Briar Girls

We rated this book:


Lena has always lived in isolation, constantly fearful of her own power: her touch can kill. But after a horrible accident occurs, she and her father are forced to flee their small village to the edge of the Silence. One night, Miranda emerges from the Silence and tells Lena that she’s on a quest to wake a sleeping princess who may free the Gather of its evil ruler. If Lena will help her wake the sleeping princess, Miranda will help break Lena’s curse. All Lena has ever wanted is to be free of that curse, so she delves into the Silence with Miranda. But the deeper in she goes, the more horrible truths come to light—some she wishes had just stayed buried.

This book was entertaining and sharp, full of twists and turns on every page. Lena is easily relatable and fun to read about. With lots of emotion and twists woven into this bewitching fairy tale, it isn’t one anyone should miss! I would recommend this to any young adult or teenager looking for a dark, twisting fairy tale with interesting, well-developed characters and a great storyline!
