You think you know the story of Cinderella....

The kingdom needs an heir and Princess Charmaine is quite aware that the job rests solely upon her shoulders. When her elder sister dies, Charmaine has to take her place at the ball designed to find her a husband. With a hundred men to choose between and her wedding planned, all she has to do is pick one. 

Cynder knows about the impending war between the people of magic and those of his masters, but working as an underpaid servant in the palace kitchens leaves him with little power to do anything about it. On one hand, he’s a staunch supporter of equal rights for his own kind, but he can’t deny the attraction he feels for the daughter of the king and queen he works for.

When the two meet, sparks fly and not just the magical kind…

Charm is the first in the Reverse Fairytale series by USA Today bestselling author J.A.Armitage. Take everything you think you know about fairytales and turn it on its head.

This was an excellent beginning to what may well be a dynamite series. There is an homage to reality TV in that Charm is going to pick a husband on a show that resembles The Bachelor There is passion, intrigue, prejudice, and sorrow in the book--all very well portrayed. I am looking forward to reading the next book.


Exciting, original, romantic... one of the best fairtytale retellings I've ever read.
Armitage works her magic yet again in this amazing series. We follow the story of Princess Charmaine as she steps into a role she never wanted to play. The characters are well written and the story kept me reading through the night. I can't wait to finish this series.
