I think I genuinely enjoyed this one more than Kill Me Softly. This is most likely due to the fact that the irritating Mira is gone and has been replaced with the awesome Dusty, the Cinderella of our story.
It was an interesting reimagining of the classic Cinderella; the one with ashy lentils, magical trees, and severed foot appendages. I don’t think I’ve run into a retelling that managed to keep the dark, grittiness of the original Cinderella.
I think it would be great if Sarah Cross decided to write a series of short stories set in Beau Rivage, as there are so many characters with stories yet to be told!
