This is a wonderful twist on the classic Cinderella tale. This book is best read after the first installment in the series Beauty because there are many elements from that one that continue on into this and the next Poison.

A great, twisted take on Cinderella.

It was a quick read but was really good. I was surprised by the ending where we start to see the mixing of the two novels.

This is a wonderful retelling of Cinderella, with multi-faceted, interesting characters. I read the entire thing in 2 hours, so not a complex book, but it definitely takes you on an interesting journey with twists and turns. The author manages to convey a lot of backstory and character development with such few words. I really got the feeling that these were "real people" with flaws and lives beyond what I was reading.
