Book Review #665
A Curse Dark As Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I sometimes pick up books because their covers capture my attention and I think they might be interesting. This was one of those books. The story is a retelling of a classic fairy tale and for the beginning parts of it I was pretty intrigued and wanting to know how things would work out. But somewhere in the middle there was a shift in the story and I felt like it got a little more dull. The romantic elements of this story were fairly small and I wished that they had been bigger parts. I didn't like this story as much as I anticipated, but I might still recommend.
