Sleeping Handsome // Blog Tour + Book Review

Hello friends! :) We're here today to celebrate the release of indie-author Rebekah Eddy's latest work, Sleeping Handsome.



Summary

    Minnie's goal was to have a fun, worry free vacation with her best friend Amy. A few weeks spent in their favorite far away place before they both went back to their respective colleges. A visit to the many famous sights across the British Isles has been on both their bucket lists for a very long time, after all.
    However, when a mysterious taxi driver mentions a legend that somehow concerns her ancestral heritage, she decides to dig deeper. After being accused of stealing the famous statue and tourist attraction known as Sleeping Handsome, Minnie and Amy are plunged into a world they would never have imagined existed.
    Prince Gregory, after being awakened from being frozen in stone for hundreds of years, finds himself searching for his true love in order to reverse the stone spell on his kingdom and awaken the rest of his people. With his faithful horse Brutis by his side, he sets out to destroy his greatest enemy, release his kingdom from the stone spell, and win the heart of his princess.

Review

    Minnie and Amy's European vacation is greatly interrupted when they're accused of stealing a statue...that they may or may not have accidentally awoken from a hundreds of years old curse.

    The twist on the tale of Sleeping Beauty was SO cool!! I never would have thought of this take on the traditional tale. It was very well done indeed. ;)

    I'm not really one for magic in stories. I'm not saying it's wrong to read/write magic, it's just not something I especially enjoy. Talking and flying horses, fire-breathing dragons, invisibility powers, and countries frozen in time for hundreds of years are all fine and dandy, just not my cup of tea. ;) However, I still found this story to be a cute and enjoyable read.

   All the way around, Sleeping Handsome was a comical and intriguing tale of old legends, true friendships, and finding one's true love. I greatly enjoyed taking the journey along with Minnie, Amy,  and Prince Gregory. And let's not forget Brutis. ;)

    I think readers of all age would find something to enjoy inside the pages of Sleeping Handsome. :D Four stars!

**I received a free e-book from the author in exchange for my honest review.** 



Author Bio

    Rebekah grew up surrounded by family members who appreciated and read good literature. First, she fell in love with the stories her parents read aloud to her from the Bible and books like The Chronicles of Narnia, Great Expectations, The Hobbit, and Anne of Green Gables. After learning to read on her own, she discovered other fantastic books which helped to build her ever growing imagination.
    She completed her first written work at the tender age of eight and now uses it to humble herself whenever the need arises. The story did serve to show her that God had given her a desire to write, however, and from that moment on Rebekah has never looked back or regretted picking up her pencil and becoming an author.
    This nineteen-year-old homeschool graduate lives in rainy Western Washington and is currently working on receiving her BA in English in order to further her passion for creating worlds on paper.
