Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.
“Should” being the key word.
Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that?
All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that--if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.
But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.
I am a huge fan of Christina Bauer. I read or listen to everything of hers I can get my hands on. i love her imagination and the worlds she introduces me to. I also love listening to her, she narrates her own audiobooks. She brings life to each and everyone of her characters. I love how she always makes her female characters strong and leaders. I'm not a damsel in distress kind of girl. I love reading about strong women, real or made up. I cannot wait for book 2 in this series.
Wolves and Roses is book one in Christina's new series Fairy Tales of the Magicorum. The book is a whole new twist on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. Bryar Rose was adopted by 3 Fairies who she calls Auntis when she was an infant. Bryar just wants to be a normal girl and go to a normal high school and do things normal girls do since she is told she is a mortal and has no magical powers. And sh has no desire to marry the Prince, unlike Sleeping Beauty from the childhood story.
She has a sleeping curse that was placed on her when she was very young. She just has to get to her 18th birthday and then the curse will disappear. The curse puts Bryar Rose to sleep every time she gets excited or stressed. Her Aunties have given her a inhaler that if she breaths in the medicine she will not fall asleep.
Then Bryar meets Knox. Knox is a badboy Werewolf who falls straight out of Bryars dreams. It doesn't take him long to figure out the lies that have been told to Bryar her whole life. Now it's up to both of them to figure out how and what life altering changes need to be made in Bryar's life and quickly.
