If you have ever wanted to see what a true Ice ueen is like look no further than Thorn by Anna Burke You will find the ultimate of Ice ueens in the pages of this novelThorn is a retelling of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast with a WLW slant to it The Beast in this tale is a stunningly beautiful but cold and cruel Huntress who has been cursed to live in perpetual winter All of her companions were turned into hunting animals and she has roamed her lands for untold number of years hunting with them That all changes when Rowan s father makes a terrible mistake and Rowan the tale s Beauty pays the price and becomes entangled in the curseI have always loved fairy tales and this is one of my favorites This retelling is a rather dark version of the story and fits in perfectly with the setting and the characters I am in awe of Ms Burke s descriptions in the story She makes these characters and the setting real From the colors of the winter scenes the feel of the ice snow and wind the sounds of the wind howling and the voices in those howls the smell of the stew cooking over a wood fire the feel of the furs on the bed etc These vivid descriptions make the story real I felt as though I was right there Another brilliant part of the story is when we get to see bits of the Huntress and Rowan s thoughts in their own words usually in a flashback moment It was amazing how the words of the Huntress could send cold chills up my spine and I could feel the longing and sadness in Rowan s thoughts All of this adds up to a beautifully written absolutely gorgeous novel that I m sure you will not want to missThanks to Bywater Books for allowing me to read this book for an honest review

Thorn AUTHOR Anna Burke

On a cold day deep in the heart of winter Rowan’s father returns from an ill fated hunting trip bearing a single white rose The rose is followed by the Huntress a figure out of legend Tall cruel and achingly beautiful she brings Rowan back with her to a mountain fastness populated solely by the creatures of the hunt Rowan who once. 425 Stars Now that the holidays have calmed down some I can finally get back to reading I m still working on reading some books that were published in 19 before the year is over I decided to read my first Anna Burke book Since I will be reading her new book next month a Sapphic Robin Hood I mean how awesome is that I can t wait so I decided to read Thorn now to get a feel for her writing style I m happy to say that I really enjoyed this I m a big fan of fairytale retellings so a Sapphic Beauty and the Beast retelling felt right up my alley While I have read uite a few retellings I can t seem to remember reading another B and the B retelling before so that was another reason I was hopeful for this However I was the age of 9 when Disney s Beauty and the Beast came out It was a big deal for me and I think my mother might have loved that movie even than I did since we watched it enough B and the B has a strong place in my heart so while I was excited to read this I was a little wary about how this would hold up I m glad I had nothing to worry about and that it was everything I was hoping forThis is a darker version or B and the B although the Disney version is a little dark towards the end anyway This had a darker theme through it but it didn t make the story feel heavy or depressing The Beast was an enchanted woman who is Mistress of the Hunt I won t give anything away but she is scary and a badass so when Rowen s father makes a terrible mistake it is Rowan who must pay the ultimate price Since this is WLW there is a romance of course It plays out well for the circumstances and the characters do have chemistry together The sex scenes are fade to black but nothing was taken away from the intimacy the characters shared I m so used to the Disney B and the B that a sex scene in this book might have messed with my head anyway If you are a fan of fairytale retellings this story should be in your collection It is well imagined enough that it feels plenty new why still holding on to some of the magic from the original story Burke s writing is top notch and it makes me even excited to read her new book Nottingham The True Story of Robyn Hood

review Thorn AUTHOR Anna Burke

Scorned the villagers for their superstitions now finds herself at the heart of a curse with roots as deep as the mountains ruled by an old magic that is as insidious as the touch of the winter rose Torn between her family loyalties her guilty relief at escaping her betrothal to the charming but arrogant Avery Lockland and her compli. I m not a fan of fairy tales but surprisingly I liked this one It is retelling of Beauty and the beast and author did a great job35

    To be honest I was fully prepared to not like this book since Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie and I was worried about the story getting butchered Turns out all my worrying was for nothing because Anna Burke took the movie's concept and completely made it her own In fact I think I actually prefer her version of why the Huntress got cursed in the first place It just made so much senseIf you're a fan of Be
