Overview

Rose & Thorn by Sarah Prineas

This beauty isn’t sleeping! Discover the true story of Sleeping Beauty in Sarah Prineas’s bold YA fairy-tale retelling filled with thrilling adventure and romance, perfect for fans of the Lunar Chronicles and the Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy.

After the spell protecting her is destroyed, Rose seeks safety in the world outside the valley she had called home. She’s been kept hidden all her life to delay the three curses she was born with—curses that will put her into her own fairy tale and a century-long slumber. Accompanied by Griff, the handsome and mysterious Watcher, and Quirk, his witty and warmhearted partner, Rose tries to escape from the ties that bind her to her story. But will the path they take lead them to freedom, or will it bring them straight into the fairy tale they are trying to avoid?

Set in the world of Sarah Prineas’s Ash & Bramble fifty years later, Rose & Thorn is a powerful retelling of the classic “Sleeping Beauty” tale where the characters fight to find their own happy ever after.

3.5 stars I'm a sucker for anything Sleeping Beauty, so I was quite eager to get this in my hands. I liked this cast of characters. Rose and Griff and Quirk are complete opposites and it was entertaining reading them piece the entire situation together. There are a few twists and revelations I wasn't expecting and that was satisfying to see. Parts of the story felt really rushed. I'm not sure if the e-arc was missing some {GR says its 400+ pages, my e-copy was 274} or that's just how the story flowed. Either way, could have been fleshed out a bit. My main complaint is the several implied threats of rape. Rose gets attacked within the first few chapters. It's a paragraph or two of him forcefully kissing her and trying to shove his hand down her dress before someone walks in and he runs away. There are two other mentions later in the book from a man and woman who thrive off of torture and other "fun things." The word rape is never actually printed, but apparently Rose is so gorgeous, it makes everyone rapey. Overall, I loved the fairy tale aspect and how the way this continues the series. It was a quick read and I'll definitely be reading the next book, if there is one. **Huge thanks to Harper Teen and Edelweiss for providing the arc free of charge**
