Hello hello! I know this isn’t my usual Friday post, but I’ve been in a bit of a slump recently, both with my blogging in general and logging on to read others posts. I’m hoping that a few days off will give me the break I need, and I’m hoping to be back with my usual schedule next week. In the meantime though, I just received an ARC for one of my most anticipated reads of the year and I just had to share the first line with you all.
“Once upon a time, on the coldest night of midwinter, in the darkest heart of the forest, Death and Fortune came to a crossroads.”
Intriguing right? I’ve been eager to get my hands on a copy of this since it was announced & I jumped with joy when my Netgalley approval came through. Ready to find out what it is?
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful, kind princess who was betrothed to the prince of a faraway kingdom. When she set off for her new home, her mother gave her a maid for a companion on the journey.
But instead of serving the princess, the wicked maid stole her place.
For a year the true princess toiled away like a common goose girl, while the wicked maid lived high in the palace, fooling the kingdom. But the truth came out. The princess took back her name, her crown, and her husband, and the imposter died for her crimes.
Then one day, the wicked maid…
…told her own story.
