Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follows a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.

Should being the keyword.

Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that? 

All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that--if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.

But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.


Well, apparently I love anything that Christina Bauer writes. :) Angelbound is one of my all time favorites, I love Alien Minds series and I now discovered Wolves and Roses. 

The best part of is the premise of fairytale templates, that the magical races have to follow, it's a very unique concept. The mythology intertwines with fairytale stories all set in a modern world. 

Bryar Rose is living with three fairy godmother and has to follow the sleeping beauty template. She has time till her 18th birthday to fulfill, otherwise, she will be just a human. It's not all nice though, she falls asleep often and lives very isolated live. However, she has a secret. Away from fairies and all that world, she is a hacker. With her best friend, they use their skills to break the law in the night. :)

One one of such night she runs into the son of the owner of the building she is about to rob. But instead of calling the police, he invites her to join him and his friends on a mission to recover The Book Of Magic. 

I just loved it! All the characters just jump from the pages and the romance it's so nice. :) My favorite part was the ending,  totally unexpected twist... :)

Highly recommend it!

Happy reading,
