Princess #1 Stepsister Scheme - Jim C Hines Review

Author: Jim C Hines
ISBN: 9780756405328

Cinderella–whose real name is Danielle Whiteshore (nee Danielle de Glas)–does marry Prince Armand.  And if you can ignore the pigeon incident, their wedding is a dream come true.
But not long after the “happily ever after,” Danielle is attacked by her stepsister Charlotte, who suddenly has all sorts of magic to call upon.  And though Talia–otherwise known as Sleeping Beauty–comes to the rescue (she’s a martial arts master, and all those fairy blessings make her almost unbeatable), Charlotte gets away.
That’s when Danielle discovers a number of disturbing facts: Armand has been kidnapped and taken to the realm of the Fairies; Danielle is pregnant with his child; and the Queen has her own very secret service that consists of Talia and Snow (White, of course).  Snow is an expert at mirror magic and heavy duty flirting.
Can the three princesses track down Armand and extract both the prince and themselves from the clutches of some of fantasyland’s most nefarious villains?

I just finished this book and I really enjoyed it! The writing style is funny and straight to the point. Danielle is a great character and everyone will love Snow aka Snow White. All the characters are well written and they make you care for them.
Jim Hines gets back to the orignial fairytales in these books and its not all fluffy bunnies. I recommend these books to anyone who likes Terry Pratchett and Mercedes Lackey. Now for the next one Mermaids Madness..


  1. The Stepsister Scheme sounds amazing :D Going to have to see if I can get my hands on it!

  2. Yes it was very good, I am enjoying the 2nd book. Near the end of it now, and ready to start the third. I have put the ISBN in the review so you should be able to find it a bit easier.
