Author: C. J. Redwine
Hardcover400 pages
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retellings
Synopsis: Blue de la Cour has her life planned: hide the magic in her blood and continue trying to turn metal into gold so she can help her city’s homeless. But when her father is murdered and a cruel but powerful woman claims custody of Blue and her property, one wrong move could expose her—and doom her once and for all. The only one who can help? The boy she’s loathed since childhood: Prince Kellan.

Kellan Renard, crown prince of Balavata, is walking a thin line between political success and devastating violence. Newly returned from boarding school, he must find a bride among the kingdom’s head families and announce his betrothal—but escalating tension among the families makes the search nearly impossible. He’s surprised to discover that the one person who makes him feel like he can breathe is Blue, the girl who once ruined all his best adventures.

When mysterious forces lead to disappearances throughout Balavata, Blue and Kellan must work together to find the truth. What they discover will lead them to the darkest reaches of the kingdom, and to the most painful moments of their pasts. When romance is forbidden and evil is rising, can Blue save those she loves, even if it costs her everything?

This title will be released on February 12, 2019.

My Review: I love this series so much. And I have to say that although you don't really need to read them all in order it is best that you do. Since we get some great cameos from characters from the other books.  This one is all about Blue or Cinderella.  

I really loved Redwine's take on this tale. In this one Blue is hiding her magic from the world. This was really a blend of a few different fairytales and they all worked hand in hand to make Blue one great character with an even greater story.  

This one gives us a few POVs and each one stood on their own.  I did love Blue the best but everyone else stood well and firm as well.  This was one book that was hard to put down and I can not wait to get a copy of it in print!! 

I will be crying until we get another book set in this world!
