I kind of like it but it's also kind of unsatisfying?

I kind of like the idea of fairy tales look at years later and what happened to the main characters/"heroes" of them. I like that there is a realistic approach of what happens if you are the main character of Red Riding Hood or the Beauty and the Beast. I also like, that there are shades of grey for everything.

What felt very unsatisfying for me? The major character death and that we don't know how it ends for the other character. That's just not my cup of tea. :/

All in all, I enjoyed the writing and the general premise of this story but the ending just wasn't for me. :/
