Myths of Mish
by Katie Hamstead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received this book free in exchange for my honest review
Oh this was a treat, I'm a sucker for fairy tale retellings., and I was not disappoint! Like the first this book was rich in design, characters and of course the galaxy.. just wow!
I won't say all to much, because I don't want to spoil anything.
But my god, I was sucked into this book and I couldn't get out. It was like a vortex and I loved every minute of it. I loved the intertravle, the evilness and of course, how good conquers all. There is so much good about this book, about this world, that I will be reading everything there is to written about it.
I have to say, the twist at the midway point had my heart in a vice grip. I loved Wilhelmine, she was strong, smart and just bas-ass. She is what a female lead should be like. She was not at all the damsel-in-distress type. She embraced who she was and didn't let anything stop her from coming out on top.
The only thing I didn't like, not about the writing or the over all story, just the way Hansel treated Wilhelmine. He was a complete ass, and at times I wanted to smack him up-side the head. But it all works out in the end, even if I wasn't a fan of his at the start.
Gretel, she was quite the girly girl. She actually reminded me of my girl cat. She was annoying, but showed her true colours at the end, she grew up you could say. She went from a winny little brat, to a smart, confident woman.
This book actually takes place before the first, it was interesting to read, and it makes you wonder what happened between the time this adventure took place to Apolline's. I'm hoping there will be more in-between, more mysteries to uncover, and want happened to the planet Mish. Being that this book does take place before Princess of Tyrone there are a tone of easter eggs, so in truth, reading the first is a must, but you can read this one first. There aren't many spoilers, but at the end you will get a pleasant surprise.
In all I highly recommend this book, it's everything you never knew you wanted in a fairy tale.
