Book Shelf: The Moonlight Masquerade (City of Wishes #3) by Rachel Morgan

Elle is desperate enough to do the one thing she promised herself she’d never do: bargain with the Godmother for a wish. But if she pays the price, it will leave her forever changed.

So she makes the daring decision to lie to the Godmother.

She’ll pretend to pay the price.

Can she get away with her freedom before the Godmother finds out?

CITY OF WISHES is an urban fantasy serialized retelling of Cinderella. This is episode 3.

~ ~ ~

In a world of fae, vampires and shifters, where wishes can be bought and bargained for, Elle is human, bound to her stepmother by a slave charm. Her only hope at freedom is to wish for it. But the Godmother rules the illegal wish trade, and the price she demands is steep. Is Elle willing to pay it?

The Midnight Masquerade is the third novel in the City of Wishes serial by Rachel Morgan and is another deeply addictive and bewitching tale that sweeps readers up into a fast paced and entertaining adventure.

Elle Winter was so close to having enough Essence to buy her freedom with a wish, but that disappeared in a puff of smoke the day her stepmother found her secret stash. Now Elle has no choice but to turn to the Godmother in order to obtain a wish; something she told herself she would never do. It’s well known that the Godmother’s prices are high but Elle never expected what she would have to do pay the price. It’s something Elle knows would change her forever should she follow through, so she’s made the decision to lie to the Godmother. But can she get away before the Godmother finds out? Or is Elle's chance at freedom over before it ever truly began?

Having breezed through the first two instalments, I was super excited to dive into The Midnight Masquerade and did so as soon as I was able. Rachel Morgan continues to write such a fun and engaging story which is effortless to read but really entertaining. I’m invested in Elle’s story and am keen to see her find happiness. Magical and entertaining, The Midnight Masquerade is fast paced like the first two novels and well rounded—there’s danger, romance, humour, excitement—all tied together nicely.

Certain revelations may not come as a surprise but I sure loved seeing them come to pass. Dex played a smaller role in this instalment than he did in the others, but he and Elle continue to be so endearing to witness. I’m enjoying the building romance and the mystery surrounding the vampires and their plans for the kingdom.

Satisfying and entertaining, The Midnight Masquerade was simply so much fun and ending on another cliffhanger has guaranteed I’ll be dying to get my hands on Rachel Morgan’s next instalment as soon as it comes out! Highly recommend!
