Wishes are Dangerous

They can bring you a night out, a gown, even a pair of slippers. Or something you never should have wished for in the first place.

After the royal wedding, the girl in the glass slippers has everything she ever wanted: an escape from a life of drudgery, an innate magical gift, and a devoted husband who looks at her like she is the only one in the room. But all wishes come with a price. To the people of the palace, she is an outsider, nothing more. Even her famous shoes cannot help her—the glass slippers no longer fit.

Glass and Feathers is a continuation of the traditional Cinderella tale. It transforms "Happy Ever After" and soars beyond it.

The Enchanted Press


In Glass and Feathers, Sloan deftly examines the nature of “happily ever after,” crafting a world in which impulsive wishes wound as deeply as the shards of ill-fitting glass slippers—yet a world that also celebrates the power of fairy tales to heal. A compassionate and worthy successor to traditional Cinderella stories.
