I am a huge sucker for fairy tale retellings, but this book is just beautiful! I loved the characters, the humor, and especially the descriptions. With just the right amount of magic and mystery, I was unable to put this book down until its conclusion. Not to mention, the cover is just amazing! If you are a fan of George's other books, or fairy-tale retellings in general, this one will definitely satisfy.
Mostly intense situations, not violence.
Overall rating: ****
