~*~ Review ~*~ Gathering Frost (Once Upon A Curse #1) by Kaitlyn Davis

Gathering Frost (Once Upon A Curse #1)

Will his kiss be enough to revive her frozen heart?

Once Upon A Time meets La Femme Nikita in GATHERING FROST, a dystopian romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Sleeping Beauty.

Jade was only a little girl when the earthquake struck. Before her eyes, half of New York City disappeared, replaced by a village that seemed torn out of a storybook. Horses and carriages. Cobblestone streets. A towering castle. And, above all, a queen with the magical ability to strip emotions away.

Ten years later and Jade has forgotten what it is to feel, to care…even to love. Working as a member of the queen’s guard, she spends most of her time on the city wall staring at the crumbling skyscrapers of old New York. But everything changes when the queen’s runaway son, Prince Asher, returns. Jade is tasked with an unusual mission–to let the Prince capture her, to make him trust her, and then to betray his secrets to the crown. In return, she’ll earn her freedom. But life outside the queen’s realm is more than Jade bargained for. Under Asher’s relentless taunts, her blood begins to boil. Under his piercing gaze, her heart begins to flutter. And the more her icy soul begins to thaw, the more Jade comes to question everything she’s ever known–and, more importantly, whose side she’s really on.


My Review:

Firstly I would like to thank the lovely author and NetGalley for kindly approving me to have a copy to read and review, I’ve read previous storied by Davis and was intrigued by the blurb/cover of this one

What would you do if your world turn upside down? And I mean literally?

Would you be able to cope being thrust into a world long forgotten?

Well this is the story of Jade, and her turn of events after an earth shattering earthquake hits central New York City!

Being frozen Jade gets involved in the Queen’s guard and as she’s the only female to do this, we can tell she’s kick-ass and a potential strong-willed character
Being a member of this army and a citizen of this community she feels nothing, as with everybody else in the kingdom.
No joy,
no anger,
no jealousy,
no love
After being captured by a band of Rebels, Jade must escape and then complete her mission, nothing could possibly go wrong right?
In walks the delectable Asher…..YUMMY!
There are plenty of obstacles and hurdles for these two “love-birds” to get through to make their story intriguing. Jade mission is to deceive Asher, but at what point does she stop, if ever?
Or is she only deceiving herself?
The background and story was super unique and well written. I loved the mixture of medieval/modern world. It was a beautifully written tale of “Sleeping Beauty” with a modern twist!
I think it was brilliant on how it ends to open up for the next book which is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
I for one can’t wait.
