This book created a mood like no other book I have ever read. Beautifully told, it gives you the physiological story of Rapunzel, the witch, and of course, Prince Charming who happened to be named Konrad. Zel is a wonderful character capable of charming the reader's imagination in 5 seconds flat. The mother is the villian, an interesting twist of fate. She, like all bad guys, keeps the pages turning. However, the lust and love between Konrad and Zel is what incaptivated me the most. The book is a straightforward read. I loved it and give it a thumbs up. HOWEVER, there is some objectionable material, though not graphic, that should be taken into considertion before losing yourself in the pages of this enchanting book.
