Blurb: The first book of a series, The Fairy Godmother introduces us to the world of the Five Hundred Kingdoms and the Tradition. Elena Klovis was to be her kingdom’s version of Cinderella, complete with an evil step-family and the nickname “Ella Cinders”. One problem: the prince is eleven. Elena seeks out work and is taken as apprentice to a real-life Fairy Godmother, her own fairy godmother no less. She begins training to become a Fairy Godmother herself and all the wonders, and troubles, that come with it. One of those is a Prince by the name of Alexander that turns out to be a total ass. Well, at least he turns into one after trying to mow down Elena. Now, Elena has more kingdoms to take care of, a royal jackass on her hands, and a lot more adventure on her plate than she first assumed she would encounter.
