Fire and Cinder by Christina Bauer - Book Tour + Giveaway

Fire And Cinder
Christina Bauer
(Fairy Tales of the Magicorum, #6)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: February 23rd 2021
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Meet the Magicorum: modern folks who are supernaturally locked into fairy tale life templates. For eighteen-year-old Elle, that role is Cinderella. Meanwhile, Agatha is her evil stepsister. Things go downhill from there…

Cinderella On The Run
Elle—never call her Cinderella—has found the love of her life in Alec Le Charme, the prince of a jewelry dynasty. But when Alec gets spirited away, Elle must ditch her Manhattan home for the perilous Faerie Lands. To save Alec, Elle must also swap her glass slippers for a flying carpet. But will switching templates from Cinderella to Aladdin snap Elle’s sanity?

Whatever. Bring on the straight jacket. Elle is one Cinderella who’s determined to save her prince, no matter what.

Evil Stepsister or Elf Queen?
Agatha always accepted her role as Elle’s evil stepsister. Then her life template changes from nasty sibling to evil elf queen. Agatha has one thought on that score. Thanks but no thanks. Agatha refuses the regal life, even though stepping away from her crown means ignoring her lifelong attraction to the elf prince, Jacoby.

Then everything changes. Agatha discovers that Elle’s life is at risk… and the only way to save her Cinderella is by teaming up with Jacoby. Trouble is, that’s a lot of togetherness. Working with Jacoby could easily end in disaster, not only for Agatha’s heart, but also for Elle and Alec’s lives.

Dream Casting For My Magicorum Series

By Christina Bauer, author

As part of the launch tour for my new book, FIRE AND CINDER (Fairy Tales of the Magicorum 6), the lovely folks at Jazzy Book Reviews have asked me to share my dream cast for my magicorum series.

So without further ado, here goes!

Bryar Rose, a modern sleeping beauty
In terms of looks, I think a teenage Paris Hilton would be great for this role. In fact, my inspiration board for this character includes a few pics of Paris. In terms of acting chops, I’d like to graft some of Awkwafina’s personality in there. Bryar Rose has sass! 

Knox, her werewolf boyfriend
This time, I don’t need to break out looks and personality. Please, let there be a time machine where I could bring back a young Marlon Brando to play Knox! Marlon could just as easily punch an enemy in the nose as kiss your face off. Love!

Elle, a modern Cinderella
Wow, this one is tough! You’d need a mash-up of the looks of Chloe Grace Moretz… the toughness of Sigourney Weaver in the first Alien movie… and the sharp wit that makes Tina Fey everyone’s favorite. How hard can that be to find?

Alec, a modern prince charming
A teenage Brad Pitt, no question about it. Cute, funny, sexy as hell. Le sigh!

Agatha, an evil stepsister
Julia Louis Dreyfus before Seinfeld could pull this off. She’s strong-willed, funny and open about having faults. 

Jacoby, an elf prince
Gah! Another tough one! I have to go with a teenage Robert Downey Junior. He is handsome and funny, sure. But he also can also show real pain and inner anguish. Jacoby hasn’t had an easy life!

So there you have it… my dream cast for Magicorum! Now where did I put that time machine?

Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
