Awakening by Laura Greenwood


Take a journey to an alternate world where not everything is what it seems.

In an effort to have a child, the Queen makes a deal with the Dark King, but she soon discovers that the deal has dire consequences for her beloved Sleeping Beauty. In an effort to help, the Queen’s mother alters the curse so that Keira will sleep for 100 years, but there is a catch; if Keira awakens before then she may still be doomed.

After sleeping for over 90 years, Keira is awoken by Philip, the son of the Dark King and the one she was intended for. Despite sharing his father’s bloodline, Philip refuses to be like his father and won’t make Keira do anything that she isn’t ready for.

Supported by a powerful witch and her brother, Hansel and Gretel, Philip and Keira have to make a choice, one that will define Keira’s destiny. Changing their lives forever. goodreads Crystal Marie_s RamblingsTAG

This is a very strange book for me to review.  When I started it, it had the feel of the Sleeping Beauty trilogy from Anne Rice, but as I got further into the story, it went a completely different way.  Which I enjoyed a lot.

This was a very quick read, I would say that it would be a really good lunchtime read if your looking for something that has smutty times, as well as will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next.

The twists and turns that Greenwood added to the story certainly made it their own.  And it kept my attention and left me wanting to read more.

There is a cliffhanger at the end of this story, at least for me there was, and so I hope that Greenwood will be continuing on with this series in the future.
