Why this book?:
It looked intriguing.
Um, I wasn't sure if I liked or disliked this book. In some ways, despite being a MG book, it reminded me of Seanan McGuire's Indexing books  which I really enjoyed. Fairy Tales have power, things aren't always as they seem, and people may be chosen to fill roles that they would not choose for themselves. I just had mixed feelings. And they were literally that - feelings - so I can't seem to explain them. Logically, I should definitely have loved this story. It is very much the type of book I've been into lately. Maybe it was timing? I think I'll read the next book to sort myself out. And because the more I think about it, the more I'm curious about what comes next.
