What if Cinderella never tried on the glass slipper? Unable to prove that she’s the missing princess, and unable to bear life under Lady Tremaine any longer, Cinderella attempts a fresh start, looking for work at the palace as a seamstress. But when the Grand Duke appoints her to serve under the king’s visiting sister, Cinderella becomes witness to a grand conspiracy to take the king-and the prince-out of power, as well as a longstanding prejudice against fairies, including Cinderella’s own Fairy Godmother. Faced with questions of love and loyalty to the kingdom, Cinderella must find a way to stop the villains of past and present . . . before it’s too late.
Are you ready to dive into a new Cinderella story with a twist?
Cinderella is a classic fairytale from Disney. It had been retold over the years. There some dark versions of it and different types of happily ever afters also. This book gave Cinderella more character and in depth which I did enjoy.
This time around Cinderella has more personality in the book. She is still caring person when her stepmother and sisters hurt her so much. Instead of the prince finding her in the end with the glass slipper, she ends up being sold.
Cinderella is resourceful in this book and manage to escape and work at the castle. Trying hard to get the price to notice her. She still has self doubt with him accepting who she is bc of her status and abuse over years from stepmother and stepsisters. Along the way she learn of an evil plot to dethrone the prince. Also Cinderella finds out magic been outlaw so she will try her best to save her godmother and help the people around her out.
So much is going on at once with the book. Which I did enjoy reading. This retelling is fun and a little action pack. Also I do love the cover for this book. Did enjoy the prince had his own story in the book as well. I did like the prince in the book. He is kind and cares about his people. Also he has an open mind in changing old rules to better the kingdom.
