I was drawn to this because I love fairy tales and it has a pretty cover. Darn those pretty book covers. The author did a good job of intertwining lots of different fairy tale ideas and there were parts of this that were brilliant, but overall, the characters were a bit wooden and the story was all over the place. It started out very sweet and Disney with a nice girl meeting a frog at a well, and then it got into dark magic and murder and ghosts and voices and blood, and occasional bawdy things thrown in. I guess I wasn't sure who the audience was supposed to be. I don't think I'll be moving on to read about the rest of the sisters in the series and I can't recommend it. I gave it three stars on Amazon. I paid 1.99 during a sale period, but currently the price is $7.55 or free to borrow with Prime.
