Summary

Cinderella retold 

In the wake of her father’s death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother.  

Consumed with grief, she finds her only joy by the light of the dying hearth fire, re-reading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. 

When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she begins to believe that her wish may be granted.  

But the day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King’s royal Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash’s capacity for love — and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.  

Entrancing and romantic, Ash is an empowering retelling of Cinderella about the connection between life and love, and solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepest grief.

My gay little heart 💕

Love this book! It was one of the first books when I was in high school, before coming out, that I really connected with on a whole different level.
