Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay was released last month and I didn't get a post up about it. It was also released in the UK, see it at Princess of Thorns (UK Link). I received an ARC of it and it's a fun book with Sleeping Beauty inspiration and some Swan Lake and Rapunzel thrown into the mix, too. Highly recommended.
Game of Thrones meets the Grimm’s fairy tales in this twisted, fast-paced romantic fantasy-adventure about Sleeping Beauty’s daughter, a warrior princess who must fight to reclaim her throne.
Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy yet cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora’s throne ten years ago.
Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it’s too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise forever keep them from finding their one true love?
