    "I love anything to do with space and aliens and this book caught my attention since it had such moon people with mind controlling magic that made it fun to read.

    "I think step parents are mainly overlooked, they don't get the credit they deserve so I really appreciate books about step parents and I think more books should be written about them and read more to children."

    "I can't get over how cute this whole story and the author is. It is a rendition of Cinderella and a great one at that. It's a true story of a damsel in distress and the author does a wonderful job of painting the picture and bringing us into the fantasy world. You will laugh and cry and also feel angry on Gisela's behalf. If you enjoyed the original Cinderella you will love this."

    "Having a new stepmother myself, I wanted to read some literature about the subject. I found this book a bit bland and boring though. The mystery wasn't as suspenseful as I'd hoped, and the whole stepmother factor is really glossed over. Still, was an okay read."

    "Not the best of the series but it is ok. There places where I almost dozed off but quickly made myself read more. It took me a long time to read this because I have very little interest in it. The rest of the series is pretty great, but this one just seems to be thrown together."
