Why this book?:
I'm a fan of the author and series.
I especially liked the twist on the Rapunzel fairy tale for this one. From the depth in the background story as to how Giselle came to be in the tower, to a different look at the various figures (the father, the witch who owned the garden, etc.) and their motivations.
But the story really picks up and becomes it's own after Giselle leaves the tower and is left to find a way through her new life.
And it was great to see Rosa from Blood Red again.
