Whew! What story! Allerleirauh covers things in it that some may be a little apprehensive to consider it, But it is well worth the read.

Allerleirauh is a story that reminded me why I love fairy tales. It’s a story of bravery, Allerleirauh keeps you almost on the edge of your seat as you’re reading, wondering what will come next for the princess.
“You have no power over me anymore”
And gives its princess a great character development who wants to fight for what she thinks is right. Learning to be strong for herself rather than obedient.
And Klaus, a sweetheart who shows that his kindness knows no bounds, he captures your heart when he’s first introduced. The story sucks you in and feel for each characters struggles. I felt as though I was with Princess Aurelia during her journey. Chantal makes her pages come to life and Both characters I felt were very well written along with the story. I’m so glad I was able to read this Book ❤
