I very much enjoyed this quick read. From the first page it is snappy with quick witted dialogue and sharp characterizations.The description is vivid without bogging the reader down in every tiny detail.
The fairytale setting had a modern feel to it, think Once Upon a Time and you'll know what I mean. The author very cleverly weaves in titbits from other stories flawlessly. Going in, I was sure I would know how this would play out since I know the tale. I was wrong and the author keeps the reader guessing fight up to the end.
