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 follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.

Should being the key word.

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.

Bryar Rose is a descendant of the Magicorum, one of the three magical races (shifters, fairies, witches/wizards). Everyone who is Magicorum follows one of the fairy tale life templates. Bryar Rose's template is the sleeping beauty. She lives with three fairy aunties, and she has a sleeping disease, but in reality, she is nowhere near what she should be. So she is in magical therapy run by the Denari.

Her life growing up was very sheltered, she never went to normal school or take normal classes. Now her aunties are pushing her to get married to her fake boyfriend, who she can't stand, Philpot.

She and her best friend Elle tend to run schemes and cons. Elle is interested in returning the stolen jewels, but Bryar Rose is more interested in the papyrus the guys collect. One time she goes without Elle, she gets busted. There is meets Knox. He is a powerful werewolf and the guy she has been dreaming of.

As her birthday approaches, her life gets turned upside down.

It's a fast-paced story, with a new twist after every corner. It's seriously so good!

got the audiobook on Netgalley, all thoughts are my own
