This was truly an incredible tale, amazingly read by the author himself. Truly, it's a breath of fresh air to hear such an original fable.
The pros: incredible story, and even more incredible narration. Very well developed characters, definitely scoops you up and carries you along with the story, never letting you down.
The cons: I am NOT a prude at all - I love a good sensual and sexy story. However, there is one scene in this book that was totally unnecessary and was even distracting to the story in my opinion. There was no need to have such a detailed sexual encounter in the middle of what is a fairy tale. It could have easily been written differently and the idea of what transpired would still have been conveyed. In my opinion, it took away from the story. It was the only thing that I found to be negative, but you do get over it soon after and are sucked right back into the plot and excellent narration.
My only regret is that it ended too soon - I definitely wanted more.
I *highly* recommend this book.
