful gown, one dance… and one message to be delivered to a mysterious recipient.
It should be easy. Maybe even fun. Especially when she can slip away into the night after the dance, leaving no clue as to her identity.
But before she can escape the ball, Trystan makes a shocking discovery that leaves all her hopes in ruins. She will be forced to confront two very different princes—and choose whether to betray her kingdom… or her heart.
If she’s lucky, maybe she’ll even survive to tell about it later.
