Cinderella is a tired tale It s been done It s been redone It s been re redoneSo if I m going to pick up yet another retelling it really has to blow me away I need to be wowed My socks must be knocked offThose socks remained firm Not even a twitchIn this version Ash our Cinder is raised by her unsurprisingly evil stepmother and her only joy is rereading fairytales next to the fireplace ashes hence the name Ash how clever She would rather be alone in her room than alone in the midst of a celebration she was not a part of Just when her life is at the pinnacle of hopelessness and she s sinking into a deep depression she meets Sidhean He s a member of the fae and promises to whisk her away to his landsSoon he s all she can think of Only his promises aren t what they seem and she s none the wiser Every time you come near me he said you come closer to the end of everything Then one day Ash meets Kasia the ueen s Huntress and through their friendship and eventually love she finds the courage and hope to keep living With her heart hammering in her throat Ash asked Will you do me the honor of dancing with me She looked up at Kaisa and the huntress look of bewilderment was changing slowly to a small tentative smile I liked the idea of this one The darker aspects of the tale the menace of the fairies and the sweet romance between Ash and Kasiaonly nothing really clicked for me The characters felt flat their phrases alternated between wooden and cliche and the romance was just too predictable No sparkThe strongest emotion I felt was just overwhelming boredom and exasperation I lost time that I can never get backYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

Ash AUTHOR Malinda Lo Free download ¹ 4 characters Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Malinda Lo Cinderella retold In the wake of her father's death Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother Consumed with grief her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire rereading the fairy tales her mother once told her In her dreams someday the fairies will steal her away as they are said to do Wh. I will pick Disney s version of Cinderella over Ash any day and without the slightest hesitation For a book with such a provocative potentially controversial premise Ash is dreadfully painfully dull and lacking in strong emotion and vibrant characters This retelling is both familiar and slightly new albeit in an uninteresting and directionless way In this version orphaned Ash is forced to be a serving maid to her not so evil stepmother and stepsisters But instead of sneaking into the royal ball and meeting The Prince Ash comes across a fairy prince and a huntress with whom she has occasional long walks in the woods The Prince never becomes Ash s viable suitorOn a technical level the book is written well enough Lo s style has some elegance to it However the style doesn t compensate for the novel s weak plotWhere was the conflict I d like to ask first I finished the book still searching for one Accepting one s own homosexuality certainly isn t it In the novel s world being a lesbian is not forbidden and the main character never for a moment struggles with her sexual awakeningIs it Ash s choice between the fairy prince and the Royal Huntress then No again Considering how little chemistry the heroine has with either of them that is not the answerOr maybe it is Ash s shady deal with her fairy suitor But that works out so easily it s not even worth mentioningI have no guessesWhat makes this already plotless story even less palatable is the lack of any strong feeling in it There is no passion of first real love there is no fight against time even the reliable anger towards the stepmother isn t there because this usually easily hated character isn t sufficiently hate inducing There is not even some humor or witty or heartfelt dialog to liven things upMy overall impression of Ash is that it is dull boring and pointless If not for its lesbian Cinderella fame I doubt this novel would have gained any readers at all
