Jennifer Blackstream twists tales wonderfully. Matt addis does an amazing job bringing such real feeling characters to life. If you like paranormal fantasy this is the book for you. Definitely worth a listen or two.

I love fairytale retellings.
I love paranormals.
WHY HAVE I NEVER FOUND THE TWO COMBINED BEFORE??!
This book is Cinderella blended fairytale themes - there is something of a reverse Beauty and the Beast in here too with the prince being "blessed" by a witch instead of cursed - ha! Neat twist. UnBeast. And then little things, that I thought couldn't be happenstance - like the Prince's right hand man is Maurice. Coincidence? Maaaybe, but with the layers and nods to different fairytale versions I think not. And I loved that. It was like listening for easter eggs.
The story moved fast, made me laugh, entertained me. Excellent writing, excellent descriptions - here's one: "...His clear blue eyes held all the warmth of an ice sculpture, and all the confidence of a well fed dragon."
Narrator Matt Addis was new to me, but I knew from the sample this was an auditory match for me; perfect voice, spot on intonations/voices for the characters - and the accents! Smorgasbord for the accent lovers. Russian Kirill is one I look forward to hearing in his book =D I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
