Review

Kalynn Bayron does more than re-write a fairytale ... She breaks it apart and rebuilds it into a wholly original and captivating story where girls finally decide for themselves who lives happily ever after (New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer)

A richly diverse and lovely read ... relevant, modern and inclusive (NetGalley Reviewer)

This was gay, romantic and perfectly set, with a mixture of traditional fairy tale elements that were flipped on their head and new elements that made it seem less susceptible to tropes and problems. It was a really enjoyable read and really put an exciting, original spin on the Cinderella tale (NetGalley Reviewer)

Did somebody say feminist? As someone who was raised on fairy tales and Disney, practically conditioned to believe the woman was supposed to be rescued by the man, I ADORED this book. I was captivated from the start and the inclusion of LGBTQIA+ themes warmed my heart. I can't wait to see what Bayron does next (NetGalley Reviewer)

Cinderella Is Dead is an incredible feminist retelling of the classic tale I never knew I needed in my life, but I'm so glad it exists (NetGalley Reviewer)

Full of power, humour, strength and love, "Cinderella Is Dead" shows itself to be one of the most engaging novels I've encountered this year. With a powerful story that is about doing what is right and a host of characters you come to care for deeply, I can find so few faults with this. It will be one I recommend to everyone over the next few months (NetGalley Reviewer)

Book Description

A thrilling and original twist on the Cinderella story - breaking stereotypes of race, gender and sexuality to create a brand-new YA fairytale and a heroine for our times

5.0 out of 5 stars All in for a feminist Cinderella retelling!
By Reader1996 on 13 August 2021
Not to discompose my sexist scholars, but fairy tales that we grow up reading and listening to have always been about turning women against women.

Cinderella? Check.

Snow White? Check.

Sleeping Beauty? Check.

Rapunzel? Check.

The good queen, the bad queen, the helpless king, the damsel in distress, and oh! The knight in shining armour. Don't you ever grow tired of it? I know I didn't! Lol.

In this spellbinding retelling of "Cinderella", everything is topsy-turvy. A rusty spoon galvanized in the colours of a rainbow that the dark clouds strive to engulf into oblivion. Terrified and downhearted, the women of Lille are treated like fodder, traded like cattle. Good men are silent, bad men are king. And Cinderella? Dead for 200 years. It's not her story but of Sophia's. Cinderella is but a ghost that lurks over the destiny of Lille's women like a shroud. The story of the flaming sword has been manipulated to leave a spine-chilling legacy.

There is no dearth of treachery, cowardice, friendship, or love, for Sophia in her quest for pride and equality. I liked how each of the characters held their own. Remember when you chewed on that elaichi in your biriyani and immediately wanted to kick off a murdering spree for the next one decade? Yeah, that's King Manford, a.k.a. our bad guy. My love, he'll make your blood boil in all shades of elaichi.

This was one of the very few novels at this point which was able to completely blindside me as to the intentions of a beloved character. And I do mean BELOVED! Oh God. I mean, I know it is supposed to feel personal, but GOD was the author cruel!!

Such a mindblowing 5-star read, I'm enthralled. Cinderella, her stepmother, her stepsisters, her prince charming... be prepared to leave all your "but this is a fairy tale" excuses at the doorstep before you pick this one up. I mean, you probably shouldn't be reading this if you feel like that anyway! This story is about defiance, about setting the dark on fire. Not your usual "Yes, My King" stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book!
By Ellen Jessica on 27 September 2021
The following contains both book review (story)
and product review (delivery and that kind of stuff)
Book review-This is a story that takes place 200 after Cinderella Story. Very opposite from the actual Cinderella and that is what makes the book amazing. A underrated book and good for early teens.
Product review- delivery was pretty fast and the book was in pretty good condition. It has a minute damage which probably happend in the delivery process.

5.0 out of 5 stars It blew my socks off - well worth a read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 August 2021
Where do I start with this? I didn’t think too much of it when I bought it; I assumed it would be a cheesy YA and maybe a bit dull. Well, it blew my socks off. I DEVOURED this book.

From the very beginning I was hooked. There was always something going on, the author was constantly building the tension and uncertainty. And the thought that went into this retelling; it was so well done. Whatever you think about Cinderella; prepare for it to be turned on its head!

The characters were brilliant, I loved them all (unless they were evil), and the relationships between each was perfect. Add a dash of humour too and it’s a winning book.

As for the YA label; Amazon suggests it to readers aged 12+… I’m not entirely sure I’d agree, since there is a degree of peril throughout and even a public execution 😳

I also appreciated that this novel features a black protagonist, and features queer relationships.

Some trigger warnings to consider⚠️ Female oppression, domestic abuse, homophobia - but the book fights against these issues 💪🏼

I don’t want to reveal too much about the story; I think the blurb is suitably vague , but I hope that if you read this you’ll be on the edge of your seat too, just like I was
