"The best Fairy tales are twisted..."

Ember presents a twisted retelling of the Cinderella story, but does so with an original voice, intense imagery, and a memorable heroine whose moral compass is perfectly skewed. The piece is novella length, which leaves a little wiggle room in the character department. There are some side stories presented which leave me wondering if the author has expanded on them in other works (Sylvie and her Beast perhaps?) and I definitely look forward to the story of Nieves I saw posted on her site, I cannot wait to see what she does with a Snow White retelling. This was a satisfying adult themed fairy tale, it kept a good balance between it's erotic scenes and storytelling, which is vital in a shorter piece. The ending did irk me a little, I feel there could have been more build or a stronger confrontation between Rian and Ember, but I love how she tied in the original cutting of the step sister's feet into this version, in fact just about every facet of the original fairy tale was addressed in Ember's story. The writer's attention to these details makes it a worthy adaptation and I will definitely be looking for more from this world.
