Review by: Glad McGough on Nov. 04, 2016 : (no rating)
Themed similarly to the brothers Grimm 19th century folklore tale,s Sophie Nicholas has written a contemporary fantasy story that initially captures the reader with its gentle setting of Japanese beauty. However, the storyline plays out in a far more Gothic theme. Nicolas' writing skill promises her readers authenticity, honed from a determination to research the history and culture of her subject and to acquire a second language. In my opinion this author has an exciting future as a writer - Glad McGough
