All in all the book is a decent read.
I like fairy tales written for adults, and eagerly seek them out whenever I can, but sadly find that many of those I read are dull, predictable, unoriginal, pale imitations of each other. This book, however, totally shatters that mould. This is inventive, original, lively, beguiling, and utterly charming.
I will not rehash the plotline of this book in my review...others have already done that, some of them rather too thoroughly (do not read the review written by reviewer 'Willow and Jasmine "Wren"' if you don't want the ending of this book spoilt for you.) But I will say, I thought this book had a LOT going for it. Realistic, intelligent characters, unique plot twists and settings, and surprises around every corner. The ending was perhaps a mite predictable, I'll grant you, but in a good way, and trust me, there are still many aspects to it that you definitely won't see coming. Personally, I was shocked by one of them, when what I thought was going to be a sugary metaphor turned out to be gritty reality. But I was pleased to be shocked...I like unpredictability and daring in a book. Bravo!
If this book is any indicator of Anne Logston's skill as a writer, I will definitely be reading more of her books in future. I would thoroughly recommend this book to others. It's not just a story about magic, it's a magical story!
