4.5 magical stars!
This is a clever and futuristic re-telling of Hansel and Gretel, with another fairy tale mixed in for good measure. (No spoilers here, you’ll have to read to find out which!)
Older brother Hansel is head strong and super protective of his sister Gretel, especially ever since their father’s new wife tried to lose them in the woods when they were children. Now that Hansel is 21, his father has given up trying to form an alliance via his marriage, and instead has arranged for sweet, 17-year-old Gretel to marry a neighboring President. Fearing for his sister’s safety and happiness, Hansel steals her away in the middle of the night to avoid early morning nuptials. Gretel’s childhood friend, Wilhelmine (Minna), sneaks onboard the spaceship to help look after of them.
As Hansel, Gretel, and Minna journey off on the adventure of a lifetime, they learn more about each other and themselves.
Perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer’s ‘The Lunar Chronicles’!
