Beauty's Curse Publisher's Summary
For four years, Princess Aurora of Rhone - Rose, to her friends - has searched the world for a way to break the curse placed on her by Magdalina, the wicked ruler of the fairies at war with her kingdom.
Under the curse, Rose is doomed to die on her 18th birthday after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. And time is running out.
On the eve of her 17th birthday, Rose makes the journey home with her friends - Theo, a priest with a penchant for revenge; Mary, a young and talented fairy; and Ethan and Sophia, siblings with a troubled past - as pressure from her father King Stefanos leaves her with two equally unsatisfying options: Abdicate the throne, or get married.
