Sinful Cinderella by Anita Valle

About

And you thought the stepsisters were wicked….

I’m not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That’s what I WANT them to think. Because then they won’t suspect what I’m really up to.

The ball, the prince – it’s all part of my plan to come out on top. Stepmother and her demented daughters will pay for every floor I have scoured, every sneer I have borne. They don’t know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself. They can’t see that my heart is black as midnight, rotten as a poisoned apple.

They’re about to find out.

My Thoughts

I love fairytale retellings. It’s one of my favorite things to read. I love to see how an author takes what most people know, and give it a good twist.

I love it even more when it’s a dark twist.

I think you can tell from the title and cover that this is a dark retelling of Cinderella. It’s a short retell, but it’s SO GOOD, IT’S GREAT.

We all know Cinderella is supposed to be sweet, innocent, and naiive. But this Cinderella. She’s so much better. She’s dark, sinful, evil. Her only thoughts revolve around getting more magic. She has to be good for more magic to form in her decanter. But on-board being good, when you’re born to be bad. When the Prince sends out a royal invite,inviting all single females to come to a ball, Cindy knows she must go. But first, she must help her ugly, dumb stepsisters.

Cinderella gets to Β the ball with help from her fairy godmother. She has 2 hours. Stroke of midnight. Upon arrival, Cindy is clearly the most beautiful, the most everything. The Prince finds her to be exactly what he wants. But, she runs away. Leaving behind a tiny glass slipper.

What makes this story different, since as you can see it’s quite the same story, is the devil in it. Everyone it seems is evil. Her godnutter isn’t evil per say, but fairies are. The Prince is evil, and abusive, which i don’t like but it does add a new level of toxic to Cinderella’s reasons for being bad. Cinderella has an evil heart and wicked soul. All her thoughts are sinful. The stepmother is evil, vindictive, unloving, as are the stepsisters.

When the Prince finds Cinderella, Cinderella does try and escape. But her Stepmother breaks her magical decanter which causes Cinderella to lose her shit. She stabs her Stepmother, killing her. She then agrees to marriage so she isn’t hung for murder. And her revenge on her sisters is to throw them in prison.

Then…y’all…then we find out the Prince’s daughters name is, Snow White.

And Cinderella becomes an evil stepmother herself. Or as she refers to herself, the Evil Queen.

Tell me , this isn’t good! I dare you.
