I actually liked this book even more than the first book of the series!
Effie works as a maid for a noble family that has no regard for their servants and overworks them all the time. She and her fellow servants are angry and stressed and take that out on each other, while having to act subserviant towards thei employers. She develops a crush on the youngest brother of the family and believes him to be kinder than the other family members. She meets Lord Blackthorn (from the previous book), a faerie who wishes to be more virtuous and who decides to help her marry the youngest brother. Sadly, he doesn't have much common sense, so on top of trying to have a conversation with her crush, Effie has to try to stop Lord Blackthorn from spreading too much chaos.

I really liked all of the characters (except the ones that were meant to be unlikeable). The anger and stress caused by the family they served, and the effects on the servants and their interactions was well portrayed. I loved the friendship between Lydia and Effie. Lydia is truly a ride-or-die type of friend and if her sory hadn't been so neatly tied up by the epilogue, I would've loved to read a book about her.
The romance was developed really realistically, despite the book being fairly short. You could really see how Effie's words and actions slowly changed changed the love interest. And how in turn the love interest helped and influenced Effie to become a more balanced person and use her anger in a more productive way.

If I had to say something negative about this book, it's that the epilogue tied everything up too neatly. Although that is just personal taste and obviously fits with the fairytale-vibe of the whole series. And it doesn't take anything away from how good the book is :) ( )

Sparkling light fun. Giving Cinderella a whirl to some purpose, the didactic is completely integral. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed Half a Soul, the first book in the Regency Faerie Tale series, despite never having been a particular fan of anything regency-related. The wit, the banter, and the outright inconvenience of faeries made for such a charming and heartwarming story about righting wrongs and finding love in the most unexpected places.

Enter Ten Thousand Stitches. I knew from the previous book that Lord Blackthorn was truly the most delightful of meddling faeries, but I didn't know how much his enthusiasm and overt desire for virtuous development would endear me to him. And Effie... "You know what you are, Effie? You're chronically helpful. It's a disease." Through our dedicated maid with such quiet indignation, we learn that silent suffering actually doesn't help anyone, least of all the one simmering with rage just below the surface.

I've read quite a few tales about the fair folk, but Atwater's stories are something entirely else. Hidden within a retelling of sorts (in this case, Cinderella) is a message about justice, shattering falsehoods and finally, a general desire to simply be good. Each story thusfar has been thoroughly enjoyable with a very satisfying end, and I look forward to what comes next.

I received a free advanced copy from Booksprout - despite having this book pre-ordered already - and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
