East by Edith Pattou
Romance:Thinking a lot about someone, starting to like someone,starting to fall in love.
Bad Romance:To break the enchantment she had to sleep with him for a certain amount of nights.This book portrayed it very well, it was classified as bad and they were"two arm-lengths form each other".It was better in that way than other retellings.
Violence:Sometimes the White Bear would be more like a bear acting hungry.Troll palace destroyed and one troll got blown up before that.And the
strolls got buried in the snow and all.Several dangerous situations.
Other:Some drinking, magic and superstitions.
What I Thought:It was a good retelling, but I liked Jessica Day George's better.It was definitely well written and that was great.I just don't like some of the things about it.And it seemed a bit long, dragging out.But great plot and lot's of action.
Rating & Age:4 stars.13 up.
