Waiting on Wednesday #81: Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay.

Expected Publication: December 9, 2014.
by: Delacorte Press.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Game of Thrones meets the Grimm's fairy tales in this twisted, fast-paced romantic fantasy-adventure about Sleeping Beauty's daughter, a warrior princess who must fight to reclaim her throne.

Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy yet cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora's throne ten years ago.

Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it's too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise forever keep them from finding their one true love?

Why I'm excited:
A fantasy continuing the Sleeping Beauty tale with a girl disguised as a boy and a cursed prince and an ogre queen? Wow. You can definitely count me in. Sounds like a pretty fantastic tale to me!

What are you waiting on this week?
