Detailed review on my blog at navigatingneverland.org!

Anyone who adores fairy-tale retellings or fantasy in general will love having this book on their shelf. The story is interesting, engaging, and definitely a real page-turner. I couldn't put the book down. I know you will love it if you give it a try! A great book for children eight and older, but everyone will enjoy it! I look forward to more books by this author!

I really liked this book! It says middle-grade but I think it's more YA - there is some violent stuff in there. Not too gory, but I would rather older readers read it than grade 4-6. For instance, the giants eat people, strangle them, and wear necklaces of bones. The main character is actually 17 years old. Anyway, this is a retelling of The Brave Little Tailor, although the main character, Saville, is a girl. It's the author's debut work, and I think she shows a lot of promise, but there were parts that I thought seemed a bit disconnected. I think it could have been longer, and less vague. This book is a lot more than just a fairytale retelling. The main characters have a lot of struggles, and some things don't really get resolved. The characters are young but have to deal with violence and grief. I loved the romance. It's perfect - not too little and not too much. I recommend this for YA and Adult readers who like fairytale fantasy with some romance.
