blog 'The Innocent Flower'.
I have to admit I was a little disappointed with the style of the writing at the beginning. The story didn't hook me like I hoped it would. While the story seems a little contrived to me (Christina "Cinderella", has to complete a mission to get what she wants), I have to admit that about halfway through I had to continue reading - I couldn't physically put the book down and completed it that day.
My favourite part was definitely the ending. Be warned, if you like fairytales for their endings, this book is not for you. If, like me, you sometimes want a little grittier, realistic, ending, then I can promise that this book will fulfill that need.
I'm not sure if I can recommend this book (especially to those outside of the USA as the postage cost nearly as much as the book itself) but believe that if you are looking forward to something a bit different, perhaps you should download the ebook and let me know what you think.
