In this dark and atmospheric rendition of the Cinderella fairy tale, an intelligent young Englishwoman is made into a virtual slave by her evil stepmother. Her only hope of rescue comes in the shape of a scarred World War I pilot of noble blood, whose own powers over the elements are about to be needed more than ever.

“A dark tale full of the pain and devastation of war…and a couple of wounded protagonists worth routing for.” —Locus

“With colorful characters, Lackey makes her variation of the Sleeping Beauty story great fun to read.”—Booklist

“[Lackey] turns her hand to historical fantasy in this intriguing and compelling re-creation of England in the waning days of its imperial glory.”—Library Journal

“Beautiful phrasing and a thorough grounding in the dress, mannerisms and history of the period help move the story along gracefully…fully fleshed out and credible.  This is a wonderful example of a new look at an old theme.”—Publishers Weekly
