“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. Every week, book bloggers all over the world showcase and share upcoming releases that we want to receive, read and devour.
Here is my pick of the week:
A reimagining of Sleeping Beauty from a master storyteller.
Gorse is the thirteenth and youngest in a family of fairies tied to the evil king’s land and made to do his bidding. Because of an oath made to the king’s great-great-ever-so-many-times-great-grandfather, if they try to leave or disobey the royals, they will burst into a thousand stars.
When accident-prone Gorse falls ill just as the family is bid to bless the new princess, a fairytale starts to unfold. Sick as she is, Gorse races to the castle with the last piece of magic the family has left — a piece of the Thread of Life. But that is when accident, mayhem, and magic combine to drive Gorse’s story into the unthinkable, threatening the baby, the kingdom, and all.
With her trademark depth, grace, and humor, Jane Yolen tells readers the “true” story of the fairy who cursed Sleeping Beauty.
