I laughed, I cried, I gasped! This fairy tale packs quite the punch, though it’s only novella length. A love story about the truth of love and freedom with laughter, dangerous twists, and a cloak that thinks it's a horse. Perfectly paced with fun characters and a few familiar tropes turned on their heads, I loved every moment of this journey. Perfect for fans of Stardust and Into the Woods!— Lindsey P.
