Genres: Clean & Wholesome, Fantasy & Magic, Fiction, Young Adult
Bestselling romance novelist J.M. Stengl steps into the realm of fairy tales with this sparkling new series of love, laughter, light, and—of course—magic.
Trained by an enchantress but obliged to work summers for her living, fifteen-year-old Ellie Calmer serves as a maid at a world-famous mountain resort. Her lowly rank keeps her always at a distance from the powerful, beautiful guests who spend their summers at Faraway Castle, yet Ellie dares to dream of one day exchanging even just a few words with shy Prince Omar of Khenifra.
But when rare magical creatures show up in Faraway Castle’s gardens, Ellie’s life is suddenly complicated. Cinder sprites are causing fires and potentially endangering the beautiful resort. The resort director has sent for an exterminator to deal with these so-called pests. Can Ellie find a way to use her humble magic to save the cinder sprites and Faraway Castle before disaster strikes?
CINDER ELLIE is a prequel novella to J.M. Stengl’s FARAWAY CASTLE series. Recommended for fans of Marissa Meyer, Melanie Dickerson, K.M. Shea, and Chanda Hahn.
I really enjoyed this story…the Characters are fun and I’m excited to get to know all the magical creatures!
but I gotta say it was to short and left to many questions..it ended almost like a cliff hanger with so many questions brought up throughout it I want answered. So I know thats what it was supposed to do and it’ll definitely hook ya, but I don’t want to wait for more lol.
Can’t wait for the rest of Ellie’s story!!
