Read this last night and really enjoyed it. It was nice and light-hearted read but also not afraid to dive into some serious topics, the storyline was compelling and finally, someone has figured out how to write believable dialogue - it's about time! The setting is an intriguing mix of fantasy and the modern world; I look forward to seeing how the author fleshes this out in the first full-length novel of the series, The Ex-Princess. Definitely chick lit with a female protagonist and a bit of romance thrown in - perfect for a beach or vacation read or just an evening when you want a mini escape from reality, as I did! Despite its short length as a novella, it really drew me in like any good fiction does, and I didn't want it to end. My only beef with it is that now I have to wait three weeks until the full novel is released! ;)
