This is a story of Cosette, giftless girl born into world full of gifts – a gift of music, turning apples into peaches, or gift like her father – storytelling. Her father can spin a tale so fascinating that everyone in the tavern listening may think those tales are true. All seems to be good until one of those stories imagines Cosette to have the most amazing gift – she can spin gold. The idea is so unbelievable, yet many people believe it and are cross with Cosette that she is not willing to share her gift with others. This lie brings her before the King, who is not taking no for an answer. In those circumstances, Cosette finds an ally that can help her survive.

The Storyteller’s Daughter is an intriguing read, I was quite quickly drawn into the characters, and I wanted to know what will happen. They all have their secrets and mysteries, and I was keen to find out the truth behind each of those characters. Cosette is a grat man character, she grows through the story and becomes more sure of herself. She even dares to disobey the King, which is unimaginable for a giftless girl from a poor family. Characters around her are not that well developed, but they all have something to them, some mystery that just keeps you engaged in the story,

It is an entertaining read, but sadly the final is disappointing. The final resolution to the mystery is not shown, we just learn about it from someone who been there. It was really anti-climactic and just too much of a sweet happy ending. Even though the book left me wanting more, I’m still content with the time I spent with it.

His shadowed face lit by flames,Rumpelstiltskin is my name…
For as long as anyone can remember, every child in Westfallen has been born with a Gift, and these Gifts defined them.
Then Cosette is born, Giftless.
An attempt to hide her misfortune brings her before the King, who entraps her to use her Gift as a pawn in his war.
Caught in a lie, Cosette desperately searches for a power strong enough to free her. Intrigued by whispers of an old king and a dark curse, she calls upon Rumpelstiltskin and finds him trapped in a magic deeper than she bargained for. Now, Cosette must fight to reclaim her freedom from the King and break Rumpel’s curse. When time runs out, she’ll lose more than her heart. She’ll lose her life.

    This one sounds so interesting! I love fairy tell retellings. It’s a shame to hear the ending is a bit anti-climactic and the resolution to easily cleared up. But it sounds like the book was good overall. I’m glad you enjoyed it for the most part!

    A very interesting premise, and one that can resonate with us book lovers: that the power of a story could be so strong as to turn into something people believe in as they do reality. Although it does not work so well for poor Cosette…
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂
