Book Summary:

Trapped in a cursed sleep, the only experiences Princess Eglantine has are the ones in her dreams. There she meets Prince Henry of Fallund, a neighboring kingdom on the brink of war.

Meanwhile, Prince Henry’s brother Duncan discovers a vicious beast imprisoned for murder. Captivated by her, he works to free her from both the prison bars she’s locked behind and the ones surrounding her heart and mind. Sleeping Beauty and the Beast reinvents and seamlessly intertwines the classic fairy tales Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast.



I really enjoy twisted fairy tales. This one weaves together the stories of Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. Such an original spin on two classic tales. Take twin brothers, a wild barbaric woman and a cursed sleeping princess and you end up with two great love stories that unfold on the pages of this book.

It took me a couple of chapters to get into this story but once I made it that far I was hooked.
