About Princess of Tyrone
Apolline is happy hunting magical creatures on her pirate infested outer-perimeter planet. She is a fantastic shot, and doesn’t flinch at the blood and guts of her kills. Never once did she consider she could be the missing Princess of Tyrone.
All her life, she has heard the story of the Princess, cursed to sleep for eternity, unless her betrothed, the Prince of Oran, gave her true love’s kiss. Although Apolline knows she is betrothed, she thinks her fairy guardians arranged it out of ignorance of human ways. The thought she could be a princess is inconceivable.
Then Allard appears. Handsome, charming—but he’s not hers to have. He’s betrothed, too. Her guardians warn her against her new found friendship, but she and Allard meet in secret anyway. Despite her rough exterior, he sees beyond her gun-slinging bravado, and their love blossoms.
But the deadline for the sleeping curse is approaching. If Apolline falls in love with the wrong person, she could end up sleeping forever.
A quirky, adventurous retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with a less than princess-ly princess!
Reviews for Princess of Tyrone
Princess of Tyrone was a really fairy-tale retelling. I loved the way it combined both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty into one novel. I enjoyed the sci-fi/fantasy twist in this as well. It was beautiful written with amazing characters, but at the same time it was a bit predictable when it came to both the prince and the princess. I definitely want to continue with the next book.

This is a clever and futuristic re-telling of Sleeping Beauty, with minor Cinderella and Snow White aspects. More Cinderella and Snow White plot lines coming later in The Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles series!
In order to preserve peace and connect the two royal lines; a prince and princess were betrothed as babies, much to the dismay of the evil faerie, Bryanna.
Apolline, our Sleeping Beauty, grew up in secret in the enchanted woods of a planet on the outer boarder of the joint ruling kingdoms in the galaxy. She was raised by three fairies, affected by magic and has excelled in [...]
Given that this is a Sleeping Beauty retelling and has such a fantastical (and gorgeous) cover, I went into the book expecting it to be very light and airy and fairy tale-esque, like many retellings are. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was actually very modern, realistic, and relatable!
Yes, it is a sci-fi/fantasy book, so it does have fairies, dark sorceresses, magic mirrors, teleportation, etc., but the characters, the way they think and act, the relationships—those were the realistic, relatable things. And to me, that’s the perfect way of doing things because it’s all the fun of a [...]
First off that cover was the major selling point for me i just had to gaze and it in wonder of how pretty it is. Second this story was very cute and i adored reading it. I really like the uniqueness of this story telling retelling of sleeping beauty you got all the main facts from the story but twisted up in this sci-fi fantasy of planets and mystery. I also very excited as i tweeted with the author after reading to tell her i would like more of Apolline and Allard and she said they come [...]
