Political hmm..
30 November 2018 | by pwindingSee all my reviews

Not sure if I am getting this right, but being European, this is not about poliitics for me. The plot is pretty good and there are some good lines intertwining, so far so good. The fairytale part I dont really see in other than hints, but they are subtle and not that clear. Still I like it a lot.
