Ash & BrambleTitle: Ash & Bramble
Author: Sarah Prineas
Pages: 464
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: September 15, 2015

When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit…

The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story.

Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker.

Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after.

Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.

I love Cinderella stories.  So I'm really excited to read this.  What are you waiting on?


  1. OOh yes! So can't wait to read this one!! Love a good fairy tale retelling! Or a twisted tale like this one kinda seems to be instead of the straight up retelling!
