A Wicked Thing
by Rhiannon Thomas

Expected publication: February 24th 2015 by Harper Teen

Blurb (Goodreads):
Rhiannon Thomas's dazzling debut novel is a spellbinding reimagining of what happens after happily ever after.

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.

Rhiannon Thomas weaves together vivid scenes of action, romance, and gorgeous gowns to reveal a richly imagined world…and Sleeping Beauty as she’s never been seen before.

A fairytale re-telling + Sleeping Beauty. I'm sold. ;)

  3. A Wicked Thing was one of my WoW picks the other week – doesn't it look fabulous? Love the idea of Sleeping Beauty having to figure out what to do now that she's woken up and doesn't even *know* this prince...
