Publisher's Summary

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.

Cinderella Grows Up

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.

adorable alt-tale

I think it would have been a better read than a listen but it was entertaining enough.

Preachy and silly stories, overdone narration.

Would you try another book from Megan Morrison and/or Susan Hanfield and Ramón de Ocampo ?

I might try another book by Megan Morrison, because I enjoyed Grounded Time Book 1, but not if read by these two. I did not enjoy the story and didn't find any of the characters likeable.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrators just didn't fit. Dash was too formal, the fairies goofy sounding. The adult females were okay if overdone, Ella sounded silly.

Any additional comments?

Couldn't wait for it to be over.
