Although this book was an improvement over the last installment, it still lacked a certain spark from the other Lords of the Underworld books. Most die-hard Gena Showalter fans are aware of her new writing style and either like it or hate it. For me it wasn’t the writing style as much as the substance. This book started out well and ended well, but really just fizzled for the majority of the listen. The whole Cinderella story was a bit different for a LOTU book and just didn’t work for me. I found most of the story boring; with the exception of William. He’s always entertaining no matter what the storyline. I will probably continue with the series simply because I'm 10 books deep now and have to know how it all ends.
Overall I can only give this book 3 stars.

First off, I am a huge Gena Showalter LOTU fan. This book was really lacking the same fire, passion, interest and strenght of characters that her prior books had in abundance. Gena's new writing style is really hit or miss, and this was a big miss. Most of the story was boring, and it was very hard to get into Kane and Josephina as main characters. There was no chemistry or passion - it just seemed off. Also, Kane's nick names for Josphina were very annoying - "tinkerbell" or "tink" - it just seemed to grind on my nerves. On the positive side, Gena did set the stage for a couple of other books to come that might be interesting! I just hope they are the "old" Gena style!
