it was amazing

Another short book picked to get my TBR pile down. This is an intriguing one that I managed to read in one sitting. It's a retelling of Cinderella but with werewolves. The fun thing about knowing (or thinking you know) the story upfront is that it makes you keep reading long after you should have gone to bed is to see if it follows the tale you've grown up with. And it does keep the faith of the original as much as possible. 

I found the whole book enchanting. It read  like the fairytale that inspired it. The characters are richly described. The wicked step-mother is as horrible as you'd expect. I liked the supernatural twist - Ella can't marry the prince as she is a shifter and therefor would struggle to provide an heir. We had the Luna Goddess in place of the fairy godmother and the happy ending these stories insist on. 

Re-tellings of Disney and fairytale stories seem to be big at the minute. I've read a few now. This is definitely one of the better ones. Highly enjoyable.
