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 always have misgivings about the retelling of fairy tales especially ones with Disney movies but Thorn had enough difference and divergence that I could enjoy it for it s own merits without seeing Belle bopping around in her pretty yellow dress or hearing Angela Lansbury singing in my head Three sisters anxiously await their father s return from a winter hunting trip but he s been gone longer than he said he would Rowan the eldest daughter is to be married off to Avery Lockland who is the son of one of the men her father is hunting with She knows she won t be happy with him but she doesn t have a choice Finally her father returns frozen and near death He s brought Rowan a gift a cutting of a rose The Huntress realises that one of her roses has been cut and follows the man she had mercy on to retrieve itIt s cold and bleak and the writing is very evocative of the wolves bears and pervasive icy weather The story unfolds giving pieces of information of Rowan s past and the Huntress curse Rowan s point of view is in first person so we re privy to her thoughts and what she s going through but the Huntress gets a prelude in third person in the beginning of each chapter It makes her much enigmatic and it suits the theme of the storyI enjoyed the pace the writing and the story

Cated feelings for the Huntress Rowan must find a way to break the curse before it destroys everything she loves There is only one problem―if she can find a way to lift the curse she will have to return to the life she left behind And the only thing unbearable than endless winter is facing a lifetime of springs without the Huntress. Rowan is the daughter of a merchant who unknowingly gives her a cursed rose taken during an ill fated hunting trip The rose was in a land of eternal winter inhabited by a mysterious woman called the Huntress Furious at the merchant for killing her wolves and stealing her rose the Huntress irrupts into the merchant s house and takes the rose back along with Rowan Trapped in the Huntress s realm of eternal winter and curse Rowan will have to choose between her family loyalties and her growing feelings for the HuntressFollowing my new year resolution to read books out of my comfort zone I chose a genre that I seldom read fantasy Thorn is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast In this novel according to the author bravery and not beauty defines Beauty As in her previous book Compass Rose Ms Burke is very poetic in her metaphors this time changing naval comparisons for winter ones Her depiction of the freezing landscape with its vast gamut of whites menacing beasts and dimmed sunlight acts as an ideal backdrop to this beautiful storyThis novel is written in first person from the point of view of Rowan except for a few short sections written in third person point of view from the Huntress Both main characters are well rounded and believable and the reader cannot help but feel the pain of both the Huntress as a victim of her own arrogance and Rowan as a casualty of her father s weakness Underneath lies a heavy criticism to the patriarchal system in which women are traded as goods in the name of their fathers interests and the conflict between family loyalties and a woman s search for true love A rose for a rose a thorn for a thorn With each repetition of this mantra the reader sees this phrase in a different light The tone of this novel shifts back and forth from poetic and romantic as a rose to hurting and heartbreaking as a thorn Similarly the pace changes from slow burn romance to fast paced thriller This book has been a pleasure to read and shows that Anna Burke is uickly becoming than a promising writer Overall a very good lesfic retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast A tale of suffering bravery and love conuering all 5 starsARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review See all my reviews at wwwlezreviewbookscom
