Inhaltsangabe zu „Ash“ von Malinda Lo

An ALA Best Book for Young Adults A Kirkus Best Book for Young Adults A William C. Morris Award YA Debut Award Finalist§CINDERELLA RETOLD§In the wake of her father's death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, re-reading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she begins to believe that her wish may be granted. §The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King's royal Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash's capacity for love-and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.§Entrancing and romantic, Ash is an empowering retelling of Cinderella about the connection between life and love, and solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepest grief.

    The Book Ash kind of a retelling of the fairytale Cinderella. After Ash’s mother has died her father found a new wife (Lady Isobel). She and her two daughters Ana and Clara move in with Ash and her father. Shortly after that her father gets sick and dies. Lady Isobel forces Ash to be her maid to pay off her father’s debts. So Ash is treated like a slave by her stepmother and her stepsisters. When no one is at home Ash enters the forest where she meets Sidhean, a male elf, with whom she forms a sort of friendship. Furthermore she falls in love with the King’s Huntress Kaisa, who she gets to know in the forest. I really like the concept of the book. But it wasn’t that good explained and described. You don’t get to know the characters that well, as they aren’t well-developed. I just couldn’t understand the motives of Ash or any other character in this book. The only interesting one was Clara her stepsister. I wish there were more scenes with her to see if she is really a good person or if she has other intentions. I didn’t like Ash that much because either she is naïve or just plain stupid. Unfortunately I guess it’s the second. I mean she knows that she shouldn’t make deals with fairies. She even knows the price she will have to pay and she does it regardless. The prince doesn’t play an important role and is barely even mentioned. I would’ve liked to know if the fairytales which were mentioned were true or not, but at the end of the book you don’t really know anything about that or even if the fairies are good or evil. All in all I believe that this idea had potential but I think that the characters and the world of the fairies had no depth. But I liked the fairytales which were told in this book. Moreover the writing of the author was really good.
