's review

it was ok


Starting where A Wicked Thing picks up, we follow Aurora as she fights her way through the hardships of being a wanted criminal and figuring out how to control this power that she now has. This new story of the Sleeping Beauty that we all know and love that has taken on such an adventurous tale.

To be honest the book didn't grip me like the first one did. I loves the first one because of the story that came after Aurora woke up, I loved that. Maybe the wait between the first book and the sequel was too long and made me forget the story but I felt very disconnected. I should've maybe read A Wicked Thing first before just jumping right into this story.

Aurora is still such a strong character - which is nice to have. A female lead that is strong in her own will and doesn't necessarily rely on anyone else. I love taking the character of sleeping beauty who is usually seen as a weak woman who's asleep waiting for her true love to come kiss her awake and making her this strong, headstrong woman.
