Okay so I have quite a few thoughts. First and foremost I want you reading this to know that this book is a queer historical fantasy retelling of The Nutcracker, and doesn't that sound pretty awesome? Yes.

I'm on a short / novella kick and this one really hit the spot. The Nutcracker has never been a thing for me but this story was utterly delightful. I loved the prince and Clara was so sweet. Better still, the ending made me so happy for both of them.

Great book!
