Review: Cloaked is a fairy tale retelling that includes elements of several less common stories. I was excited to read this book becuase I have read several of Flinn's other books and enjoyed them and overall, this one was entertaining as well. I think the best thing about this book was the premise. It was a really interesting story that wass told very well and I think this is a book that can be enjoyed by younger readers as well. The plot was well paced although some parts were predictable.
However, I didn't really connect to the characters all that much and I felt like everything worked out for them a little to easily. Despite the fact that there wasn't a connection though, I really liked the characters and wanted things to work out for them, Johnny in particular. He was my favorite character by far.
I think anyone who enjoys fairy tale retellings will probably like this book . It wasn't the best that I've read, but overall, it was a fun, light, sweet and entertaining read. I have read and loved Flinn's other fairy tale retellings and this one was no exception.
