Wow this book, it was so good. It's been a while since I have read a book with magic and fairy tale elements. This book was just so beautiful. I loved the writing style.

The characters were great too, I loved how the story built and we got to see the magical elements and the forest elements in this book. It's so good I can't believe it took me almost a month to read it!! I really liked Jack, and Jenny they were really good characters. I knew I would like Jack from the moment he was introduced, and the way Jenny explained his eyes, and how they were different colours I kinda liked him then and there. He was interesting to read about and I wasn't expecting any of the twists in this book that happened when it came to Jack, he was just so different. That's what I liked about him.

Jenny as a character was interesting too, she was someone who knew what she wanted and would fight for it and she was strong when it came to the events that happened in this book.

I don't want to say too much about the book because that would spoil it and I want people to read this book, and Entwined by Heather Dixon that book also had magic in it.

It's definitely a book I will read again and recommend to people. I would recommend it to you if you like fairytales and magic in books. This was a great read for those things. I haven't heard much about it, but I wish more people would read it.

Please just read it, so we can talk about it!!
