I devoured this quick read in two days, while sick with a cold. This is a sweet book, a quirky take on the Cinderella tale, and a lovely story for any girl who has ever loved another girl. I particularly enjoyed the huntress character, whose self-reliance and confidence are not considered out of place in this fairy tale society. My only complaint is that the writing sometimes feels stilted and the world, while lovely and fairy-like, sometimes lacks for liveliness in its quest to seem like a fairy-tale place. However, I'm still going to check out the next book by Malinda Lo!
