I wasn’t a huge fan of this one. This was mostly just boring. It's kind of a retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs set in modern day and with very heavy religious overtones. More than a fairy tale retelling it's a mystery about a young woman being framed as a drug dealer.

The young woman, Blanche, seeks shelter with a bunch of Friars (the dwarfs in this retelling) who are trying to rebuild a community. There is quite a bit of "God will provide" and "This is happening for a reason determined by God" throughout the story. Waaayyy too religiously heavy for me.

The writing style is a bit awkward and unfinished feeling. The conversations between characters don't flow very well. The whole thing feels kind of choppy and was hard to stay engaged in.

I didn't read the first book in this series so that may be part of why I couldn't engage in the story very well.

Overall I didn't enjoy this and almost stopped reading it a number of times. I ended up finishing it because it's a pretty short read and it's be on my to be read pile for awhile...I wanted it to count towards my to be read pile reading challenge so I finished it.

I won't be reading anymore of these Fairy Tale Retold books; there are much much better fairy tale retellings out there. I definitely would not recommend this to fantasy fans or fans of fairy tale retellings. If you enjoy light romance with a drug-based mystery and lots of preaching then this is for you.

I really enjoyed this book! It was well written, the characters were down-to-earth so that the reader could relate to their feelings and motives, and it had that touch of Catholicism within its pages. I'm looking forward to reading more of Regina Doman's books!

A biography of Pope Benedict XVI told using the manga format/style. I found it a nice introduction to the life of Pope Benedict and it has made me want to read more about him.

The back of the book says, "What happens to the fairy tale if the prince fails?" I like this description because the prince in Rapunzel is different from the prince in most other fairy tales.

In this retelling of Rapunzel, Hermes accepts a dare to climb to the top of a stone tower on a neighbor's estate. He is shocked to discover that a beautiful girl lives in the tower and on her invitation agrees to return to visit her. The story is well told and engaging, in fact it keep me up until the wee hours of the morning. Every time I thought maybe I should put it down and go to sleep something would happen and leave me needing to know what happened next.

The story is a tale of forgiveness and redemption and shows what it takes to be a real hero.
