I really enjoyed the retelling of this fairytale. I found our heroine a bit irritating in the beginning but it adds to the overall story and there is a reason for her arrogance. I wish I could find more books like this one. This definitely is not a delete and will go into my re-read pile! If you like fairytales in the true sense of the word, you will love this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Myles' retelling of King Thrushbeard (or The Stork King) is a sweet, romantic and exciting tale. Rinda and Alek are both terrific characters with great chemistry; with her sharp tongue, Rinda could easily be unlikable, but she is actually very sympathetic. Plus, the lack of explicit sex is a nice chabge of pace from the glut of erotic romances on the market.
My only complaint is that the book needed a second more thorough edit. There are quite a few typographical errors.
I hope Myles tackles more fairy tales in the near future. The Scarecrow King is highly recommended to fans of Kathryne Kennedy, Gail Carriger, and teen girls in search of an admirable heroine. -- lyradora
