About Once Upon A Princess Saga

“I have better things to do.”
“Like what?” Rose asked. “Waste your life on a fool’s journey, under a silly girl’s orders?”
“I have never considered saving your life to be the same as wasting mine, Rosary.” He came and stood in front of her, the ease of his presence replaced by an unusual heat rather than familiar warmth. Rose had never before been bothered by the six inches he stood taller than her, but all of a sudden the shadow of his strength imposed itself on her.
The cursed beauty of the moonlight revealed the clarity and sharpness of his eyes as she gazed up at him. “What if you did waste your life though? What if?”
“If I have wasted my life, I have wasted it on you. Willingly."

For four years, Princess Aurora of Rhone—Rose to her friends—has searched the world for a way to break the curse placed on her by Magdalina, the wicked ruler of the fairies at war with her kingdom. Under the curse, Rose is doomed to die on her eighteenth birthday after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. And time is running out.

On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Rose makes the journey home with her friends—Theo, a priest with a penchant for revenge; Mary, a young and talented fairy; and Ethan and Sophia, siblings with a troubled past–as pressure from her father, King Stefanos, leaves her with two equally unsatisfying options: Abdicate the throne, or get married.

Enjoy this novella series retelling of the Sleeping Beauty, with new characters, new plot twists, and plenty of action and adventure. Perfect for teen and young adult historical fantasy readers.

Beauty's Curse on Goodreads

My Review of Beauty's Curse:

Beauty's Curse is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. This is a coming of age, four-book series with plenty of adventure and romance. The characters are well developed and likable with plenty of interesting dialogue. The challenges they face are exciting.

In book one, we meet Rose, the princess cursed by a fairy. She spends her teenage years pursuing a way to break the curse. In her pursuit, she faces many dangerous situations. She doesn't fear death, but eternal sleep. And, she is a fully trained knight with a devoted team.

Rose's most loyal team member is Theo. He is able to read her moods and always knows what to say at the right time. Rose wants revenge on the fairy that cursed her and Theo wants revenge for the fairy responsible for his parents' deaths. Stronger than his need for revenge is his secret love for Rose. However, she doesn't allow herself to think of her future like falling in love until the curse is broken.

My Review of Beauty's Quest:

In Beauty's Quest (Book 2), Rose has to face her biggest fear. She thinks that it's failure, but she discovers something that she fears even more. Her team is right there beside her. Prince Phillip is a new addition to the team. Theo sees Phillip's devotion toward Rose and struggles with feelings of jealousy. He reminds himself that Phillip would be the better candidate to marry Rose, should they break the curse in time. Phillip would like to be excepted by the others and for them to consider him as a close friend too. When they are shipwrecked on an island, everyone is put to the test.
