Review: The Maiden Thief

The Maiden Thief
The Maiden Thief by Melissa Marr
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A fairly straight retelling of the folktale of Bluebeard. Marr adds in a few ‘modern’ elements, but the overall feel remains what you would expect from a folktale, with the setting being a small, old-fashioned village of indeterminate locale. It’s good – it’s a classic story, after all – but it doesn’t really add anything strikingly new to the plethora of versions of this story that exist.
