Briarheart, by Mercedes Lackey


This was so much fun. I love fairy tale retellings with a twist and having the main character be not the sleeping beauty character but the stepsister who discovers she has magic was so interesting. I really enjoyed the arc of the characters, especially Miriam, and I really appreciated that there wasn't an evil stepfather kind of situation. Really enjoyed the world. A standalone fantasy I can definitely see myself recommending.
