A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas

A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas
Published on February 24, 2015

Summary: "One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that she should be living happily ever after. But as Aurora understands all too well, the truth is nothing like the fairy tale.

Her family is long dead. Her "true love" is a kind stranger. And her whole life has been planned out by political foes while she slept.

As Aurora struggles to make sense of her new world, she begins to fear that the curse has left its mark on her, a fiery and dangerous thing that might be as wicked as the witch who once ensnared her. With her wedding day drawing near, Aurora must make the ultimate decision on how to save her kingdom: marry the prince or run." --From Goodreads

I really enjoyed this unique retelling of Sleeping Beauty.  Aurora wakes up after a hundred years and comes to the realization that her family is dead and now she must marry the Prince that kissed her.  Overall, I really did enjoy this story.  The author fleshed out the more main characters, and I'm hoping that some others get more time in upcoming books.  I have no doubt that there will be more books, given the ending.  Aurora finally took a stand for herself, and now I'm excited to see what she intends to do with her newfound freedom.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy from my library.
