This companion to Grounded combines humor, revolution, magic, and romance for the most delightful Cinderella retelling since Ella Enchanted.
Ella Coach has one wish: revolution. Her mother died working in a sweatshop, and Ella wants every laborer in the Blue Kingdom to receive fairer treatment. But to make that happen, she'll need some high-level support.
Prince Dash Charming has one wish: evolution. The Charming Curse forced generations of Charming men to lie, cheat, and break hearts - but with the witch Envearia's death, the curse has ended. Now Dash wants to be a better person, but he doesn't know where to start.
Serge can grant any wish - and has: As an executive fairy godfather, he's catered to the wildest whims of spoiled teenagers from the richest, most entitled families in Blue. But now a new name has come up on his list, someone nobody's ever heard of: Ella Coach.
This is a story about three people who want something better and who together find the faith to change their worlds. It's Cinderella brilliantly reimagined and a delightful expansion of the wonderful world of Tyme.

I have heard numerous retelling a of Cinderella and this is one of the best. There are nuances from the original story, but so many fresh ideas that the reader is bogged down by monotony. I enjoyed the allusions to Morrison's Rapunzel story .. Just enough to know they are part of a series, all living in the Realm of Tyme. The Kingdoms are designated by colour as are the fairies from each Kingdom. My only disappointment is that there isn't a "next" story available yet. By the ending of this story, I can guess it takes place in the Crimson Kingdom and a dark malevolence is featured. I hope it's not too long of a wait. I'm ready now.
