Review:A Kiss In Time by Alex Finn

A Kiss in TimeA Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A modern day take on Sleeping Beauty. Talia, the princess, in a country (Euphrasia) that has been hidden from the modern world and forgotten in time, is awaken by Jack. She escapes her father, releases him from prison under the condition of him taking her with him - traveling far, far away - the need for the escape. Talia's character is richly developed and brings forth the richness of Jack's family, and even that of the "evil" or maybe misjudged fairy Malvolia. Although the curse is in place, Jack faces certain trails, as does Talia - again an interesting take Ms. Finn takes on this tale. The ending is of course happily ever after, and nicely done with realistic prose.
