M. Lynn has a way of grabbing ahold of your heart and giving it a squeeze with the words in her stories. She also takes the classic tales and princesses I grew up with and turns them into young women with a purpose.

GLASS PRINCESS gives us the ending to Helena and Dell's story, which is inspired by Cinderella. When Cole takes over the throne, Helena finds herself in Bela with a character we're all familiar with: Etta. Here, she struggles with grasping the tragedy that happened back home. She must decide if she wants to reclaim the thrown and how she should go about it. But no matter what she chooses, Dell will remain at her side.

This series has so much raw emotion that you become invested in the characters and want what's best for them. It's a page turner that you won't want to put down. I absolutely love Dell, even though Edmund is still my favorite. I love how this duology connects to the Rapunzel retelling.


I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves the rise and fall of kingdoms, the makings of a badass princess fighting to reclaim her role as queen, and the magical properties of the characters and the story itself.
