{Interview+Giveaway} CINDERELLA’S INFERNO by F.M. Boughan @FaithBoughan @Month9Books

Today I have author F.M. Boughan here to chat about her newest book, Cinderella’s Inferno. Welcome Faith! Describe Cinderella’s Inferno in a tweet (140 characters or less) Ellison vows to save her mother’s soul from damnation in this loose retelling of Dante’s Inferno, a sequel to CINDERELLA, NECROMANCER. What is something we would be surprised to learn about Ellison? Besides what you’ll learn in the book? Hmm… oh!

And it lived up to that blurb. I was hooked into this story right from the very first page. Ella is everything I love in a heroine. She is witty and complex. She is someone that will intrigue you and will have you on her side. I felt like I was her sidekick on this journey, which is something I love. It means that the story pulled me in completely. I loved Mrs. Boughan’s writing. It was dark and atmospheric and felt like a completely new cinderella tale to me. I am calling this one more of a re-imagining, rather than a re-telling for that reason. I think what I loved most of all was the magic in this story. In the original Cinderella,… Read more »
