Summary

Before her death in July 1997, beloved lesbian-feminist author Chris Anne Wolfe published two of her four classic Amazon adventure novels - Shadows of Aggar and Fires of Aggar. These two volumes are only the first half of the Aggar cycle. Chris Anne also published two stand-alone novels, the time-bending romance, Annabel and I, and the retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Roses and Thorns.
The manuscripts of Chris Anne's remaining novels, short stories, poetry, and songs were willed to publisher and friend, Jennifer DiMarco. These hand-written volumes include both remaining Aggar books - Sands of Aggar and Oceans of Aggar - and more than a dozen retold fairy tales and original fantasy and contemporary novels. In 2012, with Rebecca Fitzgerald and Skye Montague, DiMarco launched Amazons Unite, a publishing house dedicated exclusively to Chris Anne's work.
About Roses & Thorns:
A greedy father. A beautiful daughter. A faceless noble. With a word, Aloysius bargains away Angelique's future for a hefty bride-price, and no one, not even Angelique's beloved mother, can save her.

Critic reviews

"No author could have retold Beauty and the Beast as beautifully as Chris Anne Wolfe. She entices you throughout the story, making your heart pound with each second. At the end, you believe magic is afoot and love is as near to you as your dreams." (Heather Cassell, Bay Area Reporter)
"Wolfe tells the story with a great deal of magic. Amidst fog and darkness and springing white steeds is just about everything a fantasy fan could want: shifting realities of time and space, protective spells, eternal curses, and more." (Lee Lynch, LN)

My 1st time read in this genre was enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

I am always game to read something new in my quest to find good stories and this one in this particular genre was recommended by a friend and I am glad I gave it a go. The story is rich in detail and a unique take on this famous fairy-tale. Taking on how personal perceptions are not always about how you look on the outside but how you see yourself on the inside made it compelling.

I also enjoyed the reader and how she brought the book to life. Her voice was pleasant to hear as she told the tale and I was easily able to follow and imagine the characters and story in my head as I went about my daily business. She hit all the right points in the story's action and I found myself enveloped in the tale because of it.

This was definately a nice book to be recommended and I would highly recommend this to anyone. :)

Narrator was terrible

The narration was terrible but if you stick out her monotonous lack of inflection and emotion garbage voice the story is actually pretty sweet. A little rudimentary, but the lesbian twist of the beauty and the beast story was nice.
