I'm always leery of works based on fairy tales. I was pleased that a lot of imagination went into this book. Although the main characters are from the modern world (tourists and cellphones), a good bit of the story takes place in an alternate timeline. I appreciate that the heroine is self-aware and relies on her own instincts to solve her problems. Given that, she also has friends that are willing to fight for her as well. Recommended for readers of fantasy fiction.
