In a world of fae, vampires and shifters, where wishes can be bought and bargained for, Elle is human, bound to her stepmother by a slave charm. Her only hope at freedom is to wish for it. But the Godmother rules the illegal wish trade, and the price she demands is steep. Is Elle willing to pay it?
City of Wishes
Fantastic retelling of Cinderella. Very modern but had so many elements of the old classic, it was blended together so well I hardly put it down until I was finished with it. Elle and Dex are such likable characters you pull for them and you really grow to detest the wicked stepmother who certainly lives up to her name!
The author tied up all the loose ends in a heart pounding action packed way. The characters are endearing and realistic. She still threw in a few surprises. Loved it
I received an ARC of this book and this is an honest review
Happily Ever After
To start with I’d just like to warn fellow readers that this is the sixth and last part in a serialized story, so you should have read all the others before this one for the story to make sense. Okay, with that out of the way, let’s get on with the review.
The sixth installment of City of Wishes, The Everafter Wish, finds Elle, Dex, and their friends returned from the quest that granted Elle magic and served as payment for the wish granted by the Godmother. Next, it is time to confront the King with the fact that humans can also have magic and should be treated equally to the other High Races. That doesn’t go exactly as planned but I don’t want to spoil it by going into detail.
Elle and Dex are still the cutest, the Godmother is still the worst… But the plot still came with plenty of twists and turns! I have to say that the ending of the main storyline was tied up much more neatly than what I’ve come to expect from Rachel Morgan and I honestly don’t know how I feel about that… Apart from that, the author left plenty of storylines unfinished when it comes to secondary characters, so I suspect this isn’t the last of her stories we’ve seen in this universe.
