A Kiss in Timebrings two worlds clashing together: the medieval world of Talia Aurora, better known as sleeping beauty, and the modern world of Jack, the "prince" who awakens her. When Talia pricks her finger on a spindle and then is awakened by a strangely dressed man, she must learn how to get by in this new century - and get her prince to actually fall in love with her. All this while fighting off the evil Malvolia's continued influence. Could things get more complicated? Of course they can.
Things I Liked:
I thought this was a really fun idea - having the princess sleep for 300 years and wake up in a totally new world. Jack and Talia were both very interesting and pretty believable characters. I also really liked seeing exactly why Malvolia was so malevolent. Nothing like a complex villain to make a story more interesting.
Things I Didn't Like:
I'm not exactly sure why, but I didn't love this book. Nothing sticks out to me as being wrong with it, I just felt kind of blah about it. Cute story, neat ending, I guess nothing terribly remarkable.
Other fairy tale books:
My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison (modern day twist too)
Beast by Donna Jo Napoli
Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
also sort of reminded me of Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris
BOOK CONTENT RATINGS:
a few scattered throughout
maybe a little boy humor and kissing, not much
Overall rating: ***
