A fairystory containing elements of all the old favourites reworked into a single thread. Fairly simplistic and easy to read. ( )
I adored this book. So interesting and well written!
It was a clever story, but probably could have benefited from some more editing. It read a bit like a High School Senior's creative writing project. A very talented high school senior who's teacher probably took pride in the student and made special suggestions as to what college program to get into or helped said student to enter writing contests, but still student work.
This little book was a delightful surprise: a dark, slightly twisted revision of the classic Grimm's fairy tales with an original new character holding the strands together. It's beautifully written, and the central character, although fairy-tale simple in some ways, won my heart. Definitely recommended.
Great noir thriller told in traditional fairy tale style. Really enjoyed it.
Deep within the Wood, a young woman lies dead. Not a mark on her body. No trace of her murderer. Only her chipped glass slippers hint at her identity. The Woodcutter, keeper of the peace between the Twelve Kingdoms of Man and the Realm of the Faerie, must find the maiden's killer before others share her fate. Guided by the wind and aided by three charmed axes won from the River God, the Woodcutter begins his hunt, searching for clues in the whispering dominions of the enchanted unknown. But quickly he finds that one murdered maiden is not the only nefarious mystery afoot: one of Odin's hellhounds has escaped, a sinister mansion appears where it shouldn't, a pixie dust drug trade runs rampant, and more young girls go missing. Looming in the shadows is the malevolent, power-hungry queen, and she will stop at nothing to destroy the Twelve Kingdoms and annihilate the Royal Fae...unless the Woodcutter can outmaneuver her and save the gentle souls of the Wood. Blending magic, heart-pounding suspense, and a dash of folklore, The Woodcutter is an extraordinary retelling of the realm of fairy tales.
