    This story was fantastic! Definitely one of my favorite reads of this year! It was packed full of political intrigue, but not so much where it went over my head or was hard to remember. The Cinderella twist honestly made it even cooler and will forever look at her story differently,...

    pooled ink Reviews: Kingdom of Ash and Soot is almost a Cinderella retelling but darker and more exciting. Set in an alternate 1800s Prague, Eleanora survives the deaths of her parents, strengthens beneath the abuse of her step-family, and rises in a world of magic and dark destin...

    A great story with intriguing politics, fun character dynamics, and a breathless conclusion! ...

    I was given an ARC of this book and this is my honest review. If you have never read anything by C.S. Johnson, then this is a wonderful way to begin a wonderful relationship with a terrific author. From the moment Nora is introduced along with her brother Ben, I was hooked. Both char...

    This book was given to me as an ARC and i would love to thank C.S.Johnson and Prodigy Gold Books for this opportunity. (view spoiler)[ The book starts off with Nora and Ben at her father's funeral rendering them orphans as their mother had passed away four years earlier.Growing u...

    Received this book as an ARC. A must read......wow...what can I say. A great read that will get you hooked right from the start. This first book in the Kingdom series is excellent. I love the character and the interaction they have with each other, and how they develop. There are...

    I read this book as a favor to a friend, not expecting what I opened was going to be that good. For a work of historical fiction and with a good amount of romance and intrigue, I quickly became occupied in the web of events portrayed therein. It is now 2am the day after I began reading...

    I received a copy of this book to read and am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read it! This book held me to the very end (I love stories like that so much!) I love how it brings in the dysfunction into the plot (a bit of reality mixed to make it more real to me. I enjoye...

    This is my first-ever eARC and that is why this book will forever be etched on my memory. Thank you Prodigy Gold Books for providing me an advance copy of this book. Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a tale of survival, mystery, lies, love, secrets and freedom. I was once again plunged int...

    Kingdom of Ash & Soot is set in the past, 1870 in Prague. Eleanora is only 9 years old when the story begins and she is at her father?s funeral with her older brother, Benedict, her stepmom and her two step siblings who are spoiled and used to getting their way. Eleanora was very...

    4.5/5 stars This is a novel that packs mystery and intrigue into historical fiction? what fun. It?s 1870 and Prague is a hotbed if political machinations, assainations and secret societies. There were many aspects of the story that I enjoyed. The orphan story: Eleanora and he...

    Kingdom of Ash and Soot is beautifully written, offering alluring and intense character-driven scenes that make you feel like you are standing next to Eleanora the entire time. The historical parts of the novel are compelling and so intricately woven into the plot. The twists and turns...

    Right. I think I'm gonna put this at something like 3.5 stars. Kingdom of Ash and Soot starts off with a very Cinderella vibe. After the death of her father, Eleanora and her brother Benedict are treated as servants by their (evil) step-mother. The plot does veer away after that, bu...

    Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a cute, well-written story of intrigue and romance. I found the characters to be well-rounded and unique. I enjoyed their interactions, and look forward to more in the next book. The plot was fun, and moved along relatively rapidly. I did guess the endi...

    This was a really interesting mix of themes. At first, I thought it would mainly play out to be a Cinderella story, but Nora/Ella isn't rescued from her stepmother just to leave a glass slipper on the prince's stairs. No, she's inherited a place in the Order of the Crystal Daggers, alo...

    Eleanora and her brother Benedict are the children of wealthy parents in Prague. When both parents pass away, their lives become that of servants under their step mother?s gruesome rule. But when their stately grandmother arrives at the estate, their lives are changed completely. ...

    This is an intriguing story based on Cinderella with a spy twist.  Intrigued yet?  The story was a slow burn to the heart stopping action at the end of the book.    Their a lot of mystery and intrigue and secrets which all add up to the pieces you need for a spy novel right.   I ...

    I received a copy of this book to read and am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read it! This book held me to the very end (I love stories like that so much!) I love how it brings in the dysfunction into the plot (a bit of reality mixed to make it more real to me. I enjoye...

    This is my first-ever eARC and that is why this book will forever be etched on my memory. Thank you Prodigy Gold Books for providing me an advance copy of this book. Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a tale of survival, mystery, lies, love, secrets and freedom. I was once again plunged int...

    Kingdom of Ash & Soot is set in the past, 1870 in Prague. Eleanora is only 9 years old when the story begins and she is at her father?s funeral with her older brother, Benedict, her stepmom and her two step siblings who are spoiled and used to getting their way. Eleanora was very...

    4.5/5 stars This is a novel that packs mystery and intrigue into historical fiction? what fun. It?s 1870 and Prague is a hotbed if political machinations, assainations and secret societies. There were many aspects of the story that I enjoyed. The orphan story: Eleanora and he...

    Kingdom of Ash and Soot is beautifully written, offering alluring and intense character-driven scenes that make you feel like you are standing next to Eleanora the entire time. The historical parts of the novel are compelling and so intricately woven into the plot. The twists and turns...

    Right. I think I'm gonna put this at something like 3.5 stars. Kingdom of Ash and Soot starts off with a very Cinderella vibe. After the death of her father, Eleanora and her brother Benedict are treated as servants by their (evil) step-mother. The plot does veer away after that, bu...

    Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a cute, well-written story of intrigue and romance. I found the characters to be well-rounded and unique. I enjoyed their interactions, and look forward to more in the next book. The plot was fun, and moved along relatively rapidly. I did guess the endi...

    This was a really interesting mix of themes. At first, I thought it would mainly play out to be a Cinderella story, but Nora/Ella isn't rescued from her stepmother just to leave a glass slipper on the prince's stairs. No, she's inherited a place in the Order of the Crystal Daggers, alo...

    Eleanora and her brother Benedict are the children of wealthy parents in Prague. When both parents pass away, their lives become that of servants under their step mother?s gruesome rule. But when their stately grandmother arrives at the estate, their lives are changed completely. ...

    Received this book as an ARC. A must read......wow...what can I say. A great read that will get you hooked right from the start. This first book in the Kingdom series is excellent. I love the character and the interaction they have with each other, and how they develop. There are...

    I read this book as a favor to a friend, not expecting what I opened was going to be that good. For a work of historical fiction and with a good amount of romance and intrigue, I quickly became occupied in the web of events portrayed therein. It is now 2am the day after I began reading...

    I received a copy of this book to read and am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read it! This book held me to the very end (I love stories like that so much!) I love how it brings in the dysfunction into the plot (a bit of reality mixed to make it more real to me. I enjoye...

    This is my first-ever eARC and that is why this book will forever be etched on my memory. Thank you Prodigy Gold Books for providing me an advance copy of this book. Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a tale of survival, mystery, lies, love, secrets and freedom. I was once again plunged int...

    Kingdom of Ash & Soot is set in the past, 1870 in Prague. Eleanora is only 9 years old when the story begins and she is at her father?s funeral with her older brother, Benedict, her stepmom and her two step siblings who are spoiled and used to getting their way. Eleanora was very...

    4.5/5 stars This is a novel that packs mystery and intrigue into historical fiction? what fun. It?s 1870 and Prague is a hotbed if political machinations, assainations and secret societies. There were many aspects of the story that I enjoyed. The orphan story: Eleanora and he...

    Kingdom of Ash and Soot is beautifully written, offering alluring and intense character-driven scenes that make you feel like you are standing next to Eleanora the entire time. The historical parts of the novel are compelling and so intricately woven into the plot. The twists and turns...

    Right. I think I'm gonna put this at something like 3.5 stars. Kingdom of Ash and Soot starts off with a very Cinderella vibe. After the death of her father, Eleanora and her brother Benedict are treated as servants by their (evil) step-mother. The plot does veer away after that, bu...

    Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a cute, well-written story of intrigue and romance. I found the characters to be well-rounded and unique. I enjoyed their interactions, and look forward to more in the next book. The plot was fun, and moved along relatively rapidly. I did guess the endi...

    This was a really interesting mix of themes. At first, I thought it would mainly play out to be a Cinderella story, but Nora/Ella isn't rescued from her stepmother just to leave a glass slipper on the prince's stairs. No, she's inherited a place in the Order of the Crystal Daggers, alo...

    Eleanora and her brother Benedict are the children of wealthy parents in Prague. When both parents pass away, their lives become that of servants under their step mother?s gruesome rule. But when their stately grandmother arrives at the estate, their lives are changed completely. ...

    This is an intriguing story based on Cinderella with a spy twist.  Intrigued yet?  The story was a slow burn to the heart stopping action at the end of the book.    Their a lot of mystery and intrigue and secrets which all add up to the pieces you need for a spy novel right.   I ...

    This book was nothing like I expected! I literally just finished it and I am so shocked and sad and happy all at once! I was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading it. I just knew something fishy was going on and I was half right... I feel like this Cinderella meets ...

    This book was given to me as an ARC and i would love to thank C.S.Johnson and Prodigy Gold Books for this opportunity. (view spoiler)[ The book starts off with Nora and Ben at her father's funeral rendering them orphans as their mother had passed away four years earlier.Growing u...

    ?I want to be free.? The words came rushing out of me before I could think through their implications and consequences. Nora was a very easy character to fall in love with. It stays true to the typical Cinderella retelling, however Nora is a beast! She became stronger with her l...

    Received this book as an ARC. A must read......wow...what can I say. A great read that will get you hooked right from the start. This first book in the Kingdom series is excellent. I love the character and the interaction they have with each other, and how they develop. There are...

    I read this book as a favor to a friend, not expecting what I opened was going to be that good. For a work of historical fiction and with a good amount of romance and intrigue, I quickly became occupied in the web of events portrayed therein. It is now 2am the day after I began reading...

    I received a copy of this book to read and am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read it! This book held me to the very end (I love stories like that so much!) I love how it brings in the dysfunction into the plot (a bit of reality mixed to make it more real to me. I enjoye...

    This is my first-ever eARC and that is why this book will forever be etched on my memory. Thank you Prodigy Gold Books for providing me an advance copy of this book. Kingdom of Ash and Soot is a tale of survival, mystery, lies, love, secrets and freedom. I was once again plunged int...

    Hi again, everyone! This is my upcoming novel, published through Prodigy Gold Books, and it's my editor's favorite so far, and I can think of no higher praise considering she's seen the worst of my work. I hope you enjoy it! Here's the blurb I've written: ?I want to be free...

    Thank you so much to C.S. Johnson and Prodigy Gold Books for the ARC of the book! A wonderful spin on the classic Cinderella story, I truly enjoyed Kingdom of Ash and Soot. The book to me was a little slow at first but is to be expected with all of the world building that needed to ...

    you can find this review on my blog as well! --- I?d be lying if I said the cover wasn?t my main reason for wanting to pick up this book. But after reading the synopsis, I got some interesting Cinderella vibes, and, well. I was sold. Kingdom is not a retelling. It has some...

    This story was fantastic! Definitely one of my favorite reads of this year! It was packed full of political intrigue, but not so much where it went over my head or was hard to remember. The Cinderella twist honestly made it even cooler and will forever look at her story differently,...

    Woah! That?s ending totally took me by surprise. I WANT THE NEXT BOOK PLEASE! ...

    pooled ink Reviews: Kingdom of Ash and Soot is almost a Cinderella retelling but darker and more exciting. Set in an alternate 1800s Prague, Eleanora survives the deaths of her parents, strengthens beneath the abuse of her step-family, and rises in a world of magic and dark destin...

    Kingdom of Ash & Soot is set in the past, 1870 in Prague. Eleanora is only 9 years old when the story begins and she is at her father?s funeral with her older brother, Benedict, her stepmom and her two step siblings who are spoiled and used to getting their way. Eleanora was very...

    4.5/5 stars This is a novel that packs mystery and intrigue into historical fiction? what fun. It?s 1870 and Prague is a hotbed if political machinations, assainations and secret societies. There were many aspects of the story that I enjoyed. The orphan story: Eleanora and he...
