Publisher Description

Even the Emperor of Sirlende cannot always do as he pleases, but when custom demands he find another bride after the death of his betrothed, a princess he barely knew, Torric Deveras defies his counselors and changes the rules rather than make a loveless marriage.


Ashara Millende is the only daughter of a nobleman, but had her inheritance stolen from her by her unscrupulous stepmother. A servant in the house that should have been hers, she dreams of escaping the drudgery of her life and finding someone who will love her for who she truly is.


When Torric invites all the marriageable women in his kingdom to a five-day holiday of feasts, tournaments, hunts, and balls so that he might choose an Empress from among them, Ashara never dreams that she can attend, much less catch his eye and win his heart. Then a woman with hidden secrets appears who will give Ashara the chance to win her heart's desire — if only she is bold enough to take the first step.


Christine Pope’s Ashes of Roses sets the timeless story of Cinderella in the world of her Latter Kingdoms series, weaving a spell-binding tale of royal intrigue, familial deceit, and the magic of love.

Good read

Fast pace, well written, light and with an entertaining twist that although you know the story has a different approach for the same end. I fecommend it!

A lovely retelling

Another in this series of fairy tale retellings, Ms Pope adds in all the side stories and depth missing from the story familiar from childhood. With real heroes, real evil characters, and real love, the story weaves to its conclusion. Though the end is obvious, yet the means to it are so well wrought and suspenseful that I was unable to put the story down until its satisfying conclusion. You will not be disappointed.
