Random review quote:
“A fantasy adventure that’s as fresh and sparkling as spring water. It’s truly delicious.” — The New York Times Book Review
Verdict: The plot, the story, it’s really quite nice. Reminds me of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust. Yet, I found it boring at times. If you go for fairytale stuff, this is a nice read you can finish in one afternoon.
