My thoughts: Dragon by Midnight is a fun, fast-paced, romantic Cinderella retelling with elements of Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin thrown in. This story sends us straight into the thick of the action by beginning during the ball at midnight.
When the clock strikes midnight, Cinderella suddenly transforms into a dragon and the Prince and a sorcerer named Sikandar are tasked with hunting her down. Only Sikandar can save her from the curse and turn her back into a girl.
My favourite character definitely has to be Sikandar! His evil sorcerer act was exactly that, an act. He is the sweetest boy ever, and definitely 100% a cinnamon roll! He’s also really mature and gave off the impression that he’s much older than he really is.
Cinderella’s character was very naive and a bit all over the place. Her relationship with Sikandar was quite mixed to be honest. And there were many points in the story that were easy to predict unfortunately…
Hope you all enjoyed my review! I really enjoyed reading this one! Bye guys, happy reading! x
