Two girl treasure hunters. One sleeping prince. A hundred-year-old curse and one very angry witch. Fantasy with m/f and f/f romance for fans of Cinderella Is Dead. A pacey, fractured twist on a classic fairy tale! Filore, a treasure hunter with a knack for riddles, is busy running from her own deadly curse, when she pricks her finger on a spindle. Bound to the sleeping prince Briar Rose with the spindle's magic - and chosen as the only person who can wake him - Fi is stuck with the prince's ghost until she can break his ancient curse and save his kingdom. She's going to need a partner. A warrior huntswoman with an axe to grind (literally), Shane couldn't care less about curses and ancient texts. But instead of riches, the two girls find trouble. Dark magic, witch hunters, nightmarish beasts - and of course, curses - all stand in their way as Fi and Shane undertake the dangerous journey into a forgotten kingdom where the sleeping prince's body waits.

Nice read
It has a good story line, who doesn't love Sleeping Beaty but it just ended so bluntly, just done and dusted. I assume there is a follow on......

Indiana Jones + Fairy Tales; what's not to love?!
The Bone Spindle is an action packed fantasy adventure that for the most part didn’t feel like a fairytale remake to me. It could quite easily be an origin... READ MORE
