They could be filed away as creative twists, but the step-mother is decidedly non-evil. The star of the plot really is the politics around the military and uniting the two countries via a marriage alliance. Can you really ever beat that? Rating : TORN.

Stil stumbled backwards over a stump, which sent him crashing head over heels to the muddy forest floor. Lightning flashed again, illuminating the nightmare when it arrived, carrying its rider.

The nightmare was a horse—if it could be called that—which fed on nightmares and craved absolute darkness. It was skeletal, but its nostrils glowed, and its eyes were the same white as spoiled milk. It screamed a sound more similar to glass breaking than the neigh of a horse and gnashed its abnormally sharp teeth before its rider pulled it back.
Stil reached into his soaked clothes and slapped a red feather on the soaked stump. Even though it was old and saturated, the stump exploded into a roaring fire. The horse spooked and shied away from the dazzling flames, shrieking in pain as the light burned its eyes. Stil leapt out of his roll and ran forward, his eyes hooked on the glimmering Verglas border. Behind him the rider growled, kicking the nightmare forward.
Stil hit the ground just as ice crunched, and giant stalagmites popped out of the ground—almost impaling the nightmare with sword-sharp tips and edges. The rider reined in the nightmare as the ice wall formed, popping and cracking as more ice and snow gathered to create an impenetrable barrier that glowed unnaturally. I wish to say more but then I would ruin the whole story. I really do not like the Cinderella fairy tale. Especially the Disney version.
Actually the new live action one wasn't so bad. Mostly to do with Robb Stark being Prince Charming. Okay Let's do this!!! I really wanted to like this one. I like retellings and even though the first book of the series underwhelmed me, I wanted to give this author another try. This wasn't without its charms: dual pov, totally clean and safe, no OP drama of any kind, and an h who wasn't a hormonal mess. I appreciated a strong h, who wasn't languishing around in a dilapidated castle, waiting for someone to help her out.
I also liked the message of loyalty and hard work being rewarded. However, the development of this I really wanted to like this one. However, the development of this story was lacking.luifrogconfi.tk

Both MCs were a little one dimensional and the conflicts that this world was experiencing were too easily resolved. Plus the romance was lukewarm at best. Who knows why the MCs fell in love with each other? They explain it to each other, but there really wasn't any chemistry on the page. I loved this book.
Absolutely loved it. It's a great spin on the traditional Cinderella fairy tale.

The interactions between the hero and heroine were hilarious. I kept laughing. I loved how strong the heroine was. When there was a problem, she tackled it. If she didn't know what to do, she figured it out. There was action and magic and lots of laughs.
One negative: No sex scenes between the hero and heroine. After all the build up of their romance, I would have liked a peek. Overall, I loved this I loved this book.
Overall, I loved this book. View 1 comment. This was pretty close to perfect for me, like most of Shea's books, and I pretty much loved everything about it! The characters were wonderfully fleshed out, even some of the more minor ones, and there was character development! Jun 21, Camille rated it really liked it Shelves: kindle-bookshelf , fairy-tale. I was a bit worried when I started Cinderella and the Colonel , as the beginning was rather slow and full of dull politics.
It was enough to keep me reading, but the story kind of dragged until Colonel Friedrich entered the picture. Once he did, I thoroughly enjoyed his and Cinderella's slow-burn romance. A I was a bit worried when I started Cinderella and the Colonel , as the beginning was rather slow and full of dull politics. Their love is sweet, with cute bantering and genuine affection for one another.
It was delightful watching them come together. The romance aside, this was a creative take on Cinderella.

The book had a strong message of forgiveness and empathy, which I loved. Overall, Cinderella and the Colonel was a lovely and unique Cinderella retelling. I found this preachy and shallow. While I appreciate a proactive heroine in what is typically a passive fairy tale, this Cinderella had no depth. Neither did the prince aside from being a bit of a jerk that never realized that called perfect stranger "pet" isn't very polite.
The ideas of attacks from dark magic were only superficially developed and really did nothing to contribute to the story or character development. The only real antagonist was the queen, and that whole thing was resolved i I found this preachy and shallow. The only real antagonist was the queen, and that whole thing was resolved in two pages of "sorry I was mean" dialogue. I love a good Cinderella story, but I didn't feel like this was one. Perhaps I would feel differently if I read some of the other books in this series, but this book didn't make me want to.
I picked this book up for free on Amazon when a friend of mine said that it was free.
