Waiting on Wednesday #50

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine.

My pick of the week is...

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

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?

~*~Why I Am Waiting~*~

I absolutely loved OF BEAST AND BEAUTY by Stacey Jay. Her retelling skills are so awesome it's nuts and I am a retelling nerd so this is an obvious win-win. Plus, it's not like this book is just Sleeping Beauty...it's Sleeping Beauty's daughter! Instant curiosity and excitement on my end!
