There are many different ways to look at a fairy tale, and what I loved about this story is that it looks at a fairy tale in a somewhat realistic light while still retaining the magic of the original.

But it goes further than the original tale. This is a whole new story based on one we already know. And within this new story, there is the retelling of the old story.

This is more like a classic fairy tale (thinking more Grimm's than Disney) with a literary twist. It's well worth the read. The ending isn't exactly "happily ever after," but it was still very satisfying.
