I'm not a fantasy fan; hard SF is more my forté. I saw some friends talking about this book on Twitter and thought I'd give it a whirl. I am glad I did! The reimagining was well done, and the story relied much more on character development than on the zombies. I could easily empathise with the characters. The Prince was trapped in a Greek drama; Fate in the form of his father, keeping him from his True Destiny. Cinderella was an accidental heroine mostly due to her pragmatic approach to life's ups and downs. The story keeps moving; it's a light read, but one I didn't want to put down.
Summary: I'm a hard SF fan, but the writing here is so good that I found myself wanting more at the end. Well done!
