it was amazing

Simply put, I love Shannon Hale’s style of storytelling. The more I think about this story, the more I just adore it. Hale’s writing transports me instantly to the setting. And well placed metaphors continually enhance the imagery. I was engrossed with the perfectly elaborated descriptions of characters and setting. Illuminating backstory is dispersed well and filled with integral, creative folklore. Hale is an amazing wordsmith.

Pacing and intrigue were well maintained throughout with a twisting, multilayered plot. And characters (especially the main character) were well developed with a nice arc of evolution and self-discovery. I love that the happy ending would not have occurred if the main character had not gone through the set backs and rough spots in the story. Isn’t that the best part about a fairy tale? That in the end, everything was worth it.
