    You will adore this magical tale.

    I love a fairytale retelling and this one didn’t disappoint. This is a very original rethink of Cinderella, where Primrose the renegade pixie has taken it upon herself to be a young woman’s fairy godmother without the necessary qualifications or magic. The creativity of this story is what set it apart from other retellings; it was different enough from the Cinderella story that we all know that it wasn’t boring or predictable, it looked more closely at the magical elements that control the story and the rules behind them. It also took a step back from the romance and kept at least one foot firmly planted in the realm of common sense, which was especially good! That said, the writing style didn’t really do anything for me – events unfolded very slowly and didn’t pack as much of a punch as I would have liked. I wasn’t really able to connect with any of the characters either, which I find always detracts from my enjoyment of a story. I think this is a book better suited to people who enjoy a slow burn with their fairytales and some internal monologue of the characters. My favourite character in this book would have to be Ember (can you guess who she represents in the Cinderella world?!), she’s quite happily to deal with things on her own without any magical assistance, and has far loftier priorities in her life than marrying a prince. I recommend this book to fairytale fans, especially those that love a good unicorn! This book is more about the adventure and the magic than the complexity of characters so if those are things that you love in books, you will adore this magical tale.
