Ember by, Bettie Sharpe


Everyone loves Prince Charming. They have to--he's cursed. Every man must repect him. Every women must desire him. One look, and all is lost.

Ember would rather carve out a piece of her own soul then be enslaved by passions not her own. She turns to the dark arts to save her heart and becomes the one women in the kingdom able to resist the Prince's charm.

Poor girl. If Ember had spent less time studying magic and more time studying human nature, she might have guessed that man who gets everything and everyone he wants will come to want the one woman he cannot have.


I was mesmerized by this book. Its a novelle about a girl name Ember (Cinderella) and its nothing like the fairytale you have heard before. Ember is actually the bad witch, she doesn't do it to be evil, it was what she was taught to fight the Princes curse. This book was wrote beautifully, it was told by Ember, and I have to say I love how she would interrupt the story and act as if she knew what we were thinking. Bettie Sharpe told a whole different story of Cinderella. I loved it!

I give this book five*****stars. I just wished it was longer:) it was a novella. But I felt it told to story very good in the amount of time given!

*Ember-The main character or Cinderella. She was a witch who in this story was playing the evil role, even though it wasn't anything like evil. I loved her strong headed character who took no bs from anyone. She doesn't want to fall for Prince Charming curse, she trys everything to avoid it.

*Prince Charming-Also know as Adrian. He was handed a gift as a baby no man or women could ever hate him. To him it ended up a curse, no man can deal with so much false love. I dont really know if it was realization or he just couldn't have something he wanted.
