I really enjoyed this short Cinderella retelling. It was gritty, dirty and compelling. Bettie Sharp is not afraid to turn things on their head, this is not Cinderella as we know it. Ember (our cinder girl) is not pure and wholesome. She is powerful, dark and sometimes wicked. The same can be said for Prince Charming, who is not always what his name suggests. None of the characters in this were perfect; they all had their faults, issues and secrets.
The storyline is brilliant and the at times surprisingly poetic. It is a well put together book that catches you and transports you into is world with sentences.
It is not a book for the faint of heart. It is dark and dirty and definitely for adults. If you don’t mind that then I highly recommend this sinful fairy-tale.
