Purity cannot abide the darkness.

It’s been two years since Ellison defeated her stepsisters and sent her evil stepmother back into the Abyss.

Though she’s learning to control her dark magic and has spent time traveling with Prince William and bringing peace to the kingdom, one fact remains. She is a necromancer and he is a paladin of light. And so, the king refuses to give

When I found out F. M. Boughan was bringing out a sequel to her Cinderella re-telling I'll admit I was a little excited. It didn't disappoint. I'll start by saying this is a fantasy retelling with magic and a dark twist. Ellison has met the prince and defeated evil. Now she's ready for her happily ever after, but it obviously is not that simple. Ellison has her father and brother back but magic is haunting her family happiness. Her engagement to the prince isn't going as smoothly as she would li ...more

I am so glad that Ella got off of her high horse. It was such a breath of relief that Boughan decided that Ella wasn't always right, and she wasn't the One. That, even as the protagonist she didn't end up saving everyone.

So basically, its great to know that our protagonist isn't a horrible, prideful prick.

Other than that, it was a pretty good tale, but I seriously cannot believe how nonchalant the characters were when one of them dies.

Its like, Oh no, he's gone...

Ah well, better keep going.

Cinderella’s Inferno blazes with darkness. It is horrific and twisted. If you enjoy journeys in to the depths of the underworld, you will love this one! 

I enjoyed how dark and gritty this one was. It had a very slow start, and was pretty predictable, but I still loved F.M’s writing, and the horrific twist on Cinderella. It was a sequel worth reading, and kept me turning pages until the end.

Like the first one, I really loved the horror in the story and writing. F.M. painted a very grotesque pictu

\Two years ago Ellison and William helped to vanquish the evil that was Ellison's step-mother, hoping that they would be able to get their happily ever after. But instead they have spent the last two years being underappreciated and their relationship going unnoticed. Ellison thought that she proved herself to the King when she helped to save his kingdom but he fails to change the laws that would allow her to marry William. When Willi

Just when you thought Ellison's journey was over the story continues in the second novel in the Cinderella Necromancer series. The first book was a dark retelling of the classic tale of Cinderella with evil and magic infused upon the page. The second book certainly did not disappoint.

This book was a closer examination of Ellison as a character as she journeyed to Hell (yes Hell) to save her mother's soul. The inner struggle of Ellison was what drove the book even though the plot was a little slo

Protagonist: After the events of the first book, I wasn't anticipating that this would turn out to be a series, and so Ellison's development at the end of the previous installment felt like a good stopping point, and at the beginning of this book she feels well, very mature for her age. She's been on a few daring quests since we last saw her, in fact, it's been two years, and for a good chunk of this book, I wasn't sure where Ellison's character development was going or even if she is mea

ACTUAL RATING: 2 1/2 Stars

Cinderella's Inferno is the sequel to F.M. Boughan's Cinderella, Necromancer which I reviewed last year. I liked the first book, but I have to admit this sequel was a miss for me. I think part of it was because I felt like the first book was a pretty succinct book that I didn't need more of Ellison's story. This second novel is more of retelling of Dante's Inferno, and less a retelling of a fairytale

Cinderella’s Inferno starts after two years in which the main protagonist had time and many occasions to use her powers, to gain their control and decide the way in which she wants to use them. But this was a process that went in both directions. The powers changed her too. So, it’s time for our Cinderella to go on a self-discovery journey.

And this journey, as Mrs. Boughan already shown us in the first volume, it will not be an easy one and, if it is not quite clear from the title, then the mot

Fell more in love with William. All he sacrificed in this book for Ellison just warms the heart but also breaks it. You see him time and again sacrifice himself and his friends are put in danger for Ellison and she doesn’t really see it. She is so focused on finding her mother she doesn’t see all she puts others through and the effects it is having on them. Even her dad who is very secretive is effected in ways she can’t fathom.

For me William is my favorite in this story. He is supportive, kind,

I love anything to do with Fairy Tales, and the darker the better. I was however NOT a fan of YA until I started reading this series. Maybe its just the author but I have now found myself searching for YA such as this.
The first book in this series was heart wrenching, and dramatic and so friggin' suspenseful I couldn't put it down.
The sequel? In one word, unstoppable.
Ellison is back with the same stubborn, strong and relentless attitude she had in the first book, only this time she'll need to

This sequel definitely lives up to the first one!

I loved the darker, slight re-telling of Cinderella that doesn't allow the main character to fully get her happy ending, at least for now. If you loved getting into Cinderella, Necromancer, you'll slowly fall back into Inferno. It did take me a hot minute to get to back into to the story, but once I was, I devoured this book in only two sittings.

I will say that it felt like this one had a more adventure-type vibe than the first book. There are l

I'm a huge fan of retellings and read the first book in this series last year! I admit that I haven't read a ton of Cinderella themed novels but I thoroughly enjoyed this one as much as I did the first one.

Ellison's father played a bigger role in this book which was intriguing since we don't usually hear much about any of the other versions of Cinderella's father. I also enjoyed that William had a much bigger part in this book.

The character development that Ellison went through was perfection! I

In the time since we left Ellison after book one, she has been using her powers of necromancy to rid the kingdom of demons, a task that has gained her much renown, but has tainted her soul. When she accidentally condemns a loved one to the depths of hell, she risks everything to set it right. The descent takes Ellison and her companions through Dante's Nine Circles of Hell. Each circle confirms for Ellison her path to eternal damnation and her need to save her loved ones from the same fate. This ...more

My heart is so happy that this book exists. ❤️ *stands on soapbox: ELLISON DOES NOT DESERVE WILLIAM.* He’s the read princely goal to aspire to, and I forgot how much I missed him! I love these books so much and I’m hoping and praying that a third will be coming. So much mystery in the last few chapters! I will say that the ending felt a little rushed to me, but maybe it’s because I wanted it to go on forever. Please grab these books. They’re so well thought out and so interesting and honestly a ...more

F.M. Boughan is a bibliophile, a writer, and an unabashed parrot enthusiast. She can often be found writing in local coffee shops, namely because it’s hard to concentrate with a cat lying on the keyboard and a small, colorful parrot screaming into her ear. Her work is somewhat dark, somewhat violent, somewhat hopeful, and always contains a hint of magic.
