Yes, I love all things fairytale. And this book really is fun!
Honestly, this sat on my Kindle for a little while (and I read about 10 books between reading the blurb and getting to the book), which I think was a good thing. The blurb tells us who Mina's famous ancestors are, and I think that kind of messed with the way it's revealed in the story. But that's just me.
Very fun. I read it in a single afternoon. (And then started book 2.) Oh, and I loved the way she couldn't exactly escape the story she was trying to play out - particularly the way her clothes kept turning red. :)
My one complaint was that it could have used a bit more editing.
