I really enjoyed this book, especially the parts around the political situations of the princess and the king. The princess is a very interesting character who has a little bit of badness, but is mostly good. She has an interesting part to play, and it will only become more interesting as the books go on. The understanding of the bad guys towards the end is a little odd still, and not very well explained with the relation to the whole universe. The bad guy being the same one from the fairy tale is odd, especially when what happened to him was so horrific it should have driven him to become as evil as he appears to be. I’m looking forward to more in this series.
