When joined together, Cinderella's slippers grant the wearer her heart's desire. But whose wish will be granted?
When Cinderella’s glass slipper is stolen, Queen Felicia sends her faithful steward Terrance to the real world to retrieve his love and witch-in-training, Bianca Frost. The power of the glass slipper in the wrong hands could ruin peace in Everafter. Bianca must gather every bit of magic she has learned in the past few weeks to find the slipper and protect her new love. Together, Bianca, Ming, Prince Ferdinand, and Terrance venture deep into the heart of Everafter to seek clues as to who has stolen the slipper and why. Along the way, they uncover what happened to the Seven Dwarves after Snow White married the prince, but also learn the awful risk of tampering with black magic and the high price that must be paid for magical aid, even when used for good.
Bianca and Terrance’s relationship is put to the test. Through the pain of suffering and loss, Bianca must determine if following her gallant boyfriend into his faraway world is in fact her heart's desire.
Glass Frost is just as entertaining as the first book in this series. I read and reviewed First Frost last year and I was thrilled when Liz contacted me to review Glass Frost for her. I really liked how the story picks right up, even though a bit of time has passed for these characters, I was eager to jump right in to their story. Bianca is summoned by Prince Ferdinand's mother, Queen Felicia. She is needing a favor from Bianca. But, Bianca has to promise her mother Rose, that at the first sign of danger, she is to return home. Right away, Bianca has to choose whether or not to break her promise to her mom and dad or help the queen.
4 out of 5 stars. This time around the story centers around Cinderella's glass slippers, but I loved how, again, many other fairy tale characters are around including some feisty fairies. One of my favorite chapters was when Bianca, Terrance, and Prince Ferdinand pay a visit to the remaining seven dwarves. Very sweet. Liz has a knack for writing with a teenage voice. Bianca is snarky and fun. I loved the mix of fairy tales in the land of Ever After and I'm really excited for the next book.
