Format:Hardcover
Poppy from PRINCESS OF THE MIDNIGHT BALL returns and, along with her unmarried sisters, is currently helping her father regain political alliances by participating in a royal exchange. Now she's living with her cousins, Lord and Lady Seadown, and their daughter, Marianne.

She turns down invitations to balls because she refuses to dance after surviving the curse from her mother. Society soon frowns upon her absence, thus forcing Poppy to attend the balls. Instead of dancing, she joins the gentlemen and plays cards. She and Marianne become friends with the young royal prince staying with the King.

When Prince Christian notices how different Poppy is from other girls, he's intrigued and happy to spend time with her. Some assume a marriage isn't far behind, but before anything transpires, a young, mysterious, beautiful woman enters the picture.

Before long, all the men are falling in love with her and making absolute fools of themselves, while the women detest her. Poppy notices that something's not right. Could the magical protection she's wearing stop her from seeing an enchantment?

Seeing clearly, she recognizes the mystery girl as a previously wealthy young lady fallen on hard times. Instead of dancing and enjoying frivolity, Ellen's now forced to become a maid. Can Poppy stop Ellen from making a terrible bargain with a creature who will demand something horrible in return?

Just when Poppy thought she'd finished with evil, she must battle the Corley to save the lives of those she loves dearly.

One can only hope that Jessica Day George will continue to write more about these charming sisters and their battles with magical, evil creatures. The friendship, sense of self, evil beings, drama, and romance make PRINCESS OF GLASS a must-read for lovers of fairytales and fantasy stories.

Poppy is a b*tch and the prince (I forget his name) was forgettable, but this is still a good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Review 24 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a sort of sequel to Princess of the Midnight Ball, though I would say that you could read this as a stand alone novel as the only real references to the previous book is a short summary of the story of the Westfalin Princesses, and some of the characters.

As you can probably guess by the name of the story, this one is based on the story of Cinderella (though you won't find the name Cinderella anywhere), with the slight twist that the Godmother is the 'bad guy' (though for all I know she could have been in the original story).

Instead of following all of the Princesses antics, this just follows Poppy (who is 16 and the twin of Daisy, I believe she is 4th oldest of the 12 Princesses). Poppy is a heroine full of life, she's mischevious and a bit devil may care, and this makes her story and journey even more enjoyable as you see how her feelings and emotions progress. Throughout the book you also see her coming to terms with, and dealing with, the events in the previous book, and becoming a more independent and happy girl.

I actually found that I was surprised at the ending to the book, like I said in my post earlier today about Princess of the Midnight Ball, it was predictable in the sense that it was a happy ending where good vanquished evil, but the love story that took centre stage was not the one I expected to.

I believe that in this novel, the author has taken a step up from Princess of the Midnight Ball, the story was more fleshed out and there was definitely more depth to them, though this could be something to do with there being far fewer important characters.

“Blast,” Poppy said shakily. “It would have to be dancing. I really was hoping to challenge her to a game of cards.” &quote;

“I’m the strong one,” she sobbed. “The tough one. Everyone says so. I’m not like Daisy, I’m not like Lily, I’m not gentle and sweet and ladylike. My father says it, everyone says it. When we had to dance, at the end, every night and we were so tired and sick I heard Papa saying to the doctor, ‘Ask them, Hans, see if they’ll tell you what’s happening. But don’t bother with Poppy. She’ll never crack, she’s as tough as an old boot.’ &quote;

Lord Richard looked him up and down. “After the overly familiar way you have been behaving with my daughter, especially since she donned that highly inappropriate costume this evening, I expect you to propose even if her dowry is an old shoe!” &quote;
