All in all, while Cinders wasn't mind-blowing or groundbreaking, it was a nice, quick read about a character we've seen before (just not in such dire straits). It's probably not a book I'd read more than once though, but it was pretty decent for a one-time read.
The length is perfect. I was able to read it in one sitting -- which is good because with Sawh's skill level of writing and the fascinating plot, I would have read it all in one sitting even if it had been 400 pages long (which would have greatly upset my toddler son).
It's a brilliant retelling of the fairy tale -- taking it back to the morbidity of its origin. I loved this short story and highly recommend it!
For fans of fairytale retelling as well as someone like me who went into this reluctantly. It's entertaining and as far from the original as can be.
In this version, however, Rella is a resident of Black House and her "sisters" are all doxies in the employ of Stepmother. How Rella ends up at the ball and all the other events in he tale have a dark quality that harkens back to the Grimm version.
A wonderful read!
