Cinderella (Not Quite the Fairy Tale #1) by May Sage

When the king searches his kingdom for a wife Ella doesn’t take it seriously. She’s done with men and especially men like Daniel. She does her duty and sends in a picture of herself that sparks an interest he cannot deny. With a step-mother and two awful step-sisters, Ella doesn’t have time for the king and his wandering eyes so she does what any fairy tale creature does and calls in a favour.

This new spin on Cinderella gave me plenty to think about. Ella’s a woman with a strong mind and she isn’t about to let a man make a fool of her again. Her humour and defiance amused me and gave the story a quirky edge. The fairy godmother and Rumpelstiltskin were revamped for the book and worked really well bringing a little extra to the story.

The politics of the land begins and is set to continue throughout the interlinked series giving the reader something more than just a retold fairy tale. The book does need a polish, but it’s a good read, regardless.
