Forget everything you think you know about Cinderella. Pretty Deadly is a retelling of the classic fairytale but without the singing mice and sewing birds. This version of “Cinders”, our heroine Cinna, leaves behind her not just a glass slipper but the wake of destruction. She wants to watch the world burn. Throne of Glass meets Ocean’s 8 in Kelsey Josund’s gritty heist tale that isn’t afraid to get its hands dirty. This story has a flair for the brutal and the macabre, and the unexpected, with an admirable bloodstained elegance about it. Cinna is a beautifully complex character with a bite quite as bad as her bark. Kelsey Josund is a fantastic writer, I devoured it in just a few days.
