The Fairest Beauty

A daring rescue. A difficult choice.

Title: The Fairest Beauty

Age Level: 11+

Stars: 5

Violence: Um. Yeah, kind of. Ok. I admit, there was a lot and the duchess is a murdering left and right. 

What I thought About the Book:

The Fairest Beauty, I must say, is even better than The Captive Maiden. Though if I had to pick one of the fairy tales, Cinderella would come first.

The Fairest Beauty is based on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, I can see this in most aspects--and quite enjoy it. I loved the seven strange men--Siggy and Dolf, honestly, were my favorites.

I loved how the adventure begins with Pinnosa (sp?!) trying to reach the castle. And I loved how Sophie looks like Snow White--it's pretty fun. ;)

When Gabe takes the arrow for Sophie, I stopped and thought about this a minute, thinking, "Would I take an arrow for someone? Would I?" It ended with a "no" and I had a new respect for Gabe. Thankfully he did not die from it--thankfully.

**MAJOR SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK YOURSELF**The cross that hangs around Sophie's neck is the best part of the story. I love how the knife only pierced her skin hardly since it had to go through the cross. God works in AMAZING ways. ;)**OK, YOU MAY CONTINUE READING THE REVIEW NOW**

This was a wonderful book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I can't wait to get through with The Healer's Apprentice and The Merchant's Daughter. :)
