In this fast-paced story full of adventure and romance, Cinderella is more than just a servant girl waiting for her prince—she's a tough, fearless girl who is capable of taking charge of a dangerous situation. Seeking to escape the clutches of her evil stepmother, Cinderella perfects her ninja skills and magic talents in secret, waiting for the day when she can break free and live happily ever after. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Cinderella and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!
Review: I've always been a huge fan of fairy tales with Cinderella being one of my top three favorites. So of course I jumped at the chance to review Cinderella Ninja Warrior. Maureen McGowan did an excellent job of taking a classic and adding major twists that actually made the world in which Cinderella lives in much more entertaining.
The main idea was still there - Cinderella living with her evil stepmother and stepsisters and a ball where the prince will pick his bride. Now add in wizardry, enchantment spells, a prince who is wandering around "undercover" and Cinderella who has acquired some bad ass ninja skills...you have Cinderella Ninja Warrior.
You are able to choose your own adventure while reading the book. It is divided into sections where you can choose what will happen next. In total there are eight different routes the story can take. I finished Cinderella Ninja Warrior in a day. I honestly couldn't put it down and I recommend it to anyone who has loved the tale of Cinderella.
