This time it's not Sleeping Beauty in a castle hidden by thorns; instead it's the son of the village blacksmith. Sand wakes up in the abandoned castle and has no idea how he got there. Worse yet, the thorns keep him from leaving. From the heights of the broken castle, he can see the village, but no one can hear him. How is he to survive?
The Castle Behind the Thorns (Katherine Tegen Books, 2014) by Merrie Haskell has magic in the story and in the telling of it.
This is the author's third book. I want to check out the others. Read about them here on her website.
