Publisher's Summary

Young Rhea is a miller's daughter of low birth, so she is understandably surprised when a mysterious nobleman, Lord Crevan, shows up on her doorstep and proposes marriage. Since commoners don't turn down lords - no matter how sinister they may seem - Rhea is forced to agree to the engagement.

Lord Crevan demands that Rhea visit his remote manor before their wedding. Upon arrival, she discovers that not only was her betrothed married six times before, but his previous wives are all imprisoned in his enchanted castle. Determined not to share their same fate, Rhea asserts her desire for freedom. In answer, Lord Crevan gives Rhea a series of magical tasks to complete, with the threat "Come back before dawn, or else I'll marry you."

With time running out and each task more dangerous and bizarre than the last, Rhea must use her resourcefulness, compassion, and bravery to rally the other wives and defeat the sorcerer before he binds her to him forever.

    "Creative Story"

    This was listed under the horror genre, it's not at all horror. It's more akin to Alice in Wonderland or Lemony Snickets, and definitely geared toward the young adult audience. Though it wasn't what I was in the mood for, I still really enjoyed it.

    "Great Performance"

    The narration was so good! A really fun story. I began reading the story from my Kindle but partially through changed to listen on audible. The story transformed. The narrator really brought it to life. I highly recommend.

    "SHE BELIEVED THE HEDGE HOG"

    SHE COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT BEING 15
    I greatly enjoyed this book, but understand that it is not for everyone. I am a big fan of fairy tales and that is what this is, including: Witches, Sorcerers, Glacier Monsters, Demons, Gremlins, Rat Speakers, Man Eating Whippoorwills, Bird Golems, Conjure Wife and a Clock Wife. Skim the top and you may think it cute, but down deep it can be disturbing. Their is plenty of humor, not LOL, but chuckle with an occasional laugh. Down deep it may have more in common with Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns.
    TIME IS A LARGE COUNTRY
    I thought the writer was clever and very entertaining. Narrator does an excellent job.

    I WOULD FOLLOW THIS HEDGEHOG INTO THE MOUTH OF HELL.

    Delightful story, skillfully read. Convince your friends and family to buy T Kingfisher books. Hopefully we can encourage her to write more.

    "My first T. Kingfisher book"

    I've followed this author's artwork for more than a decade and have long enjoyed her Twitter screeds but this is the first book I've read/listened to by her.

    I LOVED it but before purchasing I recommend that you are familiar with the author's "flavor", if you will. I often dive into fairy tale retellings for the ethereal beauty of them and if that's what you're after - sexy beauty and fantastical sexy drama - this is not quiiiite that. I'd describe it as warty, overrun with common sense, and more absurd than fantastical. If you know the author's style you'll know exactly what I mean.

    I would whole-heartedly recommend this book for preteen and teen readers. They'll get it, because the only person who hates bull* more than T Kingfisher will be the teenagers. Adult fantasy readers, make sure this is the escapism you're looking for! Otherwise it's going to be like expecting cherry pie and taking a bite of onion instead.

    The narrator does a masterful job and nails the main character's inner dialogue. If you're still on the fence I think the narration pushes it into go-for-it territory.

    Story
    "Lacking, Dull, and a Tad Annoying"

    I honestly didn't even finish this. I probably will one day when I'm truly desperate. The main character is extremely childish, the way the world is described is lacking all elegance, and the narrator's voice grates with every syllable. I took a chance on a lesser known book and (literally) paid the price for it. Please, go find a better written tale. Pass this one up.

    "Good story, well read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I enjoyed it thoroughly.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Rhea is a wonderful heroine. She's not particularly exceptional in any way, but she's considerate of others, she's relatively brave, and she has good sense. She's in an impossible situation but it's not her fault, and she doesn't blame anyone but the person who caused it. It's such a contrast from traditional fairy tales with helpless heroines and contrived situations that it feels like fresh air.


    Have you listened to any of Kaylin Heath’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but she did a very good job with the performance. She did a good job of giving the major characters distinctive voices without making them sound ridiculous.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I can't describe my favorite moment without reducing its impact, but there were many moments throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book could make a very interesting movie.

    "better than expected"

    I actually really loved this book. The story is darker than I thought it was going to be. The heroine was a breath of fresh air. She didn't whine at all and got the job done. Her tasks were interesting and not regurgitated like most books nowadays. All in all I would highly recommend it.

    "Good but creepier than I thought it would be"

    Really great story. Not very predictable. The main character was strong but naive. I will look for more by this author.
