Many years ago Elle first lost her mother then her dad remarried and then she lost her dad then her evil step-mother locked her in the basement taking over the family business. But this evil step-mother knew nothing about Elle’s magic so therefore she was able to escape with the help of her little friend.

Now Elle attends high school at West Lake Prep where humans mix with witches, shifters and fairies hiding away from her evil step-family. To help make ends meet Elle hunts stolen or missing

This is the fourth book set in the Magicorum world, but I actually think this could be read without having read the previous three. The way the story is set up was unique. We have a backstory from three years previous that was all brand new information about both the main characters, and then the was the present story which takes part after the events of the previous 3 books (for the most part, there were a few repeat scenes

If there is such a thing as a perfect Cinderella story, this might just be the book. :)

Elle is no pushover Cinderella. With everything that life throws her way, she gets up, finds a way and fights on. She is warder of the fae, fairy without wings, a jewel thief and one hell of a character. :)

Three years ago, when she was just 15 years old, her mother started to get very sick. Knowing her life will follow the Cinderella template, she knows what comes next. Her mother will die and she will get an

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
There's nothing like knowing that if you fall in love and have the first real kiss that the world you know of will start to crumble. No pressure. There was nothing ordinary about this retelling. There was nothing about this story that said it was once a bed time story. There was so much here to enjoy, laugh at, and almost want to enroll in high school again. At least this particular high school. This was more than I was expecting but on point for having me wanting more of the world of the ...more

This book is just as sassy, snarky, adventurous and imaginative as the rest in this series. I love the take on the fairy tales Christina Bauer has taken. They are imaginative and entertaining. In this one we get the Cinderella template play out.

Elle is a awesome heroine. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and she stands for herself. The ending has you wonder about one of her stepsisters though. What power does she hold within that no one knows. Elle has closed off her heart due to so much pain

I've been a huge Elle+Alec fan for a while now. The two of them have always been funny together, and I just wanted Elle to get her happily every after. That's why I was so excited for this book! My expectations were blown out of the way as Christina Bauer went above and beyond all the other books in this series. I could not have enjoyed this book more!

Alec and Elle are so perfect for each other and so easy to explain. Alec is the funny and sweet guy who isn't afraid to tell Elle how he felt. I

Elle is no ordinary Cindarella nor is Alec an ordinary Prince Charming.
Both have issues, yes and both have family problems, but will they finally be able to get together? Well, it's either that or something bad is going to happen.

It was really nice to read about Elle and Alec, going back to earlier years to get the whole story. Only a very few scenes overlap with the previous books, which was great to read about in another pov and to get a grip on the timeline.
Elle and Alec have separate

Elle and Alec's story is finally here!

This is the fourth book in the Fairy Tales of the Magicorum series, which I personally love to pieces. It's funny, witty and endlessly sarcastic which provides many fun-filled, fairytale-themed antics. Elle is not the typical Cinderella and Alec is hardly typical Prince Charming, but together become an unstoppable team. Elle is actually a fairy destined to follow a Cinderella template where she gets mistreated by her step-family and meets a prince.But

This book belongs to a series but is written so that it can be read as a stand alone. I did read the other books first and would highly recommend doings so as it allows this read to carry more depth and understanding of the characters.

Elle is a fairy with a Cinderella template, which means her life will play out as the well-known fairy tale. Basically. She might have the template, but Elle isn't stupid. She builds up a sturdy foundation through her clever thievery so that when the time comes for

Loved seeing more of Elle's story! I recommend reading the first 3 books but it's not necessary. They are more focused on Elle's best friend but they give more depth to Elle and Alec and their world if you read them first.
Poor Elle really got the short end of the stick with her fairy tale template but she's determined to make her own future and does it with a vengeance. When the queen of hearts and the Cheshire cat get involved Elle and Alec have to work together to get the queen's help before

I don't know how she manages to have just so many stories to tell all the time, and how they all come out so good, but I'm glad for it!

This re-telling of Cinderella mixed with her special brand of paranormal / world building / sense of humor is just a fantastic addition to the series and her book world as a whole. There's not a single story of hers that I don't immediately fall into and come out of feeling both satisfied and like I need more!

Elle and Alec are so fun to follow and I can't wait

I enjoyed the story line, it was great to finally find out the story behind Alex and Ella. The thing that frustrated me was the mistakes in the editing as on some occasions the characters got confused as instead of using Ella's name the author used Briar's name and there were some spelling/grammar errors. Other then that, I can't wait to read the next book yo see where it goes and I've really enjoyed the previous books.

I loved erything about this retelling of Cinderella!! Elle is by far so much more and I absolutely loved getting into her story. And Alec? Oh man, that boy is so much more than just a pretty face. I loved the little references but also it had its own spin. And the ending???? I can't wait to see what comes next!!

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and ...more
