A male sleeping beauty, an Anglo-Saxon curse and an oath, handed down from generation togeneration, to an unsuspecting – and unprepared – 21st century teenager…
16-year-old Merry is fed up with her feuding family – not to mention her emerging witch powers that she’s struggling to control and doing her best to deny. Then sweet, sensitive Jack comes into her life and she can’t help falling under his spell. The only problem? He’s possessed by a destructive centuries-old curse that Merry’s meant to overthrow.
She has lost her heart; will she also lose her life? Or in true fairytale tradition, can true love’s kiss save the day?
“Alongside the danger and drama, this rip-roaring novel is peppered with touches of humour and whimsy, such as when Merry checks Twitter while waiting for the King of Hearts to show up, and her matter-of-fact protest that she “should get to choose whether I want to face some evil wizard or not”. It’s a spellbinding story, and readers will surely feel hungry for the sequel.” ~ Love Reading For Kids (read the whole review here)
