My Review:

Wow! Melanie Karsak is a talented writer! She successfully weaves Shakespeare with fairy tales in this historical fantasy romance. She includes layers of magic and science, theater and real life. Your heart goes out to the characters and new ones get introduced along the way making you wonder how they all fit together. This also adds to the suspense and I found my heart thumping hard in different scenes. It's a twisted story that will keep you in knots until the end!

I recommend this book for older teenagers and up, because of the mature content.
