Purity cannot abide the darkness.

It’s been two years since Ellison defeated her stepsisters and sent her evil stepmother back into the Abyss.

Though she’s learning to control her dark magic and has spent time traveling with Prince William and bringing peace to the kingdom, one fact remains. She is a necromancer and he is a paladin of light. And so, the king refuses to give his blessing for them to marry.

To appease his father, William has begun to avoid her. But when even her younger brother Edward grows distant, Ellison learns her mother’s spirit has been visiting Edward in secret, threatening to overwhelm him with her own loneliness and longing. When Ellison accidentally touches her mother’s spirit, her tainted touch condemns her mother’s spirit to eternal damnation.

Ellison resolves to descend into hell to save her mother’s soul and bring her physical body back to the world of the living. William hopes this good deed will bring Ellison into favor and finally allow them to be wed.

But the journey through hell is fraught with peril. Temptations abound and the demons Ellison sent back to the Abyss are thirsty for revenge.

Evil cannot be defeated without sacrifice—but when that sacrifice means choosing between the ones Ellison loves and her very own life, how far is she willing to go to make her family whole again?
Now on to the interview!

Hey Faith!! First I want to say welcome back to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! CINDERELLA’S INFERNO was freaking AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the events leading up to CINDERELLA’S INFERNO and the characters?

If you haven’t read Cinderella, Necromancer, go do that before tackling Cinderella’s Inferno! It provides all the necessary background for the second book, which opens two years after the closing events in book one. During those two years, Ellison and William have been traveling the kingdom (and elsewhere) killing demons and fighting evil. Although they’re promised to each other, the kingWilliam’s fatherhasnt allowed the wedding to take place yet, so the book opens with a lot of frustration and unresolved emotional conflict that sets the stage for the events that follow.

So what’s next for you? What are you working on now?

I’m working on another YA novel, but I can’t say much about it just yet. It’s very different from the Cinderella duology, though! And it’s not a retelling.

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

Not unless you count Hund being inspired by the various dogs I’ve met throughout my life which I guess is pretty accurate, all things considered.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

I love animals, so I loved including a dog in this book as a regular character. It was fun to have him interact and help out along the way! My least favorite would probably be Will’s friends. They don’t have a lot of page time, so I didn’t get much of a chance to develop them, though I did like being able to bring back almost all the familiar faces from the first book.

What is your favorite passage/scene in CINDERELLA’S INFERNO?

Spoilers! I actually can’t say without giving away some of the major twists. All I’ll say is it happens on a riverbank, and it’s a moment of significant character development for Ellison.

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

For this book, I read through the version of Dante’s Inferno that is referenced in the historical notes, as well as read several books of essays on the poem, the time period, and hundreds of pages of commentary. I wanted to make sure I captured the spirit of Dante’s work within the folds of the story I wanted to tell.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend?

I don’t really do book boyfriends, so how about an ultimate book best friend! I’d love to hang out with Luna Lovegood for a day, but I realize that’s a bit of a cop-out answer because who wouldn’t? My next choice would be Basra from Shadow Run.

What inspired you to write YA?

I think it just felt like a natural fit for the stories I wanted to tell. It wasn’t a conscious decision so much as it simply happened as I planned out my plots and characters.

Lightening Round Questions

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

I’m currently reading Tell Me No Lies by A.V. Geiger, the sequel to Follow Me Back.

What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?

I’m 100% a Ravenclaw! I have a lot of Ravenclaw merch haha.

Twitter or Facebook?


Favorite Superhero?

Dark Phoenix. Who I realize is actually kind of a villain, but it’s all about 

Favorite TV show?

I Am Not a Robot, which is possibly the most perfect show ever made from beginning to end.

Sweet or Salty?


Any Phobias?


Song you can’t get enough of right now?

“Anpanman” from BTS

2018 Movie you’re most looking forward to?

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Im SUCH A SUCKER for dinosaur movies! XD

Thanks so much Faith for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read CINDERELLA’S INFERNO!

She can often be found writing in local coffee shops, namely because it’s hard to concentrate with a cat lying on the keyboard and a small, colorful parrot screaming into her ear.
