Overview

The mystery of Rosamund Hodge's Crimson Bound meets the romance of every Beauty and the Beast retelling.

An old tale tells the story of how a little man named Rumpelstiltskin spun straw into gold and tricked a desperate girl into trading away her baby. But that's not exactly how it happened.

The real story began with a drunken father who kept throwing money away on alcohol and women, while his daughter, Aoife, ran the family farm on her own. When he gambled away everything they owned to the Duke, it was up to her to spin straw into gold to win it all back.

With her wits and the help of a magical guardian, she outsmarted the Duke and saved the day.

Well almost...

Her guardian suddenly turned on Aoife and sent her on a quest to find his name, the clues to which were hidden deep in the woods, a moldy dungeon, and a dead woman's chamber.

Her feelings for one of the men who tricked her threaten to complicate everything. Not the tale of a damsel in distress, this is the story of a tenacious, young woman who solved a mystery so great that not even the enchanted man who spun straw into gold could figure it out.

Not until Aoife came along.

Twisted was a dark and creative re-telling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale. You know how so many fairy tales in their original form are tragic and scary? This felt original and authentic like those stories. It definitely wasn't Disney. None of the characters are great people. Not even the main characters. They all have made some pretty bad life choices. That was part of the story's intrigue though. As the story unfolds, many other stories come together in a pretty brilliant way. I hope this new author writes some more, because I would love to read more of her work. Twisted: The Girl Who Uncovered Rumplestilskin's Name by Bonnie M. Hennessy was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
