I've been waiting for this book to come out for a long time. I have to say it was worth the wait. Ms. Nolan has a gift with storytelling. She writes a very good twist to an old fairy tale but at the same time it's not just a re-telling of the tale. The characters were very believable. It is very interesting how the author lets you in on the different perspectives of the characters by switching between the main two teenage characters point of view. Ms. Nolan does a good job of drawing you into the lives of these two teenagers and how they deal with their budding relationship and the fight for their lives of being chased by a madman on the hunt.
