She wishes she could fit in. But if humans discover her secret, her life will be no fairytale.
Ellery “Elle” Milford needs to keep her fairy heritage undercover. But after her wicked stepmother refuses to let her go to the royal ball with the fully human kids, the sixteen-year-old half-breed defiantly parties with her smoke sprite bestie… who promptly gets arrested. And the only way to rescue her is for Elle to cut a deal with her fairy godmother: All the magic necessary to infiltrate the palace in exchange for assassinating the prince.
Determined not to harm a hair on the heir’s noble head, the reluctant hitwoman’s mission goes sideways when she falls for the very guy she’s supposed to kill. And after uncovering a plot to destroy every single supernatural creature, Elle is torn between the desires of her heart and the needs of her magical friends.
Can the headstrong half-fairy juggle a budding romance with a daring prison break before it all vanishes in a puff of smoke?

“What a great story - super unique retelling! Characters were so dynamic and interesting. I loved it!” – Reviewer
I downloaded this book because it was free, I had the time and I like fairy tale retellings. I wanted to have a book that wouldn’t stick me to it so I could multitask.
I got the wrong book.
Even though I’ve moved on from YA and the drama and hormones, this book was engaging. It wasn’t high prose but the spunky attitude of Elle, the world-building and the coming-of-age story captured my interest unwittingly. It’s a fun premise in a new world even if the teenage love drama can get a bit much.
I started reading this because I love this author’s other series, I was not disappointed. Once you start reading you don’t want to put it down, it’s so good I read it in two days, now I am going to read the next book so excited to see what happens next. Highly recommend ❤️
received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
While you think this may start as any other Cinderella story it isn't. There are twists intertwined in the story. There were a few grammatical errors but that didn't effect my enjoyment of the book. After reading book 1 I look forward to more in the series.
