In the format of a middle grade book, this fairytale for adults takes you on a journey you won't expect.
The story was fun and I liked the unexpected twist. Martek is my favorite character, so strong and smart he is.
Martek and Marianna are so sweet. It was their story I wanted to read about.
The 'Good VS Evil' thing was just okay for me. Often I thought the story got out of sorts during those parts. Two focal points in one story when all I wanted was the romance.
Not the best fairytale I have ever read, but certainly not the worst either.
