End of Ever After E. L. Tenenbaum


It's been five years since Ella's faery godmother offered her the chance to attend the royal ball. Five years since Ella danced away with the prince's heart. Five years since the prince rescued Ella from a life of servitude and made her his princess.

It's been five years, and everything's falling to pieces.

Now, Ella looks back on her fairytale rise from soot-stained Cinderwench to the queen the people call Cinderella. Ignored and humiliated all her life, she never could believe her good fortune in marrying such a handsome Prince Charming. She never either expected what was to follow; not the betrayal, not the lies, not the backstabbing ever after. Ella is desperate to figure out how, despite her best intentions, everything went so horribly wrong, and what, if anything, she can do to get back her happy ending.

Such a great story! I loved the twist on a fairytale-- it was unique and an amazing read! I will say that some of the language is clunky and could flow much better, but other than that I think you did a fabulous job with this book!

I really enjoyed this book! It was good premise and well written. The author uses vivid language and imagery which made the story rich and layered for an adult reader. I love how a childhood fairy tale became an adult novel.
Kudos to a talented author on great creativity !

I liked that this book kept the original Cinderella story intact, mostly, and focused instead on what came after "Happily Ever After." It was a thoughtful continuation of the Cinderella tale. I also appreciated that Cinderella made reference to a God that she believes in: it's a detail not often expressed in this type of literature.
Some of the dialogue is too head-on; I think it might be better if exposition could be delivered differently. Perhaps by characters discovering information, as opposed to discussing it?
The ending is just past the point of believability- I think the seeds for it are in the novel; they have to be developed further for the ending to be the logical conclusion to what takes place before.

Similar Stories : It brings to mind Ella Enchanted, but that book re-imagines Cinderella's whole story, not just the end. I can't think of anything that's quite similar. It is unique.
