“Really disappointing. Unoriginal, derivative, and not worth the reading. I couldn't help comparing it to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and this books falls far short. Most of the characters are strong stereotypes, without any added complexity or depth to break them out of the stereotypical moulds. The supporting characters are particularly flat - the horrible stepsister, the feisty outcast and her best male friend who are the only ones to talk to our main character. I've only read that particular setup, oh, 30+ times. Really didn't care for the 'moral lessons in understanding other people' that were forced down the reader's throat periodically.
If, like me, you are a big fan of old fairy tales and gods retold and set in modern times, there are much better options out there than this one. ”
