CINDERELLA RETOLD

In the wake of her father's death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, re-reading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she begins to believe that her wish may be granted.

The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King's royal Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash's capacity for love-and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.

Entrancing and romantic, Ash is an empowering retelling of Cinderella about the connection between life and love, and solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepest grief.
Annotation:
In a delicious, genre-bending take on the classic Cinderella tale, Ash is a dreamy, bereft girl who must choose between a seductive, but dangerous fairy, and an alluring, kind huntress. Growing up steeped in fairy tales by her long-dead mother, Ash is treated horribly by her stepfamily after her father dies. On visits to her mother's grave, she meets Sidhean, a fairy she finds herself attracted to, longing to see him more and more. But when Kaisa, a huntress for the King, teaches her how to hunt, Ash discovers feelings she didn't know were possible. Beautifully written, compelling, and delightfully fresh, this is a great addition to the new fairy tale canon.
