Review
Such a clever take on a classic tale! This book brought to life a whole new world of AMAZING!! An entirely unique story that had me loving every single page! Honestly... This story was extremely well written! I was caught from the beginning. Chapter one left me mystified... Chapter two left me wanting more... and after that... I was sold! If your looking for a book about a story we've all heard before, but taken to entirely NEW levels! Your gonna want to read this! There's so much I could gush about this book! There's the ever so sweet prince! The determined heroine! Even the beautiful on the outside ugly on the inside villain kinda grew on me. I can't wait to see what happens next in this crazy tale! So many possibilities!! I'm so ready for more!

  1. I definitely agree with you, Marissa Meyer is a great writer. I really liked the direction she took with this story, but I do wish that there would have been a little more romance! Hopefully that's coming!
