Blurb: When joined together, Cinderella's slippers grant the wearer her heart's desire. But whose wish will be granted?
When Cinderella’s glass slipper is stolen, Queen Felicia sends her faithful steward Terrance to the real world to retrieve his love and witch-in-training, Bianca Frost. The power of the glass slipper, when paired with its mate, and in the wrong hands, could ruin the peace of Everafter. Bianca must gather every bit of magic she has learned in the past few weeks to find the slipper and protect her new love. Together, Bianca, Ming, Prince Ferdinand, and Terrance venture deep into the heart of Everafter to seek clues as to who has stolen the slipper and why. Along the way, they uncover what happened to the Seven Dwarves after Snow White married the prince, but also learn the awful risk of tampering with black magic and the high price that must be paid for magic, even when used for good.
Bianca and Terrance’s relationship is put to the test. Through the pain of suffering and loss, Bianca must determine if following her gallant boyfriend into his faraway world is in fact her heart's desire.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!
**Received the ebook as part GHB tour for an honest review.
Okay, I definitely like this cover better than book #1, and it definitely makes you think Snow White.
I enjoyed this story and all the adventure, but it was still something I could put down at night to sleep even though I think I like this book more than book #1. I really love the creativity it takes to make a whole new story from old fairy tales and that this is a good series.
I love Bianca because she is courageous and adventurous, but she is also very kind and caring. Bianca is like a magnet for trouble which makes for an exciting read. Along with Bianca, you still have all your other favorites Rose, Ming, David, Terrance, and Prince Ferdinand. There are some new villains, and you meet the families in Everafter.
Again, I hope this book comes out in paperback because I want to add it to my classroom library. I think the kids are really into fairy tale twists.
If you enjoyed the first book, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this adventure. I can’t wait to see what Liz cooks up next for everyone.
