Can a Princess determine her own fate? Cyra is a princess trapped in a world where he only wants to find her a wealthy prince which she doesn’t want. But there is one young man who might be interesting but a worldly prince he is not. And she has a deep secret that may help her free herself. And there’s a genie. What a wonderful story!

Every little girl wants to be a princess, and Princess Cyra is one with super powers.
She’s surrounded by opulence in her grandfather’s castle, but Cyra can shift into any animal to leave the castle after dark and move amongst her subjects, hoping to learn how their rulers can take better care of them. But the King’s Vizier — an evil, sniveling, greedy toady of the worst kind — has plans to sell Cyra to the highest bidder. She doesn’t want to turn over her rule to a husband who could BUY her, so

Not only do I love fairy tales to begin with, but I adore them being retold and this was no different. In a change of fate, Princess Cyra decides she does not need Aladdin and his wishes to save her people from a horrible fate. Dare she interact with Genie herself? This is a dark and twisty tale, right up my alley. Now that I have found the series, I cannot wait to read the rest. So if you love having Fairy tales retold, in a dark and twisty manner, this is your book!

This Aladdin retelling puts the whole story upside-down and twisted up into a whole new world of Princess Cyra and her royal household. Aladdin isn't her hero, she is her own hero and willing to do anything to root out the evil in her kingdom. This is a fantastic read, even if you aren't a fan of fairy tale retellings.

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Angela Sanders; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

I love the twist

This is such a magical short of the great fairy tail Aladdin. I love the twist to add a more a magical appeal to the original story.

This is definitely a different version of Aladdin. Cyra doesn’t need Aladdin to help her save the kingdom. They’re starving but the palace has parties every night. Totally awesome.
