We have finally made it through all 8 books in the Villains Series by Serena Valentino!! I know that there is supposed to be a ninth book coming out some time this year, but I am happy to have finally caught up on the series!
Book 8 is about Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s step mother. If you are familiar with the Cinderella story, then you know that Lady Tremaine is considered the wicked, mean, step mother.
Now, I felt like this book so much untapped potential, but I can appreciate the fact that this story didn’t go in the direction that I was expecting it to go. I felt like Cinderella was going to be made out to be the bad guy in this retelling and she wasn’t. BUT, she also wasn’t innocent either. I don’t think we were able to tap into the thoughts of all the characters. Lady Tremaine being a widow was a different twist on the story. I can also appreciate the different elements in the story that make you think.
I don’t think this is the best book in this series, but it still wasn’t bad read.
Have you read any books from the Villains Series? What are your thoughts?
