Book Review: Rotten Rapunzel

Title: Rotten Rapunzel by Anita Valle (Dark Fairy Tale Queen Series #3)

Publication Date: September 20, 2017

Source: Purchased kindle copy on Amazon

Purchase: Kindle, Amazon Paperback, Barnes and Noble Paperback



Summary on GoodreadsI have been in this tower for fifteen years. Snow White has frozen me inside it 
and covered the rest of our kingdom with ice and snow. I can't remember what
summer is like. And I have never seen people or had a friend.
It's not fair. I'm a princess, the daughter of Cinderella. This kingdom belongs to ME. Not to the nasty new queen who's taken over. Snowy ruined my life, she
doesn't care about me. She only keeps me because I cry magic tears.
I have to escape. Have to take back the palace before my lost twin gets it. Have to punish Snowy for wrecking the kingdom. Have to make at least ONE stupid
friend. And I really have to do something about my hair.

Book Review

This book really grabbed my attention from the start. I have been a fan of the series since book one and must say the third book Rotten Rapunzel is the best by far. The writing and story combine beautifully with a compelling story from beginning to end. Like every book, the main character has a bratty/naughty attitude. No sugar and spice females head these series. Each character feels owed something and Rapunzel's no different. Treating Snow, her older sister, and caregiver as more of a maid than a sibling and parental replacement. Readers are taken through the process of Rapunzel at the start of the book and who she becomes at the end of it. Like each book, change does come in a variety of ways. Every chapter has an evolution to what will eventually be the conclusion. I enjoyed the first two books despite them not being five star level in my opinion. Anita Valle had written compelling tales no matter the faults. But this time I believe she has found the perfect balance between writing and story structure. Highly recommend to new readers and fans alike.

Oh and don't worry readers. A certain fairy will make an appearance, oh yes she will.

  1. Interesting twist. I assume she becomes just a little less vengeful.
