    Inhaltsangabe

    A princess isn’t supposed to fall for an evil sorceress. But in this “bewitching and fascinating” (Tamora Pierce) retelling of “Sleeping Beauty”, true love is more than a simple fairy tale.

    “Walter’s spellbinding debut is for all the queer girls and women who’ve been told to keep their gifts hidden and for those yearning to defy gravity.” (O: The Oprah Magazine)

    Once upon a time, there was a wicked fairy who, in an act of vengeance, cursed a line of princesses to die. A curse that could only be broken by true love’s kiss.

    You’ve heard this before, haven’t you? The handsome prince. The happily ever after.

    Utter nonsense.

    Let me tell you, no one in Briar actually cares about what happens to its princesses. Not the way they care about their jewels and elaborate parties and charm-granting elixirs. I thought I didn’t care, either.

    Until I met her.

    Princess Aurora. The last heir to Briar’s throne. Kind. Gracious. The future queen her realm needs. One who isn’t bothered that I am Alyce, the Dark Grace, abhorred and feared for the mysterious dark magic that runs in my veins. Humiliated and shamed by the same nobles who pay me to bottle hexes and then brand me a monster. Aurora says I should be proud of my gifts. That she...cares for me. Even though a power like mine was responsible for her curse.

    But with less than a year until that curse will kill her, any future I might see with Aurora is swiftly disintegrating - and she can’t stand to kiss yet another insipid prince. I want to help her. If my power began her curse, perhaps it’s what can lift it. Perhaps together we could forge a new world.

    Nonsense again. Because we all know how this story ends, don’t we? Aurora is the beautiful princess. And I - 

    I am the villain.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “The villain takes center stage in Walter’s superlative debut, a refreshing spin on Sleeping Beauty.... Fairy tale lovers of all ages will be thrilled.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

    “A truly original and clever retelling of a classic that had me racing to the end - you’ll never look at ‘Sleeping Beauty’ the same way again.” (S. A. Chakraborty, author of the best-selling Daevabad trilogy) 

    “Absolutely dazzling! Full of love, power, and betrayal, Malice is as compelling as a spell, as captivating as an enchantment, and as fascinating and delicious as a fairy-tale curse. I loved it!” (Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of the Queens of Renthia series)

    A re-telling I can get behind

    Don't know what I expected when I started this after the internet had bullied me into buying it. But what I found was a lovely-paced book with great writing and character building. The main character dances between hero and villain throughout the book and her inner struggles are very well portrayed as a reader you really feel for her. If she's angry you understand why and when she is happy you feel it too. I loved the romance and thought the buildup of their relationship was very well done. Some plot twists I guessed before they happened but others I didn't and even if I did, it was still interesting to see how they played out. Can recommend it to anyone who likes queer fiction and/or fairytale retellings. Lots of fun!
