Genre: YA Space Opera/Scifi/Fantasy

Summary from Goodreads:

Hansel and Gretel Herrscher survived the witch in the woods, but the experience has made Hansel paranoid for the past ten years. He sees dark magic at every turn. When Gretel has a marriage arranged to a much older man, and Hansel discovers he's about to be sent halfway across the galaxy, he knows something sinister is afoot.

Wilhelmine Nordon has plenty of experience with Hansel's quirkier side. So when she catches him and Gretel running away in the middle of the night, she follows to keep them from getting killed. The siblings have never left the capital of Mish on their own, so they need a babysitter. Except when she's discovered, Hansel gives her his usual cold shoulder, and Gretel secretly begs her to take them back.

The problem is, Hansel's paranoia turns out to be well founded, and they're all being hunted.

4 stars

So the thing that I love most about this series is literally the fact that these are fairytale retellings that are not your average fantasy fairytale retelling, but they are sci-fi/fantasy retellings. I never expected to read a sci-fi retelling of my favorite childhood stories. The first book in the series was focused on Sleeping Beauty while this story was focused on Hansel and Gretel. So on top of this being a sci-fi retelling, it's the only retelling of Hansel and Gretel that I have had the pleasure of reading.

I loved the pacing of this book, it's not too fast that everything rushes together without really any time to experience the story, but it is definitely on the fast side. The plot was really intriguing and interesting, and the characters were wonderfully well-written. I loved Wilhelmine, along with Hansel and Gretel. It was overall a wonderful story and I have my fingers crossed that there will be more stories in this series.
