Book Review

Let me start with the obvious, this is a Cinderella fairytale retelling (of sorts), only she’s been dead for 200 years and Kalynn flipped the classic tale on it’s head. So, what if everything you’ve been told about the Cinderella tale was a lie?

Sophia doesn’t want to go to the ball, in fact, she doesn’t want a man at all. She has been in love with Erin for as long as she can remember. But being with another girl is impossible. The king decrees that all girls, at 16 years old, will attend a ball to be chosen by a man – those not chosen get two more years at a chance or is forfeit to the king. Believe me, you have to read the book to believe it.

“I don’t want to be saved by some knight in shining armor. I’d like to be the one in the armor, and I’d like to be the one doing the saving.”

Kalynn’s writing brings the tale to live, will captivate you, and while there are some elements of the classic story, she turns it into an original work of art all her own. If you love fairytales as much as I do, then you don’t want to miss this stand-alone read!
