Gothel is a witch. Punished for the actions of her mother, her choice is simple: either she stands guard over Princess Rapunzel—or she dies. But just because a choice is easy doesn’t mean it’s pleasant. Protecting Rapunzel means watching as the princess lays trapped in a tower, bedridden by hair that is so long and heavy it’s slowly driving her insane. Gothel’s life has become one of imprisonment and solitude as well—until a prince and his handsome squire appear at the tower.
Only one object can cut Rapunzel’s hair and end the curse: a pair of magical shears. But the shears are guarded by the most terrifying witches in the land, who also happen to be Gothel’s aunts. As Gothel and the prince’s squire, Raj Talmund, work to form a plan, she finds herself more and more drawn to the mysterious young man from the Outerlands. Unfortunately, his destiny is far more dangerous than she wants to admit: to save a princess, he must kill the witch who's been forced to guard her.
THE WITCH'S TOWER is the first in an inspired new series of fairy-tale retellings from award-winning fantasy author Tamara Grantham.
This book is one of the best versions of fairytales that I have every read! Full of romance, adventure, and so much more this book takes you on a thrilling ride. Can’t wait to read the next one!
I want to get this book but I don’t know what the age rates?
Enjoyed reading this
The author kept me reading this from start to finish this unexpected twist on the story of rapunzel was very interesting I would enjoyed anyone over 15 to read this.
There was a bit too much sensuality in it for me.
The language is pretty clean and there's nothing more intimate than kissing, but the main characters seem too focused on their feelings for each other.
