Publisher's Summary

Once Upon a Time meets Game of Thrones in book two of New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter’s magical, romantic dark fantasy series, in which the fairy tales we know and love are prophecies of the future. 

Welcome to the Forest of Good and Evil, where villains may be heroes and heroes may be villains…it all depends on who you ask. 

Ashleigh Ansklelisa may be called the Glass Princess due to her weak heart, but Saxon, king of the Avian, knows she is more dangerous than broken glass, in this Cinderella retelling that sweeps readers into the magical land of Enchantia, filled with treacherous enemies, unexpected allies, forbidden love, and dangerous magic! 

Can destined lovers find their way to each other, or will evil win the day? 

Everything changes at the stroke of midnight as one determined princess fights for her legacy, her love, and the crown that is her destiny.

Twists and Turns, Fire and feathers

When Fairy Tales take a turn for the worse. 3 times over the story was attempted and finally they got it right. Yea, I’m talking about the characters. One thing I love is taking a story we all know and twisting it to a new (yet similar) end. Gena Showalter takes us on a fiery journey of love, loss, destruction, flight and redemption. The character development is done extremely well. Taking a character from the depths of despair and misery to power and joy. And yet another character from hate and confusion to love and glory. Yes, this one has it all. Give it a go and see for yourself.

Great twist on Cinderella

I love all of Gena's books. It took me a minute to get into this one and it seemed more predictable, but I loved the story. I really enjoyed having the male and female narrators!

Loved it!

Highly recommend. Must read. Slow burn, but so worth it! Love the narration, both narrators have some mad skill.

A must read!!

All I can say is...I want more, Now!! I loved every minute of this fairytale and hate that it's over,for now. Action packed from the first chapter to the last. Never a dull moment. You'll be on the edge of your seat the entire time! I absolutely love Saxon, sorry Roth but you've been dethroned in this ladies heart 😉
