( I received this book free in exchange for my honest review )
This dark tale on a old classic isn't something you should pass up! I love retellings, and though Cinderella's isn't one of my favourite fairy tales, I was entrance with this read from the first page until the last!
This isn't your normal retelling. It's dark, twisted and a little frightening. We are taken down a different; what if rout, and in this story Ella isn't the perfect sweet girl form disney. She is relatable, she's flawed and she is badass. The romance, it isn't shoved down our throats, it's steady, it's natural and it has you rooting for them.
I like the little brother aspect, it gave Ella something extra, a desperation you can call it. And it to me gives her a real reason for not packing up and leaving the abuse. She loyal to her family, and she'll stop at nothing to be with/save them.
This is a solid read that I highly recommend. Though it follows the Cinderella plot, it is anything but the story we're use to. This twist tale of love, sorrow and death will have you on the edge of your seat. Don't turn off the lights
