About the Book
Fi is a treasure hunter under a dark curse. Shane is a tough-as-dirt girl warrior with a secret past. While searching a trap-filled ruin, Fi pricks her finger on a bone spindle and awakens the spirit of Briar Rose. Fi never wanted a partner. Now she’s stuck with two of them: a kickass girl mercenary falling hard for a mysterious witch, and a sleeping prince who’s waited a century for a kiss. Vicious Witch Hunters, perilous dark magic, and treacherous exes stand in their way.
A genderbent Sleeping Beauty retelling with ruins, riddles, battle axes, and snark!
