Very good quick read. It blends the traditional story of Hansel and Gretel with medieval culture to make a unique, fun, story. I received an arc and am voluntarily reviewing it.

Overall rating: 4.6
This is the most unique retelling of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale. I actually enjoyed the references to the three little pigs that appeared in this book. The ability to tie together the characters from different books is greatly appealing. Of course there is no cliffhanger but I do enjoy the tie ins that appear at the conclusion which gives you something to look forward to. Enjoyed the gender role dilemmas that these characters experienced. Highly entertaining, a definite recommend!
