Description from the publisher:
A sleeping beauty. A kingdom frozen in time. Only one can save them all.
Once upon a time...
Lord Siward intended to go hunting, but when he stumbles upon a ruined castle and accidentally wakes the mysterious maiden sleeping inside, he knows his holiday is over.
With the kingdom in trouble, Siward should be protecting the realm, but every time Rosamond looks at him, he gets lost in the girl's green eyes. Who is the mysterious beauty, and why does he feel she holds the key to the kingdom's deliverance?
AWAKEN is the second book in the Romance a Medieval Fairytale series. Each will stand alone as a complete retelling of our childhood favorites. AWAKEN is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty.
I was so excited to get this book and absolutely was not disappointed. Demelza Carlton has done it again! AWAKEN is a perfect re-telling of Sleeping Beauty with wonderfully imaginative additions that give the tale more life than it ever had before. Let’s face it; Sleeping Beauty has probably always been one of the most vapid of the princesses, a pretty shell waiting for her prince to make his entrance. Now she has heart, personality, and she is allowed to grow in this fantastic re-telling of the classic love fantasy. She even has a little magic!
The first chapter of DANCE, a retelling of Cinderella, was at the end of the file for AWAKEN and I loved it as well. I’m looking forward to many more fairy-tales retold by the talented Demelza Carlton.
