I never wrote anything about this book. I read it months ago. And I must say I was hooked from beginning to end.

I have issues with the heroine's arrogance and mean-spirited treatment toward the Prince. And her age... She's 18 and that makes it a little weird. Looking back, I feel as though it was a perverse read. The age difference makes me more uncomfortable now than I realized.

But it is a boldly written book. Ms. Ivory is a bold author indeed. Her other fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, was pretty audacious and bizarre, as well. (The window scene???)

So I can't say I won't read more of her books. And I actually recommend the book. I may have felt a little dirty after reading it, but it was an uncommon ride.
