Disenchanted: The Trials of Cinderella

Book #2 in the Tyme Series

Ella Coach has one wish: revolution. Her mother died working in a sweatshop, and Ella wants every laborer in the Blue Kingdom to receive fairer treatment. But to make that happen, she’ll need some high-level support . . .

Prince Dash Charming has one wish: evolution. The Charming Curse forced generations of Charming men to lie, cheat, and break hearts–but with the witch Envearia’s death, the curse has ended. Now Dash wants to be a better person, but he doesn’t know where to start. . .

Serge can grant any wish–and has: As an executive fairy godfather, he’s catered to the wildest whims of spoiled teenagers from the richest, most entitled families in Blue. But now a new name has come up on his list, someone nobody’s ever heard of . . . Ella Coach.

This is “Cinderella” reimagined: a story about three people who want something better and who together find the faith to change their worlds.

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“…endearing and believable characters.”

“…liberal infusions of magic and humor.”

“Great, smart fun.”

School Library Journal

“Morrison has created another fast-moving and vibrant story filled with colorful descriptions of a magical place. Readers who enjoyed the first installment will relish the chance to learn more about Serge, the Blue Fairy, Prince Dash, and other characters from Tyme. New readers who like a fresh approach to traditional fairy tales will appreciate how the author blends themes of magic and modern-day economic justice.”

“Utterly delightful! The fairy-tale world was wonderfully entertaining, but in addition to all the fairy dust, this is an important book. It reminds us that we don’t have to rely on magic–we can work together, create idealistic yet realistic plans, and set up businesses that are living proof that doing good in the community can mean doing well. Wishes really can come true!”
