characters Moonlight and Ashes

Cinderella takes fate into her own hands in this brand new tale by Sophie MassonWelcome to the story of Cinderella as you've never heard it before There is a girl whose fortunes have plummeted from wealthy aristoc. This is the second book I have read by Sophie Mason in the last couple of months I love her work This one is a fairytale and is based on the story of Cinderella without the fairy godmother and an interesting take on magic Selena is told by her dying mother that she is a Moon Sister but needs to keep this fact a secret as Moon Sisters practised magic and magic has been banned in her country Selena does not know any other Moon Sisters as most of the women have been killed by the Mancers a powerful and very sinister group of men who seek out any woman who can perform any form of magic On her sixteenth birthday she is advised by her mother in a dream to ask her father for a hazel twig which he gathered from the mother s grave This of course is magical and from here we have the ball where she meets the Prince and his best friend Max we see her thrown into prison with a werewolf the desperate escape from danger and then there is the failed rebellion of the Moonsisters and the role Selena must play in righting the wrong done to the Moon sisters after the rebellion The story is an adventure story as much as it is a love story It is the story we love that of a girl who who will take charge of her own destiny I couldn t put it down I loved the main character who is feisty and independent Even when she is in the role of servant she never loses her strength of character and compassion And as the plot develops and she is asked to right the wrong done to the Moon Sisters you know that she will be capable of this Her intelligence her defiance in the face of adversity and her great tenderness will ensure that she succeeds The love story between the Max and Selena is tender and realistic and there is a twist at the end that is so unexpected and exciting A real page turner My only criticism is that the characters of Olga and Andel are not developed well enough Their part in the story is secondary yet they are such interesting characters Along with the love interest and adventure there is political intrigue there is corruption and there is magic A great book for middle school especially for girls Highly recommended

Moonlight and Ashes

Instead this is the story of Selena who will take charge of her own destiny and learn that her magic is not to be feared but celebrated Pure fairytale with all the romance magic and adventure that goes along with i. Moonlight and Ashes is a different take on Cinderella Selena has become the servant of her stepmother and stepsisters Her father is too weak minded or doesn t care enough to do anything about it So when Selena gets a chance to go to the ball and meet the prince she takes it but things don t turn out uite the way they do in fairytalesI was enjoying the first half of the novel with a few exceptions but the second half I was less then impressed with I m not sure what the author was trying to say about well any of it It seemed to have many mixed messages and no real coherence I was disappointed

    I think this book had a lot of potential to be a really good Cinderella adaptation The first half of the book was promising but as the story progressed the plot became convoluted and unrealistic Half of the time I wasn't sure what was happening A major plot development is when Selena realises she has to kill the crown prince You

    This book was sloppily written and sloppily edited I love a good fairytale adaptation as much as the next person like Hale's 'The Goose Girl' or Marillier's 'Wildwood Dancing' but this one was just so unpolished and unconvincing It constantly slips into contemporary language and phrases which absolutely should

    “Accepting the way the magic worked was like starting to tell a story aloud when you didn't know the ending” Although Moonlight and Ashes is based on Cinderella there is no iconic glass slipper and it gets expanded to what makes up a good 75% of the book I read this one after the author's Scarlet in the Snow and while they stand alone I think it would have been better to read them in order as there are some character cameos and world bu
