by Jackson Pearce


i thought that these "fairy tale retellings" would all be retellings of different fairy tales with no overlap, but then some fenris from sisters red snuck in, along with the brother of silas reynolds. I love these fairy tale mash ups and Jackson Pearce takes them to a whole new level with keeping the theme of werewolves believable and incredibly threatening through out while remaining true to the original story of Hansel and Gretel.

Hansel and Gretal was never a favourite of mine, I just never liked it. But, I was willing to read this seeing as how I loved Jacksons other works. Sisters Red was incredible, and for the most part a solid book. But, This isnt Sisters Red, this WAS meant to be Hansel and Gretal.

Heres where it went wrong... A list of pros and cons.

PROS:

-Jackson has an impressive skill at crafting characters, Grethen is well written and positivly glowing.
-Jackson again impresses with strong side characters, Sophia and Ansel are creative and endearing.
-Action! Lots of action and very little sitting or "stewing" time.
-The plot is good, with a good twist at the end.

CONS:

-Jackson really has not talent to write in a romance, I didnt care about .... at all. He was to chilche for me.
-The books was MEANT to be about HANSEL AND GRETAL, not a continiuom of that damned book Sisters Red.The book really didnt work, at alll. Its either Hansel or Gretal or Red Ridinghood. NOT both, Yes it did add a good deal of action and yes the romance is built around the idea of werewolves but its not Little Red.
-Ironically the action prevents a great deal of plot building that Jackson didnt think about, or maybe she did and didnt feel the potential.
-I really wasnt able to sit down and finish the book quickly because it wasnt what it set out to be.
-There is NO RESOLUTION!!!! None! At all, just bam over!
-Jacksons strong characters actually managed to make the plot less interesting. I loved Grethen, but just hated the plot.

The list feels a bit hypocritical, yes but thats how the book really felt to me. It kept getting in the way of the rest of the book.Nerer had a chance. Why two stars? because the CONS really did make me realise what was missing. I will look forward to Jacksons other works, The retelling of The Little Mermaid should be good. All in all its a lame exuse for a HANSEL AND GRETAL retelling. Avoid it.

This remix of Hansel & Gretel is a must for all fairytale buffs, young and old, but beware. Jackson Pearce's version is darker, more grisly version of the story you heard as a child and scary enough to make you question the original.

I was drawn in from the first page with the story of how Gretchen and Ansel lost their sister to the witch in the forest when they were young. Pearce kept me engaged with the depth of detail in her writing and her smooth story telling.

After both of their biological parents die, Ansel and Gretchen stepmother kicks them out, sending them off on a quest to start over. Gretchen has been living in the shadow of her sister -- a girl whose name hasn't even been mentioned in years -- and she feels like part of herself is missing. She is the half that survived, and for years she has wondered why. Why wasn't she the one who was taken?

When their car breaks down in Live Oak, South Carolina, the siblings believe they've hit a streak of bad luck. Busted car, no cash, and everyone in town is treating them like pariahs. The plan is for Ansel to do some work for the owner of the local chocolate shop, Sophia Kelly, but plans quickly change as he and Gretchen become attached to her. Their unplanned detour and newfound friend may be just what they needed to leave their old lives behind.

But just as Gretchen gets comfortable her fear of the woods comes roaring back. Girls have gone missing in the tight-knit southern town and it's all too eerily familiar for Gretchen. Enter Samuel Reynolds, who saves Gretchen from a brush with death and the witch she thought she left behind in Washington years ago and gives her the chance to stamp down her fear for good.

Sweetly held true to the slow build that classic fairytales tend to have, yet the pace felt off somehow. I wanted more action. Things got intense occasionally, but intrigue prevailed. My interest was often piqued and still there was no payoff. I thought that if I held out and absorbed all the clues that the end would be worth the wait. Like a good mystery novel, I was waiting for the big reveal. That aha moment when it all comes together.

If you've ever read a well constructed mystery novel then you know what I'm talking about. The story held me because it was beautifully written and carefully pieced together like a complex mosaic, but I didn't feel my heart racing as the bigger picture was revealed. In fact, with the exception of one small facet (which I won't reveal to avoid spoilery), I predicted the plot twist well before the characters put it all together. Perceptive readers will likely do the same.

That being said, I did thoroughly enjoy the Sweetly. Some of the smaller reveals in the story are very emotional moments, including Gretchen's realization about the witch and Sophia's confession. Watching Gretchen and Samuel's relationship unfold was one of my favorite parts of the book. They are two extremely guarded people who very slowly, over the course of the novel, dare to be vulnerable with each other. The brief moments they share early on are pure magic and the trust built between them is unshakable.

Despite a somewhat predictable plot, Sweetly is such a multi-faceted book that is definitely worth a read. It's difficult not to become invested in these characters and the relationships they build and destroy.
