"Light and dark-this is the destiny placed upon Natasha and Clara, the birthright bestowed by their godfather, the mysterious sorcerer Drosselmeyer. Clara, the favorite, grows into beauty and ease, while Natasha is cursed to live in her sister's shadow. But one fateful Christmas Eve, Natasha gets her chance at revenge.

As Natasha uncovers the dark destiny laid before her birth, she must reckon with powers both earthly and magical, and decide towhich world she truly belongs"--… (mere)

If the Nutcracker went to the dark side... ( )
  bookczuk | Jan 30, 2024 |
I liked that book was a bit darker and gothic than the original nutcracker story. I enjoyed the magic elements and the use of dark and light. I would have like to seen more inside the world of the Kingdom of sweets. A good book if a fan of the ballet or original story. ( )

This starts off slow, though enjoyable, and becomes dark and gruesome and captivating about half way through until the end. I am shamefully not familiar with the Nutcracker aside from the score, so I'm not sure how faithful this is to the original. It's a fantastical story that is perfect for reading around the holidays.

I'm not sure this book really knows who it's audience should be. The prose/plot is very formulaic in the way I would expect from a YA novel...but the subject matter is pretty dark for younger readers. It seems to be a fantasy but then towards the end of the novel very real events from history are referenced. There are some real moments of interest in this novel (when Natasha first goes to the other world and sees the careless destruction left behind by her sister, her later realization that her husband is pretty awful actually) but they get lost in the muddle. This ultimately reads like a book where the author had about three ideas she crushed together more than a coherent novel on its own. ( )

Glad I chose this as one of my December BOTM books. Solid 4 star book. I plan to watch some Nutcracker movies next. ( )
