Beautiful take on the Cinderella story. I didn't really understand why things worked out with Sidhean the way they did, but I may have missed something. ( )

This was a pretty good read. I felt the GLBT twist was kind of tacked on to make the book seem "edgier" for teen readers. That being said, the author's writing style is very polished and descriptive. I love how she interlaced her own original fairy tales into the narrative. I think she could have gone into a bit more depth about the fairy world itself, though. And Ash didn't feel like she went on enough of a journey to me. I felt I was supposed to see her growing stronger and more self-sufficient throughout the book but I just didn't. She seemed pretty much an emotional wreck through the whole thing. This isn't the greatest retelling of "Cinderella" ever, but it's an interesting contribution. ( )

Aisling is distraught at the death of her mother, but nothing has prepared her for her life after her father’s remarriage and subsequent death. Torn from the only home she has known in a small village, to serving her step family to “repay” her father’s debts is quite a shock. Her only “friend” is a fairy prince, who is as frightening as he is intriguing. Ash only sees him when she walks in the woods, and then only when he decides to show himself to her.

Ms. Lo’s take on the Cinderella fairy tale replaces the fairy godmother with a fairy prince who demands a price for the wishes he grants. Complicating that potential romance is the growing friendship and attraction between Ash and Kaisa, the King’s Huntress. Sacrifices must be made but who will make them is up in the air.

Cinderella is my favorite fairy tale; I had the Disney sound track on a record as a child and can still sing those songs. I had to have the movie when it was released on VHS even though I was in college at the time. So, I read a lot of retellings of this tale. Ash blends the traditional story with a love triangle, and weaves in its own “old tales” of fairy. I wasn’t familiar with the tales Aisling/Ash told, but then, I haven’t read everything. I am working on it, though! I’ll be reading The Huntress next; it is a companion to this book.

Malinda Lo’s somber and lovely “Ash” is a lesbian retelling of “Cinderella”... It features a beautiful orphan — Ash, short for Aisling, and a perfect play on the name “Cinderella” — a ­cruel, social-climbing stepmother and two sneering stepsisters. Lo gives us a vaguely medieval setting, royal hunts, grand balls and an unquestioned class hierarchy. Not until the introduction of Kaisa, the king’s gorgeous young huntress, do we get a spin on tradition.
