Horn Book Review

With echoes of Snow White, this prequel to the other sci-fi fairy-tale retellings in the series explains how Levana came to be such a wicked queen and sets up Cinder's backstory for readers in the know. Though the ambitious and often-deluded royal never quite becomes likable, insights into her character awaken sympathy. A well-told, page-turning story with payoff for series followers.
