The story is based on a Grimm's Brothers fairy tale, but not a well known one. The author has taken liberties with the story and, initially, the book is very slow to get into a decent story. The first hundred pages take place almost entirely in a tower and there seems to be a lot of redundancy. I nearly gave up the book entirely, but once you make it passed that part, it starts to pick up. By the final hundred pages, the story is exciting and kept me interested.
