Addie's story combines fairy tales with fact based historical fiction. Carefully blending the two creates a beautiful story. Addie is a lovesick teenager, but faces the hardships of the medieval time period. Ivo, her love interest, is an amazing counterpoint to Addie's spontaneous nature. The chemistry between these two is great. I loved how the simple story turned into a really amazing story with consequences for all those that Addie love. The beginning of the story is a bit heavy, but the depressing nature of the story really brings the story into context. I love the twists and turns of the plot. This retelling of fairy tales really makes for an amazing book.a
