Hoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy reluctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program, whereby young princes and princesses travel to each other’s countries in the name of better political alliances—and potential marriages. It’s got the makings of a fairy tale—until a hapless servant named Eleanor is tricked by a vengeful fairy godmother into competing with Poppy for the eligible prince. Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers fly in this romantic and action-packed happily-ever-after quest from an author with a flair for embroidering tales in her own delightful way.

    I loved all of her YA books. Dragon Slippers is the best! I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

    I just finished reading this book today! It was a really fun read. It is sort of a retelling of the Cinderella story. I liked the fact that the sequel included another retold fairy-tale, as the first one was a retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. It will be interesting to see if she does another sequel to this one.

    Delightful! I really enjoyed this take on a well known fairytale. I thought the carry over of a few characters from Princess of the Midnight Ball was clever.
    I'd recommend this to anyone who likes fairy tales or fantasy.
