Rhea is a miller’s daughter set to marry a high-ranking man she has never met. Although uncommon, what is mysterious is the man himself. With a house full of women and unknown magical powers, Rhea has no idea what her soon to be husband is up to.
This book had gotten a high rating on Goodreads, so when I saw it on NetGalley I had to request it. The summary it self didn’t really draw me but I was open minded. Firstly, I am not sure what fairy tale, this is supposed to be a retelling on, but yeah *shrugs*
I couldn’t get excited with this book. It was slow. Rhea was slow and she did a whole lot of complaining and not a lot of action without the help of others. She also didn’t have much personality.
The author was creative. Without giving too much away, the story behind the six other wives and their husband was great to read. I wish there was a bit more of it. Their stories was actually more interesting than Rhea’s story.
Although I thought the concept of this book was enticing, the book itself didn’t really do anything for me. Rhea lacked a personality from beginning to end and she lacked emotions other than being tired and fearful. Oh yeah and wanting to give up. For a girl, who knew nothing of her husband, she didn’t do enough investigation to find out anything.
This book wasn’t my cup of tea.
