The Rat Prince

the-rat-princeWritten by Bridget Hodder

This is a clever take on the classic tale of Cinderella. It follows the familiar story, but with a few twists. You can tell this is Hodder’s first novel, and I would have liked a bit more character development. There is a beheading, but it is quickly mentioned with no gory details. Other than that, it was very enjoyable and all fairy tale fans will be in for a treat.
