I loved the different story elements Melissa gave to this version. This time, Cinderella's mother is still alive, though she may as well not be. And the prince has a much more, um, active role in the story than in most Cinderella tales. She created some great villains altogether.

I would have liked to see a bit more of Cinder in the story. Most of it focuses around Ella so I didn't feel nearly as connected to Cinder. Many of the characters were well developed, though, and made me come back to the book whenever I had to put it down. That's always a great sign!
