4.0 out of 5 starsA Terrific Short Novel…Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2022

I can honestly say that I enjoyed this book a lot. It reads like a fairy tale for young adults with a terrific sense of story. I found myself wanting to get back to reading this book whenever I was forced to take a break. Marienetta and Harinder are sympathetic characters that the reader wants to root for. Her background as an orphan and his as a tragedy-stricken commoner makes us strongly wish for them to get together. Strong stuff.

I thought the king going through such lengths for such a person of low standing as Harinder stretched plausibility but somehow I eventually did buy it. Why shouldn’t a king care for a commoner? If he cared enough to take in Marienetta as an orphan then it’s certainly within his character to commit such an extraordinary act for someone such as Harinder. Anyway, it enhanced the fairy tale aesthetic of the story at-large.

The pacing was brisk and this worked in most places. A worthwhile read that can be finished in one sitting…
