What would happen if an author went back to the darker themes of the original fairy tales for his plots, and then crossed the Disney princesses with Charlie's Angels? What's delivered is The Stepsister Scheme ?a whole new take on what happened to Cinderella and her prince after the wedding. And with Jim C. Hines penning the tale readers can bet it won't be "and they lived happily ever after."

I found the beginning of this book a bit too full of interpersonal drama but it had me hooked by the end as more characters and plot emerged. The author mixes in Grimm's fairy tales with her own twists on the classics and the resulting book is a fun read. It felt a bit slow and disjointed at times but was still worth reading and made me want to read the sequels.

This is a nice, quick read. It's funny and irreverent, and has a very fresh and unique look at fairy tales and the mythology of princesses and the damsel in distress.

This book definitely packs a lot of action and humor into not very many pages, and I love the powerful, kick-ass heroines. There are also some overtones of more serious themes, such as rape, grief, loss, etc. so this may not be suitable for some younger readers, but I think that most young adults will really enjoy it.
