I'm a sucker for fairytale retellings. I loved reading fairy tales as a child and now I adore reading retellings of those stories.

Fated is not your typical retelling. Elle worked in the family bakery and is essentially only one able to leave the house. Her father dies when she was five. She lives with stepmother and 2 stepsisters, who sought refuge in their home. While not officially a stepmother she raised her as her own. Because her family is in hiding she is the only one who can leave the place.

Ella is very hardworking, she works hard for her family and busts her ass in the school so she might get a better chance in life. One day in school her class is attacked and her dreams crumble to the ground.

Now matter how impossible the situation, she tried to think of something, someway to overcome whatever happened. With Weasley, another mage seeking shelter, they came up with a great business idea. However, nothing is ever easy and straight forward for her.

It's such an interesting take on Cinderella's story, with the very imaginative and well-developed world, interesting magical system and amazing story to tell.

Highly recommend it!

Happy reading,
