Waiting on Wednesday #86


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay (Delacorte):

princessofthornsGame 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?


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

I love fairy tale retellings, and this one, which not precisely retelling the story of Sleeping Beauty, has added enough new elements to make it sound fresh and different. I like retellings with twists, and having this dive into the actual tale of Sleeping Beauty (complete with the ogre – YES!) makes this right up my alley!

Release Date: December 9, 2014
