Did you ever wonder why Cinderella’s Evil Stepmother was so vile? So Mean?
Fourteen years after Prince Charming and Cinderella are crowned as Chalmers King and Queen, Cinderella, Pricilla, and Esmeralda gather at their mother’s deathbed.
Lady Hildegard Roche has nothing but resentment and scorn for the stepchild who culminates all that was stolen from her.
Stunned silent, the sisters learn how tragedy shaped their mother into the woman she became. The question is: Can the sisters forgive her?
The Price of Scorn: Cinderella’s Evil Stepmother is book four in the Cinderella series written by the great Kae Elle Wheeler and let me tell you now book lovers, it is magnificent! The Price of Scorn is an impressive piece of fiction that kept me intrigued and entertained from beginning to end thanks to the authors enthralling literature and fascinating twist on a classic fairytale.
To discuss the plot of The Price of Scorn, I would have to talk about a little bit about the first book. The first book is called The Wronged Princess and this is the description provided by the author:
Finding his mysterious princess by trying her glass slipper on every maiden in Chalmers Kingdom sounded like a brilliant scheme until the silly thing slid quite easily on the foot of the wrong girl. Now how is Prince Charming supposed to find his true love? Unbeknownst to either, his mother, the queen and her feisty twin (Cinderella’s infamous fairy godmother) have a lesson to impart—impulsive decisions, do not a future king make!
Kae Elle Wheeler’s Cinderella series is a twist on the classic tale. The latest book – The Price of Scorn – explores Cinderella’s evil stepmother… why is she so malicious? The premise of the novel is just this, an exploration of Cinderella’s wicked stepmother and why she is just so malicious. What the reader discovers is shocking as well as disturbing. Overall it makes for an exciting read; one that should not be missed!
Kae Elle Wheeler’s book is a marvelous piece of fiction because it humanizes an infamous woman in fairytale history. As a lover of fairy tales ever since I was younger, I have been obsessed with delving into the psyches of such infamous characters. Now this obsession has been fed thanks to Wheeler’s exceptional novel based on the classic tale.
The characterization of Cinderella’s evil stepmother is superb because Wheeler manages to develop her character to a magnificent level. Wheeler takes the reader on a journey of her life and why she is the way she is. It is a fascinating insight into much-loathed character. Wheeler manages to describe her, as well as all of her other characters to a superb level. Each character is well developed and believable, they may be characters from a much-loved fairy tale, but Wheeler perfectly brings them to life and injects some much-needed humanity into them.
To conclude my thoughts on the phenomenal novel that is The Price of Scorn, I would say if you a reader who adores fantasy/fairytales that have a host of brilliant, riveting characters then this sensational book is for you! This outstanding book gets Five Stars from me!
