What would you do if you awoke after sleeping for 62 years?  For Rose Fitzroy, she doesn’t know what to do.  Her loved ones are dead and the world has changed drastically.  It doesn’t help that an unknown entity wants to kill her.  Rose must find her place in this new world and figure out who she will love... no matter the consequences.


I’ve never been one for love stories; I’ve always loved fast-paced futuristic stories.  However, this book was an exception.  I was afraid that it was going to be a slow, boring book as soon as I started it.  I quickly found out that I was wrong.  I found myself thinking like Rose, the main character, so it was nice how I felt connected with her.  I also loved how the story was based on Sleeping Beauty but wasn’t all gushy.  The main reason I loved this book was the emotion that it brought with its story.  I found myself tearing up at quite a few parts (which I usually never do when it comes to books).  I suggest this book to everyone out there, no matter if you do or don’t like romantic stories.  You won’t be disappointed!
