  • Trelystus rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

This book is heavy on romance and light on action. Aspects of Disney's original tale are prominente, but used in entirely different ways. The world Stacey Jay created for this new adventure was exciting and adventerous. There are some unexpected twists in the plot, and the ending was very refreshing. However, there were times were I found the book rushed. In the beginning mostly, but it was no major flaw. All in all, this book is worth a good read.
