What an unexpected and unique take on the story of Rumpelstiltskin! A lot of the aspects of this book followed the clichés of the genre, but sometimes you just need to read a book like that, and it can even be comforting!
I actually ended up enjoying this book a lot more than I thought I would. There was a lull in the first half where I had to remind myself there was some supposed twist coming, but the rest of the book sucked me right in.
This book had me hooked from the first chapter; I knew right away that I was going to love Alessandra.
I enjoy Seanan McGuire’s writing style very much- it’s probably one of my favorite things about her novels.
This author is definitely talented at keeping up a constant tension and making the reader wonder what will happen next. After the events that occurred earlier in the series, I honestly didn’t feel like any character was safe, and was ready for anything to happen.
I decided to give this book a second shot, partially because I couldn’t really remember what I didn’t enjoy about it the first time around, and also because the second and third books in the series have very high ratings
This book was such a pleasant surprise! I didn’t go into this expecting to like it as much as it did. There was nothing that bothered me at all, and a few unique things that made the story that much more enjoyable.
