Cover Reveal | Princess of Tyrone Cover

Princess of Tyrone (Fairytale Galaxy, #1) by Katie Hamstead
Release Date: March 31st, 2016
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Genres: Space Opera, Sci-Fi, Fantasy
Apolline is happy hunting magical creatures on her pirate infested outer-perimeter planet. She is a fantastic shot, and doesn’t flinch at the blood and guts of her kills. Never once did she consider she could be the missing Princess of Tyrone.

All her life, she has heard the story of the Princess, cursed to sleep for eternity, unless her betrothed, the Prince of Oran, gave her true love’s kiss. Although Apolline knows she is betrothed, she thinks her fairy guardians arranged it out of ignorance of human ways. The thought she could be a princess is inconceivable.

Then Allard appears. Handsome, charming—but he’s not hers to have. He’s betrothed, too. Her guardians warn her against her new found friendship, but she and Allard meet in secret anyway. Despite her rough exterior, he sees beyond her gun-slinging bravado, and their love blossoms.

But the deadline for the sleeping curse is approaching. If Apolline falls in love with the wrong person, she could end up sleeping forever.

A quirky, adventurous retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with a less than princess-ly princess!

WOOHOO! Today, I'm going to share the cover of a new retelling of Sleeping Beauty, written by Katie Hamstead. 

As you can see from the blurb, it's not just some other retelling, it's a very BADASS retelling with ANTIMAINSTREAM plot and BADASS HEROINE! How awesome is that! You know how I feel about retellings, especially after finishing The Lunar Chronicles, I can't wait to get my hands on this book! And oh! It has a very PRETTY cover, did I tell you? I judge a book by its cover and this book has already surpassed my standard.

Whoops, what? I haven't shown you the pretty little cover? Sorry, my bad. Okay, so... here goes awesomeness.

What do you think? It's VERY beautiful, right? I know at once that I HAVE TO read this. 

My first reaction when I got this in my e-mail was

In case you haven't noticed, it's the first book in A SERIES OF RETELLINGS. Which means, there will be many more books of RETELLINGS!! How did I know this? Just look at the title! It's called Fairytale Galaxy for a reason, right? I know, I'm so smart.

So, make sure you read this book once it comes out because I bet it'll be awesome! Why? Because I have a good feeling about this. And I'd just LOVE to have this book on my shelf.
