really liked it

** spoiler alert ** I loved many, many things about this book. I think it will be the Cinderella story I think of first, like Beauty by Robin McKinley is the Beauty & the Beast story I think of first.

The fairy tales within the fairy tale were great; each story felt like I could dive into it all by itself, and it made the book as a whole stronger.

I don't know how I feel about Ash waking up not remembering her time in the fairy world. It feels a little like dubious consent to me, even though I know intellectually that she must have consented (to whatever happened, for how long it happened) at the time. It just hits a slightly sour note. I'm kind of sensitive on those things, though, so I'm happy to be told it's just me.

Just a fantastic book, and I can't wait for the next one to come out!
