The Stepsister Scheme (PRINCESS NOVELS) - Jim C. Hines I enjoyed this one very much. Kick-ass princesses, and nothing is really "Happily Ever After." Danielle's (Cinderella's) stepsisters have abducted the prince, so Danielle gets pulled into her mother-in-law's circle of crusading princesses - Talia, the harsh and still angry at all fairies Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White, who had to escape her homeland when she killed her mother. There's magic swords, fairy bargains, and Danielle begins to learn that being famous enough to have your own legend doesn't mean your life is necessarily sunshine and roses. I also loved the details of how difficult Danielle found the adjustment to palace life - even though she was a princess now, everything around her reminds her of her former life - stains on clothes, dust in corners, etc. I did like how each Princess used her strengths, and enjoyed Danielle finding hers.Will be continuing on in this series.
