Hello hello and welcome or welcome back to my little bookish corner of the internet. Today is my stop on the blog tour for Briarheart, a Sleeping Beauty retelling like you haven’t seen before, organised by TBR and Beyond Tours. You can find the schedule for all the stops here.
I was due to share my review of this book with you but due to my health being really pretty pants I’ve been unable to finish it in time, so for now I’ll be sharing a promotional post, and coming back with my review when I can.
Miriam may be the daughter of Queen Alethia of Tirendell, but she’s not a princess. She’s the child of Alethia and her previous husband, the King’s Champion, who died fighting for the king, and she has no ambitions to rule. When her new baby sister Aurora, heir to the throne, is born, she’s ecstatic. She adores the baby, who seems perfect in every way. But on the day of Aurora’s christening, an uninvited Dark Fae arrives, prepared to curse her, and Miriam discovers she possesses impossible power.
Soon, Miriam is charged with being trained in both magic and combat to act as chief protector to her sister. But shadowy threats are moving closer and closer to their kingdom, and Miriam’s dark power may not be enough to save everyone she loves, let alone herself.
