An Experienced Writer, and it Shows
I came into this book expecting something enjoyable, but not to this level. I tore through all 400 or so pages in two days. It's difficult to specifically praise this book's finer points without giving away spoilers. There are very skillfully placed Chekhovs Guns all over the place, and the story does not fall for the trappings of disney-style Black and White Morality and Beauty Equals Goodness in the ways I was expecting it to, and wound up being a refreshingly progressive take on princess and fairytale tropes alike. It's a great read for kids and adults alike with a fantastic, satisfying ending—which is making me very nervous about the sequel. With such a perfect ending, it will be dificult to make a fitting sequel with a climax that can match that of the first book.
