Secret History of Tom Trueheart

Very little works for me in this fairy-tale inspired fantasy. The logic seems largely faulty (such as the limited view on fairy-tale world and that only these 7 brothers – all named Jack – can take on these “quest” assignments.) The “message” is so blatant that the tale holds little depth. It simply did not work for me.
