Publisher's Summary

You thought you knew the story of Cinderella...You were wrong.

The kingdom needs an heir and Princess Charmaine is quite aware that the job rests solely upon her shoulders. When her elder sister dies, Charmaine must take her place at the ball designed to find her a husband. With the wedding itself already planned, a hundred men stand ready to be chosen as her husband.

Now all she has to do is pick.

As a servant in the castle kitchens, Cynder knows his place beneath the royals.

With the impending war between the people of magic and those of his masters, there is little he can do to stop it. On one hand, he’s a staunch supporter of equal rights for his own kind, but on the other, he has already given enough of his life to these people. The only thing truly holding him to the castle is the attraction he feels for the daughter of his King and Queen.

When the two meet, sparks fly...and not just the magical kind.

Listen to the full Cinderella reverse fairytale series by USA Today best-selling author J.A. Armitage.

Take everything you think you know about fairytales and turn it on its head.

I read all three in one day!

I don’t know why this book set doesn’t have higher ratings! I honestly loved it! All three books were fast paced, and a fun selection type series! I adored the main character, cinder, and of course all the other smaller characters! This truly was fantastic!

Cinderella Adaptation Fairytale With A Twist!

Audiobook Review:
This audiobook series draws you in & keeps you captivated till the end. A highly intriguing reverse fairytale that is a fabulously adaptation of the original Cinderella. Brimming with magic & suspense a spellbinding intoxicated listen. The narrative between the magi & nonmagi is well established & creates a riveting plot with unexpected twists. The writing style is unparalleled & fits the genre perfectly. Romance, mystery and suspense all entwined in audio one.
Audio two begins with the new Queen. Abundance of magic, danger, and romance circling the Queen along with added suspense seeping through the pages. Audio three is the page turning finale which will take you on a immense rising and falling. Ending with a up-tempo adventure.

The narrator did well with the main character voice Charmaine, however, a lot of the supporting characters voices could use a lot of fine tuning. It was like they were screaming & it was awful to hear & took away some from the story. The background & genre were well captured in the MC'S voice. The pace & tone was very good. I recommend polishing up the supportive character's voices as it would make it a five * all around. Overall, a fun & entertaining listening read.

Stupid!

Charm was a royal! Supposedly? But no royal would ever have to go through all the training she did at such an advanced age! As the spare; she would have been trained just like her older sister! That aside I got threw the first book it was okay, but in the second book after she is now Queen a reporter speaks snidely to her and after the interview grabs her and threatens her and she lets her walk away? NO! A Queen would have him arrested and questioned about the terrorist organization he was in league with! I'm done! If you cant write a reasonable imitation of what the caricature is supposed to be, I cant read it. Try the other Boleyn Girl or for a good Cinderella retelling try ever after! I cant sit through this one!

Unusual twist on Cinderella

I love Cinderella and dystopian books so thought I would try this. I got the kindle version via kindle unlimited and then purchased the audible version as well.

The story, though a little slow in places, was interesting and you could see how the female lead evolved during the 3 books which was a good thing as she started off being quite week. I think there could have been a little more world setting for example, I got confused as to why there was tv but no phones or cars, with the answers being trickled throughout the three books.

Reading the kindle version was ok however the audible version was awful. I do not know what the narrator was thinking. The 3 lead voices were ok but every other character I wanted to punch as the voices she used where just BAD it was like every character except the main 3 where some kind of villain or idiot.

I would not recommend the audible version but I would the kindle if you like a HEA twist on Cinderella.
