The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . SLIPPERS AND THIEVES (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum, #4) . . . There's nothing like knowing that if you fall in love and have the first real kiss that the world you know of will start to crumble. No pressure. There was nothing ordinary about this retelling. There was nothing about this story that said it was once a bed time story. There was so much here to enjoy, laugh at, and almost want to enroll in high school again. At least this particular high school. This was more than I was expecting but on point for having me wanting more of the world of the Magicorum.
The cat made me feel like we may be getting a little Alice in Wonderland retelling somewhere down the line. I am all on board no matter what direction that Christina choose to go. I love reading her worlds of fictional fantasy and paranormal reality. They are easy to read and relate to. The characters are great and the world building phenomenal.
Years ago, Elle—never call her Cinderella—escaped her evil step family in order to build a new life for herself in Manhattan. Today, Elle’s awful past is a distant memory. In fact, Elle even attends West Lake Prep, an exclusive high school where regular humans mix with members of the Magicorum, such as fairies, shifters and witches. Although she still must live in hiding from her evil stepfamily, Elle has always found ways to get whatever her heart desires.
That is, until Alec Le Charme.
Alec is the heir to the Le Charme dynasty of high-end jewelers. He’s also kind, charismatic, has a knee-melting smile. Elle has fallen for him, hard.
Unfortunately, thanks to Elle’s evil step family, Alec is absolutely off limits. In fact, if Elle and Alec so much as kiss, it will start a magical chain reaction that would end in powerful factions of witches and wizards going to war. As a result, Elle and Alec vow to stay friends, no matter what. Then West Lake Prep holds a masquerade ball. Identities get mixed up and forbidden kisses are finally shared.
Time for the Magicorum to go to war, and for Elle to confront her hidden past in ways she never thought possible.
Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
