I mostly enjoyed the story and the premise is really promising. The characters are all intriguing except the main character Myra who seems to have little or no common sense and was far too young for the storyline being just 15 with her love interest being in his early 20s. However the book seemed rushed and a lot of good storylines were pushed to the background for the sake of Myra’s naive perceptions. The ending of the story barely resolved any of the conflicts and this could easily have been rectified by adding just a few more chapters and wouldn’t have intruded too much on the story as a whole. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook and imagine it might be popular with Twilight fans but was too disappointed with the ending to deem it a good book
Thoroughly enjoyable entertainment. I did not have to ponder much about underlying messages or hidden meanings with this book...I was pure entertainment. I was only vaguely familiar with the original versions of the fairy tales and found the Sarah Cross to be quite adept at giving them a 21st Century flavor. The premise was quite ingenious and I found myself trying to guess who the characters were supposed to represent. I will definitely keep my eye on future novels by this author. Kim Mai Guest did a fantastic job representing the characters and enhancing the mental picture I created for each. This is a fine example the genre and I recommend it without reservation

I just love this book this is the second time listening to it and I still feel the same as the first time. I wish there's a sequel to this book if Felix comes back to hurt Mera.
