The Shadow in the Glass416
This may look like another Cinderella retelling, but The Shadow in the Glass offers a bit of a mashup — part historical fiction, part gothic horror, part fantasy, wrapped up in a very twisted mystery. If you thought the Brothers Grimm version was dark, the Faustian spin woven through this tale will leave you gobsmacked. Atmospheric and slightly terrifying, this chilling take on a classic makes you rethink the whole “A dream is a wish your heart makes” fantasy.

Once upon a time Ella had wished for more than her life as a lowly maid.
Now forced to work hard under the unforgiving, lecherous gaze of the man she once called stepfather, Ella’s only refuge is in the books she reads by candlelight, secreted away in the library she isn’t permitted to enter.
One night, among her beloved books of far-off lands, Ella’s wishes are answered. At the stroke of midnight, a fairy godmother makes her an offer that will change her life: seven wishes, hers to make as she pleases. But each wish comes at a price and Ella must decide whether it’s one she’s willing to pay…
A smouldering, terrifying new spin on Cinderella – perfect for fans of Laura Purcell and Erin Morgenstern.
