Retold fairy tales are some of my favorite books. This one retells Cinderella, complete with awful stepsisters and stepmother. However, her fairy godmother is now a fairy wannabe-lover (maybe), and she really wants the attention of the Huntress, not the Prince. While I generally liked this book, I think it thought it was more complex than I think it really was. There were a few plot-lines that didn’t totally gel, and some stuff felt left out and somewhat random. It came up on my list as a GLBT book, but the gay didn’t turn up until the last few pages.
