This is not your mama’s ‘Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses’. Craig seamlessly weaves a beloved fairytale with mythology. Though the characters could be one sided at times, it was truly an unputdownable tale. It was delightfully creepy, with just enough twists and turns. Some of the plot twists were easy to guess, others not so much. I do wish we had spent more time at the balls, and with her other book ‘Small Favors’, I felt the ending was rushed, but neither of these points ruined the integrity of the book.
Moderate: Death, Death of parent, Animal cruelty, and Child death
Minor: Vomit and Blood
Though death is heavily mentioned, said deaths never are described in explicit detail.
