Publisher's Summary

Young Rhea is a miller's daughter of low birth, so she is understandably surprised when a mysterious nobleman, Lord Crevan, shows up on her doorstep and proposes marriage. Since commoners don't turn down lords - no matter how sinister they may seem - Rhea is forced to agree to the engagement.
Lord Crevan demands that Rhea visit his remote manor before their wedding. Upon arrival, she discovers that not only was her betrothed married six times before, but his previous wives are all imprisoned in his enchanted castle. Determined not to share their same fate, Rhea asserts her desire for freedom. In answer, Lord Crevan gives Rhea a series of magical tasks to complete, with the threat "Come back before dawn, or else I'll marry you."
With time running out and each task more dangerous and bizarre than the last, Rhea must use her resourcefulness, compassion, and bravery to rally the other wives and defeat the sorcerer before he binds her to him forever.

This was listed under the horror genre, it's not at all horror. It's more akin to Alice in Wonderland or Lemony Snickets, and definitely geared toward the young adult audience. Though it wasn't what I was in the mood for, I still really enjoyed it.

SHE BELIEVED THE HEDGE HOG

SHE COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT BEING 15
I greatly enjoyed this book, but understand that it is not for everyone. I am a big fan of fairy tales and that is what this is, including: Witches, Sorcerers, Glacier Monsters, Demons, Gremlins, Rat Speakers, Man Eating Whippoorwills, Bird Golems, Conjure Wife and a Clock Wife. Skim the top and you may think it cute, but down deep it can be disturbing. Their is plenty of humor, not LOL, but chuckle with an occasional laugh. Down deep it may have more in common with Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns.
TIME IS A LARGE COUNTRY
I thought the writer was clever and very entertaining. Narrator does an excellent job.

I WOULD FOLLOW THIS HEDGEHOG INTO THE MOUTH OF HELL.
