I liked this retelling of cinderella story, i enjoyed every word, every dailogue, every page of it .

The Lady Raven follows the classic story of Cinderella: littel princesse "Zezolla", her mother is murdered... an evil stepmother, a wicked stepsisters...
Zezolla is treated with cruelty, neglected, and left to serve in her own castle. The only friends she has are her beloved raven and her pet wolf.

i liked that i didn't feel like reading a cinderella story,but more in a royal univers.Though it clear

The Lady Raven is not your everyday telling of Cinderella. There are aspects that will indeed come through, however this tale... is more of the darker side of the story.
Zezolla is shown the worst side of most people and this is a story of how can she overcome all the cruelty.
I found this to be an engaging read, having a strong knowledge of several re-tellings, this one completely stands out. The story is very easy to follow while still drawing the reader in.You HAVE to know what is coming next!!

But the marriage is short lived. Not long after he gets marries again, by her governess who Zezolla trusted, but is not who she seems. Life gets even more difficult for h

I struggled a little deciding how to rate The Lady Raven. On the plus side, this is an interesting, dark retelling of the familiar Cinderella story. I liked many of Henry's changes and additions, and the pacing of the piece worked okay. What let this book down, though, was the prose. It needed a thorough edit, as there were constant instances of incorrect punctuation, repetition, and stilted dialogue. They were on every page, making them impossible to ignore, and it was therefore hard to sink in ...more
