Red as Blood and White as Bone by Theodora Goss is a dark fantasy about a kitchen girl obsessed with fairy tales, who upon discovering a ragged woman outside the castle during a storm, takes her in–certain she’s a princess in disguise.

Klara was such a brave and good girl. She’d lived a hard life, and she hadn’t always been treated kindly by the people who looked after her after her mother died. The fact that she remained so sweet and trusting despite her rough start only made me like her more than I already did.

One part of the plot never quite made sense to me. It involved how a punishment was dealt out at the castle where Klara worked. I expected the baron who lived there would behave one way, so when his reaction was completely different from that I was surprised. It would have been helpful to have more information about why he made that choice and why it didn’t seem to match what the readers knew about him.

There was a twist in the storyline that I thought was well done. Klara didn’t see it coming, and I was so wrapped up in her innocent approach to life that I nearly missed it as well. This only made it more interesting to explore once I realized that she didn’t have the full picture of what was going on at her place of employment. It was exciting to see if my last-minute predictions about this plot point were correct and what would happen to the characters next.

Red as Blood and White as Bone should be read by anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to live in a fairy tale.
