    1. Prince Edouard and Prince Hamlin had been fighting each other since they first met at the party for Princess Roderika, a.k.a Sleeping Beauty. The very same day when the Witch put a curse on her. Since then, every time the two princes met, they always fought, sometimes physically. Later on, they slowly realized that their fates are linked. Not only between them, but also with Roderika's fate.This is not a new take on sleeping beauty. It's more like a companion to it.(view spoiler)[It's a nice app [...]


    2. I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was an interesting view to take on the Sleeping Beauty fairytale and on the concept of destiny - especially in a romantic context.(view spoiler)[I love how the relationship developed between Hamlin and Edouard. Reading through their childhoods and the struggles and misunderstandings they have was a wonderful way to get to know these characters and let me really believe in their connection. The influence of their society impacting their lives at such early [...]


    3.

Though the narrative does have an air of enchantment about it, a “happily ever after” feels a million mi [...]


    4. OH. MY. GOODNESS. I can't believe at how good this book is. //throws feels through the window\\I liked it so much-- liked? Wrong choice of word, I LOVED it. ♥♥♥It was like reading a folktale but revisited in a m/m key.At first, I disliked Edouard- it was so annoying and unpleasant since a little kid. But after a certain point I started to like him- bit by bit. My fav since the beginning of the book was obviously Hamlin, poor kid mistreated by everyone, even by his half-brothers-- I'm so gl [...]


    5. Nice setting and some interesting characters, and well written.Unfortunately, it seemed that a big portion of the book was filled with characters contemplating about various fairy tales or aristocracy related topics (fate, superstition, nobility etc). While there were some interesting thoughts that could push the story into many interesting directions, they were pointless as they did not effect the story in anyway. So to me there wasn't actually much happening in the book. Furthermore, many part [...]
