[ E-PUB ] ♫ Lucky Charm (A Cinderella Reverse Fairytale Book 2) ♿ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

My second read from author J.A Armitage I have to be honest, I don t care much for re written fairy tales and when I picked up Charm I thought Another retread fairy tale I was wrong This is a different take on the Cinderella theme and was so well written I found I couldn t put it down Captivating characters set in modern time with social issues, terrorism a surprise twist ending and this, the second book in the trilogy, the story continues seamlessly from Charm I ll have to read from J.A Armitage, including Charmed, the conclusion of the trilogy. This is the second book in this collection and i was thinking it would be the last but i was wrong, it seems that this is a trilogy The pace of this book is way faster that the first one and there are always happening something but at the same time there are times when i though why do they do this why can t it be over with and are expanding this situation I was not expecting to see another selection and i think this was the downside for me in this book, i do not think it was creative enough As for the final, i was expecting it and at the same time i was not, let me explain i was expecting something to happen but not the exact thing that happens Almost until the end i was not sure myself who i want Charm to end up with, and now i really want to see what will happen I gave 3.1 out of 5 to this one, it was a fast read and one that i enjoy but i have so mixed feelings about it, i just hope that the next one is better and creative because i know that this series has so much potential. Princess Charmaine is getting married to Luka, but the kingdom has been in turmoil since the death of her father the king It is up to her to put her kingdom back together in between planning her wedding and dealing with the press She almost forgets about the Magi who were looking for her protection, but she still manages to try in the name of Cynder She thinks that she will never see him again as he is on the run from the police, but Cynder knows some things that mean his Charm is in danger Now, he knows he must go back to save her.This, this was finally a love triangle done right Charm knows that she cannot abandon her kingdom to chase after Cynder when she doesn t even know where he is So, even though she loves him, she continues her duties and goes onto marry Luka She had to also take charge and protect the Magi on the side and try to stop her kingdom from tearing itself apart Therefore, even though there was a triangle, it wasn t pointless, and we knew who Charm would choose if she truly had the choice Also, Cynder wasn t there the entire time, so she thought that she was just going to have to suck it up with Luka and produce an heir for the kingdom Also, I was truly able to see Charm grow within this novel With the loss of her father, she knows that she will have to take over the kingdom, and so she really starts to step up to the plate as the leader I have to say that this book was most likely my favorite in the entire trilogy simply because I get to see her really step up to the plate as a queen She also handles the media and the stress of planning a wedding without completely forgetting about her family This was one of the few YA novels that I read where the family ties were emphasized and viewed as being important.Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a YA fantasy novel with a GOOD love triangle and incredible worldbuilding I received this book for free and this is my voluntary review. So much pretense So high risk of betrayal And yet she must do her best to lead the kingdom After her father s death, Charm is now the Queen of Silverwood, but her task is not an easy one After the rule of terror, hate, and fear, the Magi are hiding abroad and not willing to return despite the changed laws of acceptance and equality The former king s rule is simply ingrained too much, and the non Magi citizens are afraid of magic Moreover, wedding preparations are now full in the running When Luca invites Charm for a journey to Thalia, she is glad for the distraction only to meet Cynder again and spiral headfirst back into the mess her life used to be When a contest is opened, the situation changes dramatically, and the longer it continues, the suspicions arise around Something is going to happen, but no one knows the culprit The second book in this series is a great continuation to the reversed twisted Cinderella story Unexpected turns drive the plot forward, developing the story with amazing speed The rapidly changing world is intriguing, full of political machinations and ingenious strategies However, what I enjoyed most was the development of the characters With each challenge and each hard decision, they were forced to think, mature, and consider the options to decide what s best not everytime for the citizens but for themselves Hidden motives, silent plotting, and greed for power intensified over the course, and enough hints were dropped along to recognize the man standing in the background and pulling the strings, although Charm was oblivious to the facts Surprising moments aided with action and battles not fought on the battlefield were balanced with emotional scenes, and I enjoyed the book very much to await the next book impatiently.

I m really enjoying this story but I m having problems reconciling a few things.First is the seeming merging of past and present Everyone talks and dresses as in modern times There are telephones very few and televisions And there are carriages and horses but no kind of automated transportation, although there was one mention of a train but it was just that mentioned in passing There are mages or magi, people who can perform actual magic, but only if they have a wand The magic population are treated as second class citizens in this one kingdom, but in other kingdoms they re accepted as equals So the question becomes, why are they staying in this one kingdom where they re persecuted and treated so unfairly I guessed the ending very early in the book which is annoying Moving on to book 3 of this trilogy. Lucky Charm is the second book in J.A Armitage s Reverse Fairytale series It is the continuation of Princess Chamaine s accent to become queen of Silverwood The story begins with her coronation and seamlessly continues with the upcoming Royal wedding to Luka, the prince Charm chose in book one But is all as it seems Will Charm ever see Cynder, the magi boy who stole her heart, again And why is someone trying to kill the monarchy And who Yikes, the action, the romance, the beautifully created world I loved it all I had a had time putting it down I cannot wait to read the next book in this skillfully crafted series I received a copy of this book from the author I voluntarily reviewed this book and this is my honest review. Breathtaking definitely NOT a bridge This shattered the stereotypical 2nd book bridge I had my suspicions and my angst was raised soo many times I thought of strangling the author for whipping me around like a wet dog Just FABulous I was able to continue adoring Leo Daniel Cynder Luca had me wanting to pull my hair out Tsk Editing was pretty good Wow, the world building descriptions were wonderful The ending, oh the ending What can I say I m starting the next book as soon as I submit this You ll regret not having it in hand My star ratings include these 5 elements 1 story line1 engaging characters1 use of world building descriptive1 being well edited or narrated 1 the ending A magical twisted Cinderella retelling Lucky Charm is the magical romantic second part to this entertaining trilogy based loosely on Cinderella The book has plenty of twists and turns to keep the readers on their feet I had a hard time setting this book down and became emotionally involved in the characters As a result I found Charm a bit frustrating in her indecision about her love life and was disappointed and disbelieving in the conclusion of the book, but hopefully the payoff in the final book will make up for it.
