Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close. And then everything changes with a single drop of Aurora's blood--and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken. As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen. Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls: and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay. Spindle Fire is a lush fantasy set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.

a very good book. it and its sequel are excellent

This retelling of Sleeping Beauty has a bit of a Frozen vibe with the two sisters, Aurora and Isabelle, as well as the earlier estranged faerie sisters, Belcoeur and Malfleur. It is a happy circumstance that I can move directly to the sequel. Looking forward to seeing if Aurora and Isabelle are able to live happily ever after and free themselves from the fae magic affecting their kingdom.

I liked the idea of the story but I didn't fall for it like I expected to. I love fairy tale retellings but I couldn't get hooked on this one. I did like the backstory of the evil fairy twin sisters. I will read the next book, I need to know how it ends.
