This wasn't as good as I expected it to be. For some reason, my own fault I'm sure, I thought it was going to be more of a fairy tale. It isn't. It's a dramatic story telling, and if you approach it that way it's a good story. The art is amazingly detailed and expressive, and is definitely the stand-out feature of the book. The story itself just left me feeling like they were leaving something out of it. I wanted a little more backstory, or resolution, or something! It's good. Not great.
