Waiting on Wednesday: Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I enjoyed reading Of Beauty and Beast from last year. I thought that Stacey Jay did a great job in creating a twist on a classic fairy tale. I'm hoping this one will be even better and so it's my WOW pick for this week:

Princess of ThornsPrincess of Thorns
by Stacey Jay
YA Fantasy
December 9th 2014 by Delacorte Press


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?
