Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott is on sale in ebook format for $2.99, the first time this book has dropped to a bargain price. I didn't own it yet, and now I do! This is a Cinderella retelling that is quite unusual with a revenge theme to it. And it is set in Japan. So this is far from your expected Cinderella story.
Marriott previously drew inspiration from the Six Swans tale in The Swan Kingdom, which has never been released in ebook format.
A powerful tale of magic, love, and revenge set in fairy-tale Japan. Trained in the magical art of shadow-weaving, sixteen-year-old Suzume is able to re-create herself in any form - a fabulous gift for a girl desperate to escape her past. But who is she really? Is she a girl of noble birth living under the tyranny of her mother's new husband, Lord Terayama? Or a lowly drudge scraping a living in the ashes of Terayama's kitchens? Or is she Yue, the most beautiful courtesan in the Moonlit Lands? Whatever her true identity, Suzume is destined to use her skills to steal the heart of a prince in a revenge plot to destroy Terayama. And nothing will stop her, not even the one true aspect of her life- her love for a fellow shadow-weaver.
