I like the book,however,toward the end, I sort of grew to not like it any more. It wasn't my typical type of fairy tale or young adult. Some parts were gruesome ,creepy and sometimes really annoying.The part about the huntress really put me off and I had hard time reading it. Maybe the problem was that I'd expected to read a fairy tale. I think the author hates fairy tales ,and that's why he decided to screw them up like this!
