I really like fairy tale reimaginings, and this one had a lot of potential, but I'm afraid it was really predictable and obvious. The lovers weren't that interesting either, and of the other nine noble ladies gathered, we only get to meet two , and t ...more

Besides being a cozy romance, and a wish-fulfilment fantasy for home rehab addicts, this book is also unexpectedly psychologically complex and dark. It really finds new ways to revive familiar serial killer tropes. That happy ending is earned!

This book was beautiful, profound, poetic, and moving. I'm very glad I read it. I wouldn't have selected it for myself. This is why book clubs have a lot of value.

Katherine Addison
“He remembered the moment when his thoughts had inverted themselves—that shift from not being able to please everyone to not trying—and the way that change had enabled him to see past the maneuverings and histrionics of the representatives to the deeper structures of the problem; it was the same with the Corazhas.”
Katherine Addison, The Goblin Emperor

Katherine Addison
“ 'In our inmost and secret heart, which you ask us to bare to you, we wish to banish them as we were banished, to a cold and lonely house, in the charge of a man who hated us. And we wish them trapped there as we were trapped.'

'You consider that unjust, Serenity?'

'We consider it cruel,' Maia said. 'And we do not think that cruelty is ever just.' ”
Katherine Addison, The Goblin Emperor

Elmore Leonard
“Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”
Elmore Leonard
