Apolline is happy hunting magical creatures on her pirate infested outer-perimeter planet. She is a fantastic shot, and doesn’t flinch at the blood and guts of her kills. Never once did she consider she could be the missing Princess of Tyrone.
All her life, she has heard the story of the Princess, cursed to sleep for eternity, unless her betrothed, the Prince of Oran, gave her true love’s kiss. Although Apolline knows she is betrothed, she thinks her fairy guardians arranged it out of ignorance of human ways. The thought she could be a princess is inconceivable.
Then Allard appears. Handsome, charming—but he’s not hers to have. He’s betrothed, too. Her guardians warn her against her new found friendship, but she and Allard meet in secret anyway. Despite her rough exterior, he sees beyond her gun-slinging bravado, and their love blossoms.
But the deadline for the sleeping curse is approaching. If Apolline falls in love with the wrong person, she could end up sleeping forever.
A quirky, adventurous retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with a less than princess-ly princess!
First off that cover was the major selling point for me i just had to gaze and it in wonder of how pretty it is. Second this story was very cute and i adored reading it. I really like the uniqueness of this story telling retelling of sleeping beauty you got all the main facts from the story but twisted up in this sci-fi fantasy of planets and mystery. I also very excited as i tweeted with the author after reading to tell her i would like more of Apolline and Allard and she said they come back in book 5 i was like book 5 and she actually i am looking at this being 7 books. 7 books wow so excited to see where Katie goes with this adventure.
