FTC FYI: Received an ebook in exchange for an honest review.


Sydney lives her nightmares every night. While other teenagers are dreaming of boys or traveling to exotic places, she must run a staircase with no beginning or no end, or a terrible debt will never be paid.

Just before her seventeenth birthday, the dreams change. She is no longer alone.

But her nightmares don’t end when she wakes up. Her stepmother and stepsisters threaten to ruin everything she holds dear. She must protect the secret that both she and her father have magic or they will use it to their advantage.

As Sydney learns to control her magic, what seemed impossible before—escaping her stepmother and those ever-present stairs—is now at her fingertips. When she learns the ultimate plan of her evil captor, Sydney must stop her at all costs, or she will forever be trapped inside her nightmares.

My Review

I really enjoyed this twisted-tale of Cinderella.  While reading I had many questions as to why characters were acting a certain way, or why something was happening and Jaclyn did a great job of addressing those, and then some.  Sydney had to endure quite a bit from her step-mother and step-sisters.  And I loved her reasoning for putting up with all their abuse, she does it for her dad.  There was a great twist to the story on the Fairy Godmother, which was so sweet and fun.  One character in particular drove me crazy, but I was thrilled with the end result for all the characters.  This is a fun fantasy book that is clean and page-turning.

4 out of 5 stars.  Jaclyn released a bunch of books this year!  Check her out on the links below.

About the Author

Jaclyn is an Idaho farm girl who grew up loving to read. She developed a love for writing as a senior in high school, when her dad jokingly said she was the next Dr. Seuss (not even close but very sweet). She met her husband, Steve at BYU and they have six happy, crazy children that encourage her writing. After owning a bookstore and running away to have adventures in Australia, they settled back down in their home in Utah. Jaclyn now spends her days herding her kids to various activities and trying to remember what she was supposed to do next.


Dad handed over the ticket and turned to us. He noticed me staring and glanced back to where the valet had been standing. “That's Luke. He’s the son of one of my partners.”
“He’s gorgeous,” Sarah said. “Do you think he’d go out with me?”
Dad laughed. “Maybe so. He’ll be coming to Sydney’s birthday party, along with a few other young men I think you would prefer over Luke. Dillon seems more your type.” He gestured toward another guy coming up to the restaurant with his family.
Sarah wrinkled her nose. “No, he’s more Kaylee’s type. Oh! Here’s Luke with the car.” She hurried forward so she would be standing in front when he opened the door.
I rolled my eyes and glanced over at Kaylee. She was too busy staring at Dillon to notice me. Sarah was right, I guess. I climbed in the other side of the car, hoping to avoid the embarrassment of Sarah throwing herself at Luke.
Dad climbed in right after. “You don’t want to meet him?”
I shook my head. “No. Not right now, at least. Dad, that feeling is here. Someone’s here that shouldn't be, and I don’t know who. What if it’s Luke?”
“You felt it too, huh? There’s a bad feeling here, but it’s not him. His dad—” He stopped when Julie climbed in.
