Bleeding Through Kingdoms,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bleeding Through Kingdoms: Cinderella's Rebellion (Paperback)
This is a story with originality, and a fun read.
Written in contemporary, often tongue-in-cheek, style.
For example, when the little girl in red on her way to grandmother's house says she is Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella mumbles, "I should have seen that coming."
What if Cinderella didn't want to have anything to do with Prince Charming?
What if she ran away to another kingdom and rescued Repunzel from her tower prison?
What if the two girls traveled to other kingdoms in the Black Forest and met more than slightly different versions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and other fairy tale characters?
What if Cinderella's adventurous nature caused irreversible changes in Grimm's Fairy Tale world?
If these things happened, there could very well be a Bleeding Through Kingdoms.
I consider 3 stars to be a 'good' rating; and 4 stars to be a 'very good' rating.
A book would have to be 'exceptional' to get 5 stars from me.
