When supernatural artifacts from the Homelands begin surfacing in the modern world, it falls to Cinderella, Fabletown's best kept (and best dressed) secret agent to stop the illegal trafficking. But can Cindy foil the dark plot before Fabletown and its hidden, exiled inhabitants are exposed once and for all? Whether she's soaring through clouds, deep-sea diving, or cracking jaws, Cindy travels from Manhattan to Dubai and hooks up with a handsome, familiar accomplice who may be harboring secret motives of his own. Meanwhile, trouble brews back home in Fabletown when Cindy's overworked, under appreciated assistant decides to seize control of The Glass Slipper, Cindy's exclusive shoe boutique.
A spin-off from the regular series, we get to know Cindy the spy just a bit better. I loved the spy novel/Bond movie feel to the entire series. Cindy is sarcastic, smart, funny, and down right dangerous. I love her. As much as I like Snow White in the regular series, Cindy is a whole new breed of Fable. And I love how her cover in Fabletown is an affair with Beast and the vapid owner of a shoe store. Nice cover Cindy! It makes her real personality so much more fun. I will definitely be adding the other Cinderella series, Fables are Forever, to my TBR list for next year.
