When joined together, Cinderella's slippers grant the wearer her heart's desire. But whose wish will be granted?
When Cinderella’s glass slipper is stolen, Queen Felicia sends her faithful steward Terrance to the real world to retrieve his love and witch-in-training, Bianca Frost. The power of the glass slipper in the wrong hands could ruin peace in Everafter. Bianca must gather every bit of magic she has learned in the past few weeks to find the slipper and protect her new love. Together, Bianca, Ming, Prince Ferdinand, and Terrance venture deep into the heart of Everafter to seek clues as to who has stolen the slipper and why. Along the way, they uncover what happened to the Seven Dwarves after Snow White married the prince, but also learn the awful risk of tampering with black magic and the high price that must be paid for magical aid, even when used for good.
Bianca and Terrance’s relationship is put to the test. Through the pain of suffering and loss, Bianca must determine if following her gallant boyfriend into his faraway world is in fact her heart's desire.
Glass Frost is the sequel to First Frost and it was a very fun and adventurous read. I loved being back with the characters and seeing them all interacting with one another again. Glass Frost was a very fast paced read for me and the characters make for an easy to fly through the book. The book brought out some humor which I appreciated and there was a lot more action in this book than there was in the first and that was really exciting! There wasn't much waiting. Things started off almost immediately and it picked up right where the last book left off.

Bianca has definitely grown on me, but I do feel as though she can jump head first into a decision without really examining the situation all that much. In Glass Frost, Bianca is asked to help get back one of Cinderella's glass slippers that has been stolen and also to protect the other slipper that is held in their family museum. I have come to love these little adventures that the characters go on. Prince Ferdinand and Terrance are definitely a favorite of mine. Prince Ferdinand's character is hilarious and I love when he makes an appearance in the books. I also like Ming as well, but I feel like she disappears way too much for my liking. Why even join the journey if you're going to disappear halfway through it? That wouldn't have been so annoying if she hadn't have done it in book one as well.

Overall, this book was fun and really enjoyed it. It was fast paced just like the first and the characters have become very close in this book. I like the bond that they all have with each other. I received a copy for review from the author. All thoughts are my honest opinion!


  1. I have seen some reviews of this, I love retellings and so glad to have learned about this series, looks fun!

  2. Sounds like a really fun fairy tale based book Janina, thanks for sharing your lovely review!

  3. Ooh, this sounds very interesting. I like books with characters that are easy to relate to. And it's a retelling that is kinda related to the original, isn't it? Like an indirect retelling of sorts since it has fairy tales, but she's not the fairy tale character or she's not representing fairy tale characters...unless she's the fairy godmother? She IS helping Cinderella after all XD
