Ember by Bettie Sharpe

Well, what to say about this book... besides it being a somewhat dark and wickedly hot retelling of Cinderella?

Are you tired of the same fairy tales retellings?

If the answer is YES, then this book is for YOU... that is, if you're an adult. Are you?
Because if not, go away, and come back later... really!! I'm serious about it!!

 So this story... has some pretty intense scenes... with some colorful language, _to say the least _ lol, but then it also has some pretty laughable moments!!

Well lets say that the main character, Ember, at the beginning of the story discovers why it isn't a good idea to put a coin in one's mouth... when engaged in certain... activities... and I'm going to leave it at  that (lol). But that combination, helps to tone down things, quite a bit.

This is how the story begins:

"I know you think you’ve heard this story before, but you’re wrong.
Some would have it that this story begins with a virtuous virgin, a young woman of honesty and integrity sucker punched by cruel fortune and forced to sleep among the cinders while her moral inferiors lived the life which was meant to be hers. Bullshit."
This is no fairytale. (Ember)

Exactly! This is much more interesting than our usual fairy tales!!
My advice: Forget all you think you knew about Cinderella, Prince Charming, and the evil stepmother... and prepare yourself to become addicted to this story.

I know I did!
There's so many things that I could say about this story... but then, where would be the fun in it when you get to read it?? :D

So go and read it, and find out for yourself!

Oh, and I would really like to be able to buy this in paperback!!
Just a hint.... *.*
