The Crimson Thread by Suzane Weyn

The Crimson Thread by Suzanne Weyn is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, part of the "Once Upon a Time" series from Simon Pulse. Like most multi-author series, this one is of uneven quality, and I'd say The Crimson Thread is a middle-of-the-road entry. It sets the Rumpelstiltskin story in the industrial era, with an Irish immigrant girl as the main character. It was a fair read, and I liked how the author played with the conventions of the Rumpelstiltskin tale -- though I must admit that the epilogue made me roll my eyes a bit.

(Review copy purchased by me.)
