Overall rating: 3.9
Although not graphic, there are references to violence against women contained in this book. Sexually suggestive content is also woven into the storyline so this fairytale reimagined is not for anyone easily triggered and meant for adult readers. With that said, this tale did not grab my attention as heartily as I am used to but the author took great care to develop the tale. My curiosity always gets the best of me with these retelling of classics for I enjoy the creative license each author takes. This is still a well written and creative tale easily read in a lazy afternoon. All my reviews are always voluntarily written.
Flight of emotions
Though not familiar with this fairytale I enjoyed this retelling. Penelope and Godfrey prove that with perseverance and love you can conquer anything. The story is filled with emotional strife throughout and lots of adventure.
I received an ARC copy and this is an honest review.
A wonderful retelling of a fairy tale
