A Modern Fairy Tale 1-3: Cindi/Ella
A girl, a prince, and an evil pair of shoes.
Cindi Ella Lass didn’t have a career in Paris, Texas, in mind when she graduated with a degree in fashion, but her grandmother’s offer of a place to live (free rent!) entices her to the small town. When she arrives, she notices the most beautiful pair of crystal shoes in the shop next door… and she can’t get them out of her head.
Principe knows the crystal shoes have killed before, but he’s heart-broken when the shoes choose the lovely Cindi Ella as their next victim. With the help of Ainsworth, the talking mouse, Principe fashions a plan to defy his evil Uncle and keep Cindi from being the next victim.
Will Principe and Cindi Ella each find their happily ever after? Find out what happens when the shoes become the villain.
Read Cindi/Ella: When Shoes Speak for a new take on the traditional fairy tale.

The Source of all magic has been kidnapped.
When Cindi Ella’s fairy grandmother falls ill, Cindi Ella learns the Source—a legendary mermaid and the origin of all magic—has been taken prisoner by an evil Cleric in another realm.
Cindi and Principe, Cindi’s fiancé, must travel to a different world to rescue the water-bound being… or Mémère will perish.
Using an enchanted looking glass, the duo steps through a water fountain portal and leaves the modern domain behind.
When they arrive in the KeeTow province, they meet Crimson, Indigo, and Daffodil, three primary magic wielders already determined to save the trapped mermaid.
The group bands together, avoiding capture by the soldiers of the green hand, battling a Sea Witch, and embarking on the “stupidest plan ever” to rescue the Source and save magic for all.

Because I came to rather like Ainsworth, the talking mouse, and I was drawn in more as the story darkened, becoming more twisted, but not in a way that was too dark for me.
Some typos had me rereading sentences to catch their meaning, but it wasn't a big or frequent deal. And the story's climax? Fantastic!
Full of Hope
