A fantasy novel inspired by folklore and fairytale, this novel was interesting to read once the bondmaid legend had been established. It took a while to get going, but I warmed to the characters and thought the plot was tied up well. Although there were some instances that were drawn out and confused the plot more than necessary, I nevertheless found this to be an intriguing read and unlike anything I had read before.
