Book Review: The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland – For a Little While

The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland - For a Little While
The Girl Who Ruled Fairyland – For a Little While by Catherynne M. Valente

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this little short story, and was delighted to see the beginnings of Mallow’s adventures. It’s strange how I got used to thinking of her as the bad guy, but she really is such an interesting and complex character, that she doesn’t fit into the “bad guy” box. She’s so much more.

As always, I adore Valente’s whimsical and brilliant writing style. There are lots of delightful plot twists and surprises in this story, but it’s too short to really have much development.

A wonderful addition to the Fairyland series!
