Waking Rose: A Fairy Tale Retold
Ever since he rescued her from Certain Death, Rose Brier has had a crush on Ben Denniston, otherwise known as Fish. But Fish, struggling with problems of his own, thinks that Rose should look elsewhere for a knight in shining armor.
Trying to forget him, Rose goes to college, takes up with a sword-wielding band of brothers, and starts an investigation into her family's past that proves increasingly mysterious. Then Rose experiences a tragic accident...or was it an "accident"? Fish, assisted by Rose's new friends, finds himself drawn into a search through a tangle of revenge and corruption that might be threatening Rose's very life. The climax is a crucible of fear, fight, and fire that Fish must pass through to reach Rose and conquer his dragons.
This third book from the immensely popular Fairy Tale Novel series is a modern retelling of The Sleeping Beauty by Brothers Grimm.
