This was a DRC from Edelweiss. Publication date is expected to be February 20th.
So we all know that Sleeping Beauty's prince woke her with a kiss from a hundred year sleep, after she was felled by a spindle due to a curse from a wicked fairy, right?
Put the tale in the proper time period, tell it like it was historical fiction, and add a Grimm twist (ha, see what I did there?) to it with a pox epidemic, and you've got this book.
I'm usually somewhat of a sucker for fairytales retold, and this was no exception, which was the reason I requested a DRC of it. However, it turned out to be a bit darker than I had expected.
If you like historical fiction, you will enjoy this. It does tend to ramble a bit, but the ending is more than worth the effort to get there.
