Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite The Wronged Princess – Book 1 was written by Kae Elle Wheeler as a grown-up Cinderella fairy tale.  The story follows the one we have been told as children but adds some adult twists and turns.  Cinderella still gets to go to the ball, thanks to her fairy godmother and she still loses a shoe at midnight, but then the once upon a time plot changes quickly.  We, the readers, share the real thoughts of Cinderella, her step-mother and step-sisters, the prince, and his scheming mother.  Fairy Godmother plays an interesting role and I was pleasantly surprised by her several times throughout the story.  Prince Charming searches the village for the girl of his dreams but the result isn’t what he hoped for or expected.  When Cinderella and her step-family spend a week at the castle there are many surprises in store for each of them, some good, some funny, and some bad.   I do not think anyone will be disappointed when reading The Wronged Princess if they believe make-believe can meet true life.  Kae Elle Wheeler has done a great job in joining together the two elements of reality and fantasy. I found myself sometimes liking the characters and sometimes being really annoyed with them, but always happy with the outcomes.  Cinderella was always one of my favorite stories as a little girl and after reading The Wronged Princess, I feel as though the story is now complete in a whole new way.  This is a light, refreshing, fun book and well worth the read.  I am anxiously awaiting Kae Elle Wheeler’s second book in this series.

I received this book as an ARC. At first I was a little put off by this book since I seemed to feel like I was reading the rodgers and hammerstine version of Cinderella. but this book quickly took if into its own and I must say I enjoyed it amd look forward to reading the next books in the series. I loved how she turned the sisters into true friends.

Drove me crazy, sentence structure was absent in every chapter and extra superfluous words, see? Its rubbing chafing off. Story was cute spin of Cinderella, would've been nice to know how Lady Roche survived being poisoned.

Definitely not a cliffhanger! In fact I found the story too cute. I found this re-make of a fairytale dragging, and dull. I stopped reading the story a couple times but I am glad that I pushed through to the THREE epilogues! I wouldn't read this tale again... but you may like it! Afterall, it is not a cliffhanger!

Perhaps the author should stick to karaoke because she can't write her way out of a paper bag...perhaps she carries a tune in a paper bag better. The name were even so pathetic I regret reading the story of Cinderella and Prince "Charming" of all things...come on! The premise of the story was so ridiculous it was frustrating to read and then the errors...did anyone proofread this book? And not only that but people that read this garbage give it such high scores. Waste of time even if free...

This book has a wonderful premise with great potential, but really would have benefitted from some editing. The sometimes (ok, the quite often) awkward wording and incorrect use of vocabulary was particularly distracting. The character development needed a little polishing up as well. Many things were unexplained, leaving the reader questioning what happened or why someone behaved the way they did. Overall very disappointing, but hey, it was free.

The story is interesting, but a little too syrupy cute. The author would benefit greatly from an editor. So many errors that it's distracting. Extra words in places, sentence structure that... well frankly *isn't* structure at all. Words that were used that don't mean quite what the author intended. Please take away her thesaurus! There is potential here to be a good story, but it needs some finesse.

Cute story. Mostly followed the classic story but with a few changes that made it interesting. I wasn't a huge fan of the prince, but I liked the other characters.

What a twist on the fairy tale, Cinderella. I would love to know what happened to her Stepmaman. I couldn't wait to finish reading it. It's an easy, enjoyable read.

The story reels you in and the twists in the plot keeps you wondering even though the reader knows how it will end. I am the type that likes to know how the happily ever after happens, but it was a cute book. I gave it 4 stars because if you are the type of reader that is irritated by spelling or sentence errors, this book may make you a little crazy. I just read and try to interpret what the author is trying to convey and enjoy the ride so it doesn't bother me much.

This story is an adaptation of the Cinderella story with a lot of twists and things shown in reverse. The description of the princess being a dark-haired brown-eyed beauty with olive skin (as shown on the gorgeous cover) is one example of how many things were reversed. The description on Amazon is this... Even when Cinderella loses her glass slipper, she feels quite smug when Prince Charming announces to his kingdom, he'll try the shoe on every maiden until he finds his mysterious princess. Unfortunately, it slides just as easily on her sister, Esmeralda's dainty foot... So yes, Cinderella was wronged. She had an interesting relationship with her step-sisters as well, which ended up entirely different from the one in the original fairy tale. Prince Charming had to continually remind himself that he was supposed to be charming so he could have a good attitude about the fact that the woman who tried on the shoe was not the one he remembered and yet, he agreed to marry her anyway. Funny thing was he couldn't seem to remember her name. He wasn't the most likable hero and Cinderella had her moments as well, when the fondness I typically have for characters simply wasn't there. The author created a unique twist on this story that fans of Cinderella stories may find charming. This tale comes with some alcohol consumption and a bit of magic, so it's not for the easily disturbed when it comes to inspirational themes. I didn't see a faith thread in this story, but it was "sweet" in the sense that nothing untoward happened, though there were mentions of ancient Gods and statues and such. So if you like a fairy tale with a twist, you may enjoy this story.

This book is very good. However I don't understand why they keep changing Esmeralda's name... she was referred to as Espelina, Eptelinda and Erstella all on the same page!
