I found the beginning of this book a bit too full of interpersonal drama but it had me hooked by the end as more characters and plot emerged. The author mixes in Grimm's fairy tales with her own twists on the classics and the resulting book is a fun read. It felt a bit slow and disjointed at times but was still worth reading and made me want to read the sequels.

This is a nice, quick read. It's funny and irreverent, and has a very fresh and unique look at fairy tales and the mythology of princesses and the damsel in distress.

This book definitely packs a lot of action and humor into not very many pages, and I love the powerful, kick-ass heroines. There are also some overtones of more serious themes, such as rape, grief, loss, etc. so this may not be suitable for some younger readers, but I think that most young adults will really enjoy it.
