In this world Snow and Aurora are sisters, which wasn't too difficult a leap for me, as it fits with older versions of the story in which Snow White and Rose Red were sisters (The story for which Sleeping Beauty is based.) and I liked how it pulled from the old version in which Rose Red's future husband was a prince cursed by a witch and turned into an animal.
But it didn't start with that part of the story, and those who only grew up with the Disney version would be hopelessly lost where this serial picks up.
On top of that, they took one of my favorite princesses and kind of turned her into a dabbler-in-the-dark-arts who ends up letting her own greed destroy her happily ever after... or at least, that's where I suspect the story is going. I really don't know.
There were a few anachronisms that really pulled me out of the story. I had a hard time picturing the world in my head. On one hand it has the fantasy elements: Capes, princesses, princes, castles, villages, magic and more; on the other it has parks, coffee, and sewing machines. It doesn't really feel like urban fantasy, but like the opposite of UF. In UF, the goal is to take the modern and boring, and introduce the fantastical to pull us out of the modern and boring. But to me, it felt like they did the opposite. They took what made fantasy awesome and injected it with the most boring parts of modernity. I hate reading women's lit where the female lead is lamenting how it's not fair that she can't get pregnant/ have kids, and she turns her world upside down driving those she loves away with her sole quest of what comes so easily to others.
That's what they did to Aurora.
Women's lit meets fantasy might be the perfect mash up for some of you, and if it is, go ahead and give War and Pieces a try. This first one is free.

Thoughts: Ooooh, serials suck, way too short and seem to stop in the middle of a scene. Which of course means that as soon as I can I will be binge reading this whole thing. It didn’t stop in the middle of a scene but damn, it sure felt that way. And of course has me wondering when I can do the binge reading lol. Snow White’s sister, Rose is married to the King’s brother, Snow’s husband. Rose is desperate to have a child, to the point that it’s obvious that something bad is going to happen… and we find out nothing in this episode but I look forward to what could potentially come!!
Beware, once you start these episodes, you won't stop.

I tend to avoid serialized books with a couple of exceptions as it costs more ultimately thatn buying a longer book.
It was certainly an entertaining piece with a new look at fairy tales of old. I liked the fact it is set after the original Snow White etc stories but I'm a little uncertain about carrying on the series. I think I will try more out though as it definitely held my interest.
I would recommend reading it but getting the full series when it comes out as one book rather than buying the episodes separately.
