Publisher's Summary

A USA Today Recommended Series!

Beauty is cursed, and only the Beast can save her... Don't miss Withering Rose, a fantasy romance from best-selling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Beauty and The Beast.... 

"As the heat finally disappeared, I felt the bloom blossom in the very core of my soul, a rose just like my name - a ticking clock hidden behind a façade of beauty. From that moment on, my life would become a countdown, and all I could do was wait and watch as the petals of time slowly started to fall." 

Omorose Bouchene has a secret - magic. There's only one problem. At the age of seven, an earthquake struck, catapulting her into a new world. A land made of skyscrapers and cell phones. Fast cars and fluorescent lights. A land where magic isn't supposed to exist and anyone who wields it is the enemy.  

But after 10 years of hiding, she's desperate to find a place where she can be free. Because all magic comes with a curse, and her curse is time - every ounce of power she uses strips days off of her life. The clock is winding down, and the only option left is to escape to the realm of the Beast. But the king of monsters isn't what he seems. And the more Omorose opens her heart, the more she comes to realize that the only person she may need to fear is herself. 

This is the second book in Once Upon a Curse, a series of interconnected stand-alone novels all set in the same fantasy universe.

Love it!!

I am normally a very picky person about the books I read. I picked up this book because 1.I love fairy tales 2.the cover was pretty, I didn’t have high hopes when I first started, but it had me hooked within five minutes. I also haven’t read a YA book in years because I feel like it’s not mature enough for my tastes, but this book does a wonderful job at keeping me interested. I am very much looking forward to reading that rest of the books in this series!!
