It was enjoyable to read but nothing stellar. The characters were under developed. Side characters were far more interesting than the main ones. The romance felt rushed. Love at first sight
and then on to the palace and the tests and then the end where love conquers all. I liked that she wasn't actually a princess but it did annoy me that they were willing to cheat on the tests. That never fit into the version of the story in my head. Overall, it was a okay retelling of a classic fairytale.
