Editorial Reviews

Kimberly Heatherington
The main characters — who don’t compromise their distinctively Catholic moral principles, even when that choice presents hardship or risk — are likely to live in readers’ imaginations long after the last page is turned.
Litland .com
A 200-page book should be a quick read...Some books, however, just have more to say. Without a word wasted, Doman has given sufficiently rich detail..that we can feel we are there. We see in our mind solitary Rose playing an ominous tune on her violin in the middle of the park with the same fervor as the wind. From the beginning, the girls imagine that the human exterior merely covers up for a magical interior, and we are then swept through a fast-paced story full of emotion and suspense.
Steven McEvoy
This story is wonderfully told. The author draws you in and keeps you captivated from first page to last. Each chapter begins with a quote from the original fairy tale, and foreshadows what is coming, yet in New York the mysteries and magic of a fairy tale are very different from the German countryside. Regina Doman is a true storyteller, not just an author.

    I love this book and all of Regina Doman's Fairy Tale books. I

    I love this book and all of Regina Doman's Fairy Tale books. I love finding out that there are books out there with good messages and Catholic values. It really gives me hope to read books like these. I just about squealed with joy at reading the word "tabernacle" in a book I was reading for fun! (yeah I'm a Jesus nerd. It's okay.)

    Totally worth reading.

    Seriously awesome, this is a good book for teens. It has heavy Catholic/Christian influences mixed with a great story and interesting characters. It also has the unusual combination of classic poetry and a murderous madman. The plot is chockfull of unexpected turns, as well placed usages of dramatic iorny and dark forshadowings where you just KNOW something can't be trusted.
    SPOILER ALERT!!! If you are getting this for a kid, be advised! This book has a moment where one of the main characters is put in an awful situation, her boyfriend becomes drunk and tries to get her into a bedroom during a party. She ends up having to sneak out a window to avoid him. Nothing ends up happening here, but the danger of rape is clearly implied.
    I think the author handled it well, however, and was not at all a determent to enjoying this book. (I think it made me feel for the girl all the more.)

    Awesome book, read it

    This book is amazing the series is awesome you should totally read it, even though the beginning is the slightest bit boring it is the best series I have read so far. It is just amazing I think that everyone should read this book. You get close to the characters you second guess yourself on who you think the evil guys are and the books are really suspensful if the book became a movie it would be the america's real number one movie!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good

    This is a good intro to the series....Doman doesn't put to much of her own beliefs in. Not all atheists are bad and not all Catholics are great either, but it needed to be an atheist...otherwise he would've respected the Chalice and it's job in the Church...to hold the Blood of Christ.

    Amazing!

    The Catholic influences in this novel are not nearly as forced as some other Catholic books I've read. The writing is simply fabulous. There was unexpected theme of romance that came up amd I was pleasently suprised with the way it was presented. This is the first book I've ever read where the boy is proper age to date, completely respects the girl, and aren't constantly, well to put it quite franky, kissing. I also loved this book because it was a little bit of every cool category. There was mystery, hidden fantisy, suspense, action, and romance. So as both a bookaholich and a Catholic that is always hunting for good books, I highly recommend this.

    For parents: the only elemnt of the story you might want to watch out for is when Rose unwillingly goes into another minor character's bedroom and he trys to get her, well, to do some stuff ungodly. She senses the danger, and almost immeadeatly exits the room before anything even happens.
