Till It Arrives is inspired by Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner’s Save the Date feature. Sometimes I read books that are not released anytime soon, but I want to share some of my feelings on the book right away, so Till It Arrives is born! (It also allows me to read books that appear later in my schedule, so that’s awesome too.) Since I don’t usually use GIFs in my reviews, I thought I’ll use plenty of GIFs to describe my feelings for the book I’m talking about in this feature!
Princess Aurora’s mother, the Sleeping Beauty, died in her arms when Aurora was seven years old, sacrificing herself to give Aurora her own fairy magic. In the ten years since, Aurora has learned that no magic comes for free. The price of hers is her romantic heart. Platonic love is the only kind she will ever know, and so, when her brother is captured by the queen’s men, Aurora dresses as a boy and sets off to raise an army, determined to free the only person it is safe for her to love before he becomes the Ogre Queen’s sacrifice.
…and a prince…
Prince Niklaas is living on borrowed time. He must convince a princess to marry him before dawn on his eighteenth birthday or meet the same terrible fate as his ten older brothers. And so Niklaas barters his most prized possession for a charm to locate the lost princess, Aurora. Instead, he finds her brother – or so he believes – and is blackmailed into helping raise an army.
Will they find their happily-ever-after?
As they race to prevent the fulfillment of an ogre prophecy foretelling the end of human life, Aurora and Niklaas learn that there are worse things than old curses. There is impossible hope and forbidden love, and there are kisses that steal like a thief in the night…
Readers will be captivated by the warrior princess Aurora in this thrilling, romantic fantasy adventure.
First Sentence: Having discovered the secret to eternal life, and jealous of his throne, the immortal king summoned a witch to the castle and ordered her to curse his eleven sons, ensuring none would live past their eighteenth birthday, the age at which a Kanvasol prince may become a king.
