Hunted meets The Wrath and the Dawn in this bold fairytale retelling--where court intrigue, false identities, and dark secrets will thrill fans of classic and contemporary fantasy alike. Princess Alyrra has always longed to escape the confines of her royal life, but when her mother betroths her to a powerful prince in a distant kingdom, she has little hope for a better future. Until Alyrra arrives at her new kingdom, where a mysterious sorceress robs her of both her identity and her role as princess--and Alyrra seizes on the opportunity to start a new life for herself as a goose girl.  But as Alyrra uncovers dangerous secrets about her new world, including a threat to the prince himself, she knows she can't remain silent forever. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, Alyrra is caught between two worlds, and ultimately must decide who she is and what she stands for. Originally self-published as an ebook and now brought to life with completely revised text, Thorn also features an additional short story set in-world, The Bone Knife.… (més)

A Goose Girl retelling

Alyrra has never wanted to be a princess, and as her family constantly reminds her, she’s not very good at being one either. A betrothal to the prince of a neighbouring kingdom allows her to escape her abusive brother, but Alyrra doesn’t expect anything else than to continue being used as a pawn in political games. However, a powerful fae Lady and a spiteful and ambitious maiden change her fate forever. Now, Alyrra must choose between settling contentedly into her new life as a goose girl — a life that suits her quite well — or standing up to the Lady and reclaiming her rightful place in order to save the prince’s life.

I could relate to Alyrra’s character very well since I too am not an ambitious person and content with a simple life. I could understand her struggle of wanting to do the right thing but not wanting to give up the unexpected gift she was given, and not being sure if she can actually make a difference. I also really loved the rich detail of this world and its people, and the role that magic plays. I want more! ( )

I haven't read a fiction book so compelling in a long time. The kingdoms and characters are deeply plotted and I appreciated the way she took details from the original and made them intricately her own. She had the foresight to set up the answers to the "why's" that the original tale created.

I was worried that Shannon Hale's adaptation(which I loved) might taint my enjoyment, but it didn't. They both have distinctly different voices and cultural flavors. In some ways, this is a bit more mature in tone and less dramatic. Hale's was less about social ills and more about defeating the enemy. Both, I believe, are stories worth telling. And I loved the reveal at the end.

It was long. My paperback was 460 pages and I couldn't help wondering if there was a way to split some of it into a sequel or the companion novel. At times in the middle I forgot the main arc but was then jolted back into it by one of the visits. And it's definitely not for the young. There is quite a lot of violence here. It was still an intriguing journey though. ( )
