'The Shadow of the Bear: A Fairy Tale Retold' by Regina Doman was an excellent read. The story plot was well thought-out and daring. The modern twist on the old fairy tale 'Snow White and Rose Red' by Brothers Grimm was done flawlessly. The book is set in a Catholic religon, but even if you aren't strictly Catholic, I highly reccomend this book. This book suites the ages of 13 to 160, due to the fact that some younger readers may not be able to understand everything that occures, and also due to the violence (The Catholic religon, murder attempts, drug use, high-school drama, kidnaps, everything that comes with prom when a girl goes out with a sleezy guy, street fights, actual murder [talked about, not actually executed], and kissing). This being a Catholic book, there is no sex, cursing, or murder of main characters in that present time. This book is intense, but well worth the read.
Books also reccomended: Inheritance Series, The Lady of Milkweed Manor, Pride and Prejudice, Castaways: The Flying Dutchman, and many more...
