Heart of the Raven Prince: A Cinderella Retelling (Entangled with Fae)
About this deal
This cute little fantasy had me kicking my feet, blushing, giggling to myself, and consuming all five hundred pages in 12 hours. This was a fresh and very satisfying Cinderella story complete with hot fae, magical twists and a beautiful love story. i despised the stepmother and stepsisters so much that i had to put the book down multiple times and tell myself that they're supposed to be vile and annoying but like.
The chapters are alternative, written either from Ember's POV or Franco's and they both offer a chance to see things through different perspectives, making it easier to love Franco (even more than I already did! Along the way, she has to pretend to be a princess and become the Prince Franco's new love interest. The Entangled with the Fae series continues onto it’s next retelling, bringing Cinderella to life in all of its Fae glory.You may find some affiliate links on this site, fully disclosed as such, that allow me to receive a small commission for purchases made. their story was sweet and of course it had its well-known tropes such as enemies to lovers, arranged marriage, etc. Her writing is that kind that pulls you in with the first line you read and lets you out only after you are broken, satisfied and a mess! Even though Heart of the Raven Prince is the second book in the Entangled with Fae series, it is a complete standalone story that can be read without reading any of the related books.
It needs to be said that I liked this one much more than the previous book and that's saying something cuz the latter was a beauty and the beast retelling.I’m a sucker for anything fairytale related and this did not dissapoint<33 This is a cinderella retelling set in a world with fae. I will honestly say I went into this book because of this phrase “ ACOTAR meets Bridgerton in this standalone fairytale retelling of Cinderella“. everything, as the story goes, falls into place as it should and thus, justice has been served and love prevails.
I absolutely adore her and even through this book is only 490 pages long, we really got know her as a person and I loved that!
A beautiful faerie universe, an amazing magic system, fun and interesting characters, an intriguing plot and a romance that is to die for! Circumstances strengthen the string of fate and Ember finds herself in yet again another bargain where she has to pretend to be the royal princess and court Franco. He is way more than just a Prince and the way we get into depth with his character, his backstory and his issues made me love him even more. It also follows Franco, a fae prince who is misunderstood and rarely lets people see/know his true self to the point that he lets people spread a reputation about him that is mostly a series of unfortunate misunderstandings.
Heart of the Raven Prince is a complete stand-alone novel set in the same world as The Fair Isle Trilogy.I've already loved this world for some time now, but the characters, reveals, personal growth and HEA ending were my favorite parts. With the social season in full swing, and bringing with it a horde of husband-hungry socialites, he\'ll do anything to delay the pressures of both marriage and the crown. Until then, all she has to do is wear the glamour, pretend to court the prince, and above all else, not fall in love. The prince is a fae raven shifter and our main character Ember is the unfortunate half fae stepdaughter to a wicked creature her father decided to marry. I think they brought the best in each other and they both had much more to gain than a mate; Franco found love but also the strength to stop hiding his real self, to live up to his worth and to become someone great, while Ember finally managed to accept and actually love her power and discover a place where she belonged.
