Publisher's Summary

Princess Raya of Paruth lived alone on a deserted island in a towering lighthouse, forgotten by time. With only a loyal albatross as a friend, she had little hope or joy in her life until he washed up on her shore in the middle of a raging winter storm.

Prince Trevor of Galder left his father and kingdom behind to travel north in search of a wife. It was time to settle down and forget Ella Carina, the woman who chose to love a peasant and follow her heart instead of choosing Trevor and fulfilling her duty to her people. He didn't heed the warnings about the North Sea in winter, and his ship, crew, and captain paid the price.

Raya and Trevor must work together to find a way off the island, or risk being trapped there for the rest of their lives. But sometimes the simplest lessons are the hardest, and each will have to learn that the only thing that can truly set you free is love.

Perfect for fans of Holly Black and C.J. Redwine, Unlocked is a unique and imaginative retelling of Rapunzel, set in the world of The Seven Kingdoms as seen in Riches to Rags (Cinderella) and Savage Beauty (Sleeping Beauty) also by Casey L. Bond.

Well-written characters, too little communication

So I really liked both Trevor and Rays, especially their time bonding while they were both on the island together, but there was too much "will they or won't they" nonsense. 80% of the conflict in the latter two thirds of the story would have been resolved if either one of them would've just told the other how they felt. The whole "both characters are in love with each other, but neither realizes the other feels the same and so doesn't say anything for fear of ruining the friendship" has been done too many times before; it's always obvious that that eventually they'll end up together. It wouldn't have been so bad if it didn't drag on so long, but it did.
Don't get me wrong -- this was by no means a bad book. It was well-written and I did enjoy it, hence the 4 start rating. There was enough interaction with secondary characters to keep things interesting in spite of the main plot point being cliché and drawn out and the first 3rd of the book was really good.
It was also nice to see Ella and Asher again and get to know Prince Cardan a bit too.
The ending also did manage to surprise me a little, though I won't spoil it.

I really enjoyed this spin on Rapunzel. It was a really fun story to read.
