Waiting on Wednesday (#288): Golden Curse by M. Lynn

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I'm featuring:

Golden Curse by M. Lynn
Book One of the True Story of Rapunzel series
Publication Date: October 5, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

A curse. A hidden identity. A dangerous love.

Ten year old Persinette Basile was forced to flee the palace of Gaule for her life.

Now at eighteen, she must find a way to return in order to obey a curse on her family line.

The prince won’t know who she is. Not anymore. But she knows him and what he will do if he discovers her true name.

Made to fight for her life to earn her place, she vows to find a way to break the curse no matter the cost.


To. The. Death. 

The words describing the tournament turn Prince Alexandre Durand’s blood to ice.

The last warrior standing will win a spot at his side.

As he's thrust onto the throne, forbidden magic, dangerous betrayals, and a complicated love could tear his reign apart. 

When the secrets begin to unravel, will Alex stay true to the laws and traditions of Gaule or will he give it all up for a woman who deceived him?

Inspired by the Rapunzel story, this is the golden-haired princess as you’ve never seen her before.

I stumbled upon this book on Goodreads and it sounds amazing! I love a good fairy tale retelling and fantasy is my jam. I'll be looking out for this one!

  6. I've never heard of this before, but it sounds fantastic! I can't remember running across any other Rapunzel retellings. Great choice Alyssa😁

  7. I tend to avoid most retellings, but this one looks really interesting! She doesn't come across as a damsel-in-distress, but like a warrior determined to prove herself. I'm going to add this one to my list. Thanks for sharing! <3
