Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Heralds of Valdemar series comes an enchanting new novel.

In the land of Five Hundred Kingdoms, if you can't carry out your legendary role, life is no fairy tale....

Elena Klovis was supposed to be her kingdom's Cinderella - until an accident of fate left her with a completely inappropriate prince! Determined not to remain with her stepfamily, Elena set out to get a new job - and ended up becoming the Fairy Godmother for the land.

But "Breaking with Tradition" was no easy matter. True, she didn't have to sleep in the chimney, but she had to deal with arrogant, stuffed-shirt princes who kept trying to rise above their place in the tale. In fact, one of them was so ornery that Elena could do nothing but change him into a donkey.

Still, her practical nature couldn't let him roam the country, so she brought the donkey - er, the prince! - home to her cottage to teach him some lessons. All the while keeping in mind that breaking with tradition can land everyone into a kettle of fish - sometimes literally!

And so begins a whole new tale....

    Story
    "quirky"

    well written and performed. Nowhere near as inane as those usually found in the genre.
    Though not riveting or meaningful - it is a pleasent, imaginative and inoffensive offering from an author I usually find more serious.

    "Missing key points and rushed story"

    I was excited about this book because if the potential I thought it had to be a great read. However I was disappointed not only was the story not that great but it skipped so many key details. The main characters were suppose to fall in love but there was no showing or building up of it until randomly she wanted him to stay. If she had added some more story to them falling and not rushed or skipped it I would have enjoyed the story more. Honestly it left me wanting and I doubt I will read any more done by the author.

    "Good story. I prefer book two, however."

    Well written and easy to listen to. a very engaging story, but I was displeased by the pairing of the good girl and the annoying terrible boy.
