"I don't want to play second fiddle to anyone. Especially not…”

"I don't want to play second fiddle to anyone. Especially not some prince who probably had no chance at ruling without me."

Briar is a Princess everyone assumes will inherit her father's throne, but she knows he's hesitating to truly name her his heir, and she's determined to proved herself worthy.

There is so much to love in this done in one story. Briar learns the value of true friends, and even better discovers the joy of genuine friendship. Her instincts prove to be one of her greatest strengths, and by the end of the story her youthful insecurities come face to face with a more mature understanding of what it is to rule/lead, and she gains a new perspective on decisions her parents have made.

I picked up a copy of Spindles and Spells and chose to share my thoughts.

(Sleeping Beauty) Some rendition with Briar Rose with help from Rapunzel helps to absolve her prophecy. She has a love interest in Lord Walter. I like the plot and storyline. It’s different and refreshing.

Briar Rose

Princess Briar’s tale and a retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty.
Briar has been adamant in her belief that prophecies are not real. She’s just as adamant in her desire to get her father to name her as his heir. Enter Grimm Academy. Briar compromises with her parents if she goes to Grimm her father will consider her request. While she is a somewhat unwilling student at first the more time she’s there the better she enjoys it. She makes friends, finds a special guy and has classes that challenge and enlighten her. The only drawback is Aramantha. Briar is given the task to be her new student guide but she feels there is something off about the girl. When the signs of her prophecy start to appear the more she suspects the new girl. Now Briar will need her friends more than ever if she’s to escape the destiny that her prophecy foretold.
Exciting and entertaining retelling of a classic tale. I love the creative changes within the story while not changing the core of it. And who doesn’t love a good hea?.

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
