The Moonlight Masquerade

(City of Wishes #3)

Elle is desperate enough to do the one thing she promised herself she’d never do: bargain with the Godmother for a wish. But if she pays the price, it will leave her forever changed.

So she makes the daring decision to lie to the Godmother.

She’ll pretend to pay the price.

Can she get away with her freedom before the Godmother finds out?

CITY OF WISHES is an urban fantasy serialized retelling of Cinderella. This is episode 3.

~ ~ ~

In a world of fae, vampires and shifters, where wishes can be bought and bargained for, Elle is human, bound to her stepmother by a slave charm. Her only hope at freedom is to wish for it. But the Godmotherrules the illegal wish trade, and the price she demands is steep. Is Elle willing to pay it?

I’m torn on this review…I love this series, and enjoyed reading this one, but I actually guessed many of the twists in this one were coming after reading Ep. 2, and the ending on this one was…a little weird, although I enjoyed the very end, and can’t wait to read more! As mentioned, these books are too short, and $3 is a lot for a half-hour read when many other books closer to normal length are the same price. I’d love to see this series combined in a boxset when finished, since readers who enjoy the series aren’t going to want to stop after every book!

I loved seeing Dex and Elle in this one, and enjoyed the mystery, though as mentioned, I expected most of the twists this time, it led to more questions, and some interesting suggestions that I’m hoping will be mentioned next time.
