You think you know the story of Sleeping Beauty, but the real story is far more spellbinding... Gorse is the thirteenth and youngest in a family of fairies tied to the evil king's land and made to do his bidding. When accident-prone Gorse falls ill just as the family is bid to bless the new princess, a fairytale starts to unfold. Sick as she is, Gorse races to the castle with the last piece of magic the family has left--a piece of the Thread of Life. But that is when accident, mayhem, and magic combine to drive Gorse's story into the unthinkable, threatening the baby and the kingdom.
