The fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty like you’ve never heard it before…
Daemond hates King Conan of Aireland. Why? Because he cursed Daemond for eternity. Being the less powerful magician of the two, Daemond aims his retaliation at Conan’s greatest treasure: his daughter Meghan.
Conan knows his wards cannot protect Meghan from Daemond forever. He plans for her to marry Prince Edan of Belkland, a powerful young magician who protect her. But Meghan’s safety depends upon her choosing their protection, and Conan worries that teenage rebellion may destroy her…
Aric, Prince of Carodor, hates Edan for several reasons. First, he stole Meghan, who would have been Aric’s fiancé. Second, one of the avalanches Edan caused killed the love of Aric’s life. The best way to get revenge? Persuade Meghan to fall in love with him instead.
Princess Meghan has lived her sixteen years in relative ease. She corresponds often with Prince Edan, her fiancé. But when she meets Prince Aric, she begins to question her father’s rules. Is there really a terrible curse that hangs over her head? Or is that one of the tools her father uses to keep her reigned in?
Oooooh, I like a good story with …curses and evil magicians. You build a great set of tensions within the first few chapters that will draw the reader forward through the book. The wrting is fluent and very easy to read, with just enough dialogue to set a great pace. My only concern is the use of the name Conan, being the name of a rather famous Barbarian.~M. E.
