Imagine just once, Cinderella wasn’t the sweet innocent girl you read about in the fairy tales. She was a kickass heroine that didn’t sit around waiting to be saved. If you can picture that, you have this book in a nutshell.
For ten years, Cinderella has been in training, waiting for her opportunity to extract revenge on her evil stepmother, Armenia, and what she has done to her family. On one fateful night, while on a mission she encounters the prince, Braedon. He’s a bit of a charmer with a reputation. Together they will crush the evil magic that is trying to consume the kingdom.
Cinderella reminded me of Black Widow in the sense of not just being another pretty face. She’s tough as nails and has a soft spot, which doesn’t become her undoing in this story. Braedon grew the most as a character. He wasn’t the spoiled prince you’d expect. He got his hands dirty and he genuinely wanted to help. Cinderella being able to hold her own in a fight against him didn’t hurt! While there was romance, it wasn’t a main story line. It wasn’t deep in the background, but it was founded on admiration. This was a quick paced story that will keep you glued to your seat with the need to know what happens next.
I voluntarily reviewed an copy of this book.
