[BOOK ONE]

"Our kingdom was once beautiful, but now the towers are everywhere. They say that Queen Rapunzel has lost her mind--and I believe them. Before, I might have felt sorry for her, but now I just fear her. I fear the sound of her soldiers pounding at the door, demanding that I be taken away. I fear the towers."

Years after the original tale of Rapunzel took place, the kingdom--left to the grief-stricken Queen after her husband's death--is falling apart. People live in constant fear of the many terrible towers across the land, built by her Majesty's decree. Bird is just a peasant girl from the High North, but when someone she cares about is taken by the mad Queen's soldiers, she realizes that the tyranny will never end unless someone tries to fix it. With nothing but her friends, a sled, and a mind full of songs, she sets out to get rid of the towers, once and for all.

I actually loved this story! I can't wait to read it again. Every character is relatable to me in ways thoughtful. I love every twist and plot turn.

Im confused, tho. Why did the queen do that? So that she could imprison women in the towers??
