A review by fictionaladventures
Briarheart, by Mercedes Lackey
This was a really sweet story, but it wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. I had expectations of a powerful YA story about Sleeping Beauty’s fierce sister. Instead, I got a cutesy middle grade about a girl with magic whose sister has vague similarities to Sleeping Beauty, but it definitely doesn’t feel like a Sleeping Beauty retelling. If you go into this wanting a cute middle grade, you have more of a chance of enjoying it than I did!
