Una storia d'amore più travagliata di quella di Romeo e Giulietta da cui nasce una figlia, January, poi soggiogata magicamente dal suo tutore: delirante fondatore di una società segreta dedita a chiudere le porte tra i mondi.

A Spindle Splintered (Fractured Fables, #1) ♦ Alix E. Harrow | Review

In A Spindle Splintered, a delightful modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty, the predestined fates of two girls who are destined to die change as their paths cross.





A Spindle Splintered ♦ Alix E. Harrow

Opinion

One with a chronic illness that will probably not keep her alive until she is 22, and another destined to sleep forever. The parallels here were fantastically chosen.

While I really enjoyed the adventures of the protagonists, I was a little overwhelmed with the nature and explanation of travel into the fairy tales. That just couldn’t convince me.
I also found some of the characters a bit annoying, especially the main character made me roll my eyes more than once. I was really glad that it was only a short story.

But the messages in the story are clear: power to the women, because no princess really had to be saved. They simply took the reins into their own hands and saved themselves.

Conclusion

All in all, it’s a playful mockery of fairy tale clichés, complete with the obligatory happy ending, some tilting of uncomfortable fairy tale concepts, and enough heartwarming elements to make for an enjoyable read.

A Mirror Mended (Fractured Fables, #2) ♦ Alix E. Harrow | Review

The second installment in the Fractured Fables series of Alix E. Harrow took me into the retelling of Snow White. But it left me more confused at the end about the travelling between fairy tales and reality.



A Mirror Mended ♦ Alix E. Harrow

Opinion

Our main character could somehow beat her illness after she returned from her adventure in the first installment A Spindle Splintered, and she is even able to make it into another one, this time Snow White. The explanation of the whole travel system is still confusing to me, but so is time travel and astrophysics.… (mais)

This was a short, feminist retelling of Sleeping Beauty and I loved it. Its very easy to read and I was surprised by just how much story and fun the author managed to fit into this 100 something paged book.
