Awakened Princess is book one in the Beyond The Curse fantasy series. It is inspired by fairy tale lore. It includes an m/f romantic subplot.
Sleeping Beauty meets Romeo and Juliet
A princess newly turned eighteen and made the heir. At her ball she meets a handsome prince whom she likes very much. When they become close both sets of parents warn them to be careful around each other, neither understands why. Until the princess discovers she’s been cursed and the prince’s father is the one who cursed her. Now she has a year before it comes to pass, a year to try and break it.
There’s hints of Romeo and Juliet and also Sleeping Beauty in the story but more as an homage. Definitely though a combination of a tragedy and a fairytale story. There are hopes of happily ever after but that is more for future books in the series (there is a cliffhanger ending). I like the tone of the story it hits the right mix of lightness and dark. I also enjoyed the mix of quirky and eccentric characters that compliment the main duo. The story feels both modern and full of fantasy in a good way. Very entertaining read.
