Publisher's Summary

Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy, yet she is cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and to free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora's throne 10 years ago.
Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it's too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise keep them from ever finding their one true love?

Very entertaining!

Fun story! I didn't want it to end. It was a well written adventure/love story.

Aurora is "fairy blessed", and is much more a soldier than a princess, off on a quest to save her brother and her people. In fact, Aurora is so much more like a soldier that she dresses as a boy to disguise herself.
Niklaas has a curse of his own, and they join together on a quest that takes them through dangerous territory and through dangerous battles.
On the road to save a kingdom, will they also save each other?

Things I loved about this book: Soul eating Ogres, fairy magic, seers, Ogre eating trees... so much awesome magic in the background!

What I didn't love:
Its just a bit heavier on the romance and the swooning than I'd prefer. I'd prefer a little more soul eating ogre and a little less he loves me he loves me not, but that's my own preference.

Overall, I found the book enjoyable and give it a solid 3 stars.
