Randy Taraborrelli. Randall Blythe. Cute short story. Dec 14, Raechel rated it really liked it. They are almost always so fun. This one was no exception — it was different, unique, and enjoyable. I had never read any steam-punk type books previously, so this was a first.
Somehow, Miss Ladd made a loveable, hero of Dashnu in just a short amount of time. I call that talent.
I liked each of the cha 3. I liked each of the characters in this book — besides Madame and her two daughters…they were rather disagreeable. I think much of the classic Cinderella story reflects that — we love these tales, because we yearn to be pursued and fought for. In the fairy tale, it is by a Prince, but in real life it is by our Lord — Prince of all princes.
He does pursue and fights for us at all costs. He is our greater love story. The beginning of the book took me a tiny bit to get into and fully understand however, I think that was just me adjusting to the new genre , but another reading of it shall cure that I think. And I shall read it again. I see nothing wrong with letting the man save the women.
In fact, I think that is partly why we love the tale of Cinderella, because she was saved in a way, and cherished enough to be so. Other than that, though, I enjoyed this light read! Oh and I love the cover — it is just brilliantly beautiful! Nov 12, Ash Rowe rated it it was amazing.
You know for being a short about 60 page story this packs a great story into few words. It follows Cinder an android or something more? Danshu lost a Cinder he tweaked to make actually feel emotions and pain.
I enjoyed this version of Cinderella. I kind of wish it was longer.

That might be the only down side was I enjoyed it so much I wanted to keep reading about the world and the characters. Bridget Ladd has a way with making this steampunkish India type world easy and beautiful to imagine. It was a quick, fun, and beautiful retelling of Cinderella that I wish I had more of.
