First off: While it was a refreshing rendition of Rapunzel, I was unaware of the Christian author and while it was subtle (actually incorporated gently into the story) I was a little put off by the religious additions. That said, I was glad it wasn’t overbearing, just part of the story that seemed mideaval enough to ignore. Still, I wish I’d know ahead of time. I don’t usually read Christian fiction as I am generally put off by the tone.
That bit aside, I felt it was well written, the characters had some fullness and the storyline developed smoothly. I probably won’t read any of the others in this group of books though.
