A Curse Of Ash And Iron


A Curse of Ash and Iron - Christine Norris

Based on the cover I assumed it would be a steampunk novel, however, I didn’t realise that it was a Cinderella retelling until I was halfway the book.


Benjamin Grimm reunites with his childhood friend Eleanor and find out she’s been living under a spell for years, forcing her to live like a servant in her own house.


I didn’t like the book, it wasn’t for me. I didn’t think it was steampunk, so maybe I was just disappointed and didn’t like it for that reason. Also, I thought the story was very slow and even as far as retellings go not very original. The main characters acted very stupid at times and the love triangle (did I mention I hate those) felt extremely forced.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
