Summary of the Book:
Does true love break curses or begin them? The dark sorceress of “Sleeping Beauty” reclaims her story in this sequel to Malice.
The Dark Grace is dead.
Feared and despised for the sinister power in her veins, Alyce wreaks her revenge on the kingdom that made her an outcast. Once a realm of decadence and beauty, Briar is now wholly Alyce’s wicked domain. And no one will escape the consequences of her wrath. Not even the one person who holds her heart.
Princess Aurora saw through Alyce’s thorny facade, earning a love that promised the dawn of a new age. But it is a love that came with a heavy price: Aurora now sleeps under a curse that even Alyce’s vast power cannot seem to break. And the dream of the world they would have built together is nothing but ash.
Alyce vows to do anything to wake the woman she loves, even if it means turning into the monster Briar believes her to be. But could Aurora love the villain Alyce has become?
Or is true love only for fairy tales?
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to start by saying that my heart and soul were left in ruin after the first book and this book just added to that pain. It is an amazing tale and a different look at this classic story. I feel for both Alyce and Aurora and the land of Briar. It was a book I am going to have to read again well both of them. I like when the classics are told from a different point of view. Will love conquer all or is that just for storybooks.
My Rating of the Book: 5 stars
