The boy she’s loathed since childhood: Prince Kellan. Kellan Renard, crown prince of Balavata, is walking a thin line between political success and devastating violence. Newly returned from boarding school, he must find a bride among the kingdom’s head families and announce his betrothal—but escalating violence among the families makes the search nearly impossible.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This reimagining of ‘Cinderella’ presents all the markers of the fairy tale, complete with a magical shoe that secures Blue’s fate, but Redwine has crafted a world filled with dark magic and intrigue as the setting for her story…The romance between Blue and the prince is a slow, simmering burn as childhood antagonism turns to something that is deep and true.” School Library Journal
“Redwine’s flights of fancy aren’t wholesale retellings of the Cinderella story; instead, they are infused with enough originality to bring readers back again and again…Splendid.” Booklist
“The charming leads carry the day…Frothy romance with dashes of intrigue and magic.” Kirkus Reviews
“With poison, fire, and deadly deeds, this tale is hard to put down and even harder to forget.” Maria V. Snyder, New York Times bestselling author, on The Shadow Queen
