Rumpelstiltskin has a reputation, but not one that he's overly keen to uphold at times. Now he needs Shayera Caron to perform tests in order to save somoene he loves, and yet there is a chance that he could end up in an even more complicated situation with her. As a siren, Shayera has tried to stay away from any man that is not a blood relative, yet there's something about Rumpel that draws her to him, even if she isn't too sure whether it is her, or her charms that attracts him to her...
Of all the ways that I saw a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin going, that was not it. Though there are some elements of the original in Rumpel's Prize, most notably the deals, this is a story all of its own and I liked that. Especially because following the normal tales it can be quite difficult to empathise with Rumpel, whereas in Rumpel's Prize made Rumpel not only easy to emphathise with, but likeable.
Rumpel and Shayera's relationship was complicated to say the least. There was attraction there, but for both of them there was something else. They appreciated and enjoyed each other's company and then moped when they didn't see each other. The banter and teasing between them came easily and made their friendship more believable.
I did spend most of the book wondering exactly what was going on. There were hints here and there but until the reader actually has the full picture some of them are hard to make out. I really enjoyed the not knowing, and not knowing how it would work out for the characters.
Rumpel's Prize was a great next installement in Kingdom, I am looking forward to more!
I won't give spoilers but basically take everything you ever new about the bad boys and girls from the enchanted forest and chuck it out the window.
This series will have you rethinking it all :-D
