The Miller's Daughter by Julie Wright – was boring and entirely non-convincing. The retelling brought nothing to the story, except tearing the magic down. Isa was horrible main character – she did nothing, was capable of nothing and just let the circumstances and other people dictate the paths and turns of her life. At least the princes in the original story was wise enough to outsmart the demon and the king. In this one, she played the part of Damsel in Distress, and the whole plan was by the love interest. Him – I hated for the way he treated Isa. He was so dominating and patronizing, and the thing he did to her in the end – deciding to act without even talking to her before… like she doesn’t deserve to be taken seriously. 2 stars.
The Pebbled Path by Sarah M. Eden – was the one of the stories I liked. I really enjoyed the way Eden changed the tale. I loved Hansel and Gretel as love interests. Contrary to the previous story, they both were true partners to each other. Everything they did – they did together with mutual trust and respect. In addition, I liked the magic, which was if not unique – intriguing enough. 4.5 stars.
Scarlet by Heather B. Moore – was a nice story with lovable mail character, grumpy brooding love interest, nice enemies-to-lovers trope and a much darker mood. I didn’t really get how the story can be counted as Red Riding Hood retelling, but it was enjoyable on its own. 4 stars.
So Rare a Power by Annette Lyon – was a pure agony to read. It was so bad I can’t find one good thing to say about it. The story has nothing to do with retelling, except renaming main characters (the purpose of which I cannot comprehend) and stripping the story of every interesting aspect. In overall, it felt like middle school book report of tell-in-your-own-words kind. 1 star. (the lowest rating I gave a story/book in 4 years)
Black Fern by Julie Daines – was as awesome as any other story by Daines I read before. The Beauty and the Beast is my most favorite Fairy Tale and this one was one of the best retelings I read. Like all the other stories by Julie Daines it was heartening, charming, magical and yet absolutely realistic and very very human. I loved Ros and Branan, their romance was lovely and very believable. I loved the addition of Wild Hunt mythology to the story as well. But the most I liked that in the end there were no transformation on Branan side. His scars didn’t go away, what chained was his heart and hers. For turning into pretty prince always feels like cheating. 5.5 stars.
Julie Daines' "Black Fern":
My favorite of this collection, "Fern" is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I have to admit to being disappointed in Disney's adaptation this year, since Beast is my favorite fairy tale. Belle was not who she should be--smart, compassionate, and kind. Instead, she was aloof and a bit unlikeable.
Therefore, I was looking forward to reading something closer to the true heart of the Beast story. Rós did not disappoint. She is brave, smart and kind--a true Belle. When faced with her family's starvation, she gathers her courage and knocks on the door of the most terrifying (and richest) home in town. Instead of being repulsed by the hideous resident, she wonders how long it has been since he has spoken with someone or felt the sunlight. She spends hours talking to him, cooking for him, helping in any way she can. Rós is not cowed by his temper either, and shows kindness in return.
With a highly original twist involving myths and legends I hadn't even heard of, this is not your average fairy tale retelling. And once again, it's my favorite Daines' story yet!
Eden's THE PEBBLED PATH:
Eden is a seasoned, smooth, original author. She always delivers a story I haven't heard before and this was no exception. Gretel sacrifices a life of servitude to a witch in exchange for her father's life. Hansel is a wood worker who stumbles upon Gretel in the woods and is intrigued by the mystery of Gretel's constant disappearances and her demanding mistress. With an ending both twisted and super awesome, I loved this story. Not one to miss.
