    She does it again!!

    Tamara Grantham does it again! It’s no secret that I am a fan of her Fairy World MD series. So when she reached out about this book I couldn’t say no. Now let’s be honest here I surprisingly love re-tellings. I say this because a year ago I didn’t think they were something I would ever enjoy. Also, to be completely honest going into this I knew nothing of Rapunzel except she has long hair. I mean I still haven’t even seen Tangled before picking up this book. I really like how this story is focused on Gothel, who is living out a punishment due to her mother’s actions. In this story you see her grow so much. One of my favorite things is how she gains self-respect and self-worth throughout the story. I also love the fact this book points out that you shouldn’t stereotype people. Yes, Gothel is a witch but Raj refuses to judge her based on that. Long story short I adored Gothel and Raj and I really loved how this story ended. The story as a whole wrapped up all of the loose ends wonderfully and I felt satisfied with this being only one book (and that does not happen often). If you like retellings you really should pick this one up!!

    non-traditional Rapunzel

    This is a very different take on the traditional Rapunzel story. Instead of being the "bad guy" (or girl, as it were), Gothel is actually the hero of this tale. She sets out - first with the aid of the prince's squire, and later a rather odd assortment of characters - on a quest in hopes of retreiving the golden shears from her aunts, ending the curse, and setting Rapunzel - as well as herself! - free. Of course, things are never as simple as they should be, and there are a lot of twists and turns to their tale, a lot of hardships to be overcome. But the original pair do eventually make it back to Rapunzel's tower, where their destiny awaits them. I quite enjoyed this unusual version of the fairy tale. The characters were all quite interesting, from Gothel and Raj, to Rapunzel and the prince, to their traveling companions and various other characters that they come across, even Jester the cat. (Although I wish he'd had a larger role!) Many of the personalities seem like they have much larger stories to tell, and since this is the first in a series, I'm hopeful that we get to see more of many of them in future volumes. There were a few items that either didn't exactly jive with other aspects of the narrative or that weren't given the attention they seemed to warrant. And much of the dialogue was stilted and felt rather unnatural. But the story itself was quite fun, and the characters delightful. It definitely kept me engaged and wondering what was going to happen next. I'm looking forward to additional tales from this world.

    Unique

    I absolutely loved this re-telling of the famous fairytale about rapunzel. The book flows nicely and the conflict kept me on the edge of my seat. The author took a classic and was able to make it her own story and unique and suspenseful. I am giving this a solid five star rating as it so deserves. It takes talent to spin a famously told story such as this one. I enjoyed the book from the first to last page. The author hit a home run with this book!

    Love it!

    The Witches Tower by Tamara Grantham is a Fairytale retelling of Rapunzel, told from the Witch, Gothel’s point of view. Gothel loves her mother, and knew her mother loved her, but she was so very angry with her. Her mother’s choices and actions cost her so much, five years later she is still paying. Until she encounters a Prince and his Squire, which catapults her into a quest to rescue Rapunzel and save the Kingdoms. Along the way she meets interesting characters, as well as life threatening dangers. This story grabbed me from the beginning, and the characters were so full and colorful, I felt a part of the action. I enjoyed the twists and turns so much, in the end I stayed up all night to finish. An absolute full 5 stars, well deserved.
