Amazon categorization for this book is misleading. It is a good book, but...
on September 2, 2013
I am rating this book as fairly as I can. I absolutely support the budding authors and their works that I find on Amazon for Kindle books. I buy a goodly number of them. I love to read and I truly love to read fantasy. I purchased this particular book due to it's high ratings given by other readers. Most people who read these books, I have found, understand that these are not professionally edited books and most are new works by neophyte authors so I tend to trust the majority and how they rate the books. I am rating this a four star because, for what it is, it is good. A good story, good characters, nice tidy plots...but it should be listed as young adult, if not children's book. It is written in the style of a fairy tale, and while I have no objections to fairy tales, they certainly serve a purpose in all societies, I feel misled if not betrayed by the genre purported to be this book's niche. It is certainly not written for anyone over the age of twelve (I may be stretching it) in my opinion. The author is worthy, the story is worthy, the category is not.
