Review by Kimberly Sonner

The Fairy Tale Keeper is a unique twist on the Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Part fairy tale retelling, part historical fiction, with well-written passages about 13th century Cologne and its problems with fevers where many died. Here 15 year-old Adelaide must battle against an evil priest, but seeking justice is not so easy. The Fairy Tale Keeper is a story of corruption, devotion, and tough decisions that may impact those Adelaide loves the most. Each character in Cefalo’s story is connected to a character in the Grimm’s Fairy Tales. We see the Elves and the Shoemaker, Cinderella, and Snow White.

I enjoyed reading this story and seeing how Cefalo connected the fairy tale characters to the story she created in Cologne. I will read more from Cefalo. I recommend this book for anyone interested in 13th century life or Grimm’s Fairy Tales.
