Spindle Fire

Well, this was rather confusing a work. And one that I found to have really very little connection to sleeping beauty.

Although I liked the tone change, but it just wasn’t handled well at all. It didn’t remind me much of sleeping beauty at all, and I found the story to be dull and rather aimless.

Something very interesting has been the change and the cost of all the gifts she has. It costs her something in exchange for those gifts which I find a rather interesting exchange and include a lot of diversity.

But sadly, it failed to move me at all and the work needs a lot more before it can be convincing and even enjoyable.

And well, you can guess that I just didn’t enjoy this. I do believe that there needed to be more of a focus on the main characters and their intentions. Isabelle deciding to just help her sister and without her own character arc really made it really boring.

Overall, it was just the execution that didn’t make me enjoy this. Otherwise the concept was rather intriguing and some parts did entertain me.

    1. This seems to be the case. The only exceptions were And I Darken and Now I Rise, whose cover seems awesome and inside is awesome. The good books tend not to have good covers or mediocre ones at best. While the really bad ones, some of them have the Most gorgeous cover ever seen.

      Maybe it is to wrap up and make the work look nicer when inside is completely hollow.
