What did I think
First off I want to say thinks to the author for letting me know her book was for free , and even though its book 3 in her series it can be read as a standalone, with that said here is what I thought of it, while it's called Dance: Cinderella retelling , it's doesn't come off like a Cinderella type story ,there is only a little aspect of the Cinderella story and that's where the mother dies and the stepmother and magic ,the rest of the story reminds me 100% of the Disney movie Mulan, which takes place doing the same time period, even though I was looking for more of a Cinderella retelling I ended up loving the story ,the characters , basely everything about the story, so if you never checked this series out you need to. Expressly you love the Disney movie Mulan
