Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay is a wonderful romantic adventure with fairy tales interwoven. Upon her death, Sleeping Beauty gave her daughter, Princess Aurora, fairy blessings of strength in battle and mercy, but the blessings come with a curse that if a boy kisses her he will lose his freewill and become a mindless puppet who follows her blindly. Now Aurora fights for her life as the evil ogre queen seeks to capture her. Prince Niklaas has been cursed by his immortal father to become a swan on his 18th birthday so that he will not be eligible to inherit the kingdom. Niklaas learns that if he marries a princess who is heir to another realm then the curse will be broken; therefore, he madly seeks to locate the missing Princess Aurora. Disguised as a boy, Princess Aurora teams up with Niklaas and a strong bond of friendship ensues. Eventually truths of identity and curses are revealed, but never fear, there is a fairy tale ending, and it is great!
