I have read several books by this author and have enjoyed them all. The author always delivers an enjoyable reading experience with lots of twists and turns.
I like the main character in the story because she is not the Cinderella in the fairy tale we grew up with. She is a strong character that doesn’t just roll over and tolerate the behaviors of her step mother and sisters. The author does a great job of developing a believable character that is sassy and willing to stand up for herself. The way she handles her step mother when she attempts to take something that is hers by birthright is one of the things that has stuck with me long after reading the story.
I would have definitely given the story five stars, but there were a couple issues I had with the story.
I found the dialogue difficult to follow at times because of the version of English the author chose to use. There were a couple places where I was unable to determine what the author meant in her use of the word because it was so far removed from modern English. The dialogue slowed the reading down at times as I reread the paragraph making sure I understood what was being said.
That being said, I feel the dialogue got a little easier as I became familiar with it as the story progressed.
There were some instances where things happened, somewhat magically, that left me scratching my head wondering how that could have happened. I would have liked a little more explanation.
I am looking forward to reading the sequel, as the author did an excellent job of telling the story, yet leaving me wanting more. I highly recommend reading this story if you are looking for a great retelling of this fairy tale. You will be pleasantly surprised if you are looking for something different.
I have read several books written by this author. What stands out for me in this book, as well as in the others, is the story line. Just when you think you know what's going to happen next, there is a plot twist. The author keeps you guessing.
The Cinderella Plan has several characters in it that will be familiar to readers of traditional fairy tales. This book, however, is not your traditional fairy tale -- it's better than the story we knew as children.
Cinderella is a strong character who knows what she wants. She's clever. She is not afraid to do what she needs to do in order to succeed.
I wish I could give the book five stars, but I have to drop one star for a few reasons. There was two incidents of violence, one that involved Isolde, Cinderella's stepmother, and a small animal, that I felt were unnecessary. A few people were initially mentioned by name without an explanation of who they were. I found myself going back several pages to see if I had missed the character's introduction into the story. And, the dialogue (an earlier version of English) slowed the pace of my reading in parts due to it being confusing.
I'm looking forward to reading the sequel to the author's version of the Cinderella. story.
This reminded me of a twisted fairy tale that one can only imagine in fantasy land. Cinderella isn't the Disney version, by any means. She's somewhat vengeful and isn't beyond getting herself worked up over close contact with members of the opposite sex. She's living in a land of harsh rule and violent sentences for wrongdoing, regardless of the degree of crime.
Now, this probably should be a five star review, and the author may never ask me to be an advance reader again. But, I'm giving it four stars. I admire her efforts in writing it in the made up language of land in which it's set, but I thought that it got in the way at times. I haven't seen the finished product, but I know she said she was going to work hard to fix that. I may have to eat my words and rating and amend it up to five stars after reading the revised version.
The end of this book did its job in setting up a cliffhanger setting for the Book 2 of the series. Yes, even though it's not my type, I'll make sure to read the second book, simply to keep from lying in bed wondering what happened. I think you'll enjoy this one, even if you're like me, and not a fan of the genre. It's a different type of book for a reader that's open to new concepts and ideas. Give it a shot!
Galien was the real prince that Cinderella was destined to marry.
This book was definitely the controversy between good and evil. The Good won!
I can't wait to read book 2.
