Beautiful Fairy Tale

Advantages: Beautiful book
Disadvantages: How can he get any better ?

I am an avid reader of Neil Gaimans Sandman series and found this to be an altogether lighter alternative. This is a fairy tale about a man who meets a star and falls inlove with her. The beauty of the tale lies in the way its told and, if you've got ...
