And of course, I voted for Entwined. There are a lot more characters that make an appearance to add layers to the story as well. Other than that though I’m totally happy and not regretful of giving this retelling a chance. I have 3 more of her books from this series sitting in front of me right now, ready to be taken on vacation. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. She was born with NO hair and has no hope of ever growing any Once Upon a Time 1 – 10 of 19 books.
It would’ve been better if Dokey had penned an original tale of her own and said it was inspired by Cinderella.
I loved the cover. The way that Rapunzel came to Melisande and her name was new while staying within the fairy tale frame work. The ball is what I looked forward to and was disappointed that it was basically nonexistent.

Return to Book Page. Open Preview See a Problem? Cendrillon as a character wasn’t perfect for me. I do love the background work Dokey puts into it but I don’t think it’s too much to ask to put the guys earlier into the story. Rich city girls sent to the dameron, they can’t get used to it and are thus sometimes difficult and ignorant of servants.
I came across this book. What makes this book different from other books that I have read is that Cameron Dokey is able to take familiar and popular fairy tale stories like Cinderella, Mulan vameron Rapunzel and she creates a new story, background and identity for each of the characters that is different than the one story of each fairy tale that everyone knows.
Jun 25, Josephina rated it really liked it Shelves: A Retelling of “Cinderella”. Portraying Cendrillon’s stepfamily as a sympathetic unit that eventually forms a strong bond with the heroine is probably the greatest contribution Camwron makes to the story, and it’s certainly more poignant and real than her eventual romance.
Again, I liked it; mostly because of the writing style I think Try the Kindle beforre and experience these great reading features: As a fairytale retelling this really scratched the itch once I managed to forgive its overly stylized, flowery writing. It’s been sitting in my bookshelf for I think a year and today I’m like, I think it’s time to read this!
Each theme flung itself off the page and down my throat, sometimes pressing into my nose and eyes in desperation, so determined to make itself known.
She became accepted into the family and everyone was relatively dokwy to her.

Prince Jian was also a prince worthy of a fairy tale and the Mulan of this story.

I was so exited when I read that she didn’t have hair.
Before Midnight: A Retelling of Cinderella by Cameron Dokey
I odkey like the Prince, but there just wasn’t time for me to love him like I wanted to. They planted watermelons and gigantic pumpkins grew. But before he abandons her for king and court, he brings a second child to be raised alongside befoe, a boy whose identity he does not reveal. I wasn’t mixnight perfection but something more than what we are left with. I loved how the story was about the power of love; not just the romantic love at first sight kind, but love that makes the world go around.
While the ending was still the same, Cendrillon married a prince and lived happily ever after, but there was so much camdron to the message than just marriage. Seriously, how often does fiction do that?
No that’s not where the story ends, but that’s where it starts to get more exciting. When you meet the stepmother and stepsisters in the story, you’re really not sure how the plot will go and you think you already know the story Jun 24, Maggie McGuigan rated it really liked it.
