Blog Tour | Withering Rose by Kaitlyn Davis

 Withering Rose (Once Upon a Curse #2)
Genre: YA Fantasy/Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: May 17th 2016


 **A USA Today Recommended Series!**

What if Beauty was cursed, and the Beast was the only one who could save her? Don't miss WITHERING ROSE, a dystopian romance from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis that reimagines the classic fairy tale of Beauty & The Beast. This is the second book in Once Upon A Curse, a series of interconnected stand-alone novels all set in the same fantasy universe.

"As the heat finally disappeared, I felt the bloom blossom in the very core of my soul, a rose just like my name—a ticking clock hidden behind a façade of beauty. From that moment on, my life would become a countdown, and all I could do was wait and watch as the petals of time slowly started to fall."

Omorose Bouchene has a secret—magic. There's only one problem. At the age of seven, an earthquake struck, catapulting her into a new world. A land made of skyscrapers and cell phones. Fast cars and fluorescent lights. A land where magic isn't supposed to exist and anyone who wields it is the enemy.

But after ten years of hiding, she's desperate to find a place where she can be free. Because all magic comes with a curse, and her curse is time—every ounce of power she uses strips days off of her life. The clock is winding down, and the only option left is to escape to the realm ruled by a man known only as the Beast. But the king of monsters isn’t what he seems. And the more Omorose opens her heart, the more she comes to realize that the only person she may need to fear is herself.

RAVE REVIEWS for Gathering Frost!

"My favorite thing about this book is the action. Jade isn't a sleeping princess. She's the best fighter and so fierce in her "empty" state. I felt like this was an urban fantasy with all the steam of a romance, and it was almost perfect for me." - Jessie Potts, USA TODAY Happy Ever After Blog

"Davis writes with confidence and poise, and the story's many twists and turns stave off predictability and allow readers to become immersed in a starkly magical world filled with last hopes." - Publisher's Weekly

"Gathering Frost is just awesome in every wayBeautiful prose, lots of heart-wrenching emotion, action and romance, a great, unstoppable villain, and a smart, tough heroine who will fight for what she wants." - Geeks in High School

"The writing is flawless as always and I must say, way to take a classic and make such a creative and wonderful twist to it...It's well thought out and it unbelievably magnificent. I seriously couldn't put it down. Wait I never actually put it down. I started and finished in one sitting because it's just that good. This one is a MUST READ." - Happy Tails and Tales Blog

The Fairy Tale World I'd Love To Live In Is…

One of my favorite things about writing and reading is the chance to experience new worlds! Nothing excites me more than diving into a new novel and living vicariously through the characters for a few hours.

I mean, let's be honest. What's more fun—cooking dinner for the umpteenth time or pretending to be a fire wielding sorceress falling in love with a werewolf while on the hunt for a dangerous new evil? If your answer isn't number two, I'm not sure you're in the right place! ;)

So, since my new book Withering Rose is a twisted take on Beauty & The Beast and the entire Once Upon A Curse series retells classic fairy tales, I figured I'd indulge a little. After all, I frequently spend the afternoon daydreaming—why not daydream about fairy tales? There's a little bit of everything I need—charming princes, evil queens, wondrous magic, swoony romance…did I mention charming princes?

Let's narrow it down. First, I'm speaking Disney tales with happily ever afters! While I love writing twisted takes on the originals, the gruesome direction they often travel in is more the thing of my nightmares!

With that base, I'm going into a top three!

Tangled—because, hello, Flynn Rider. Every girl needs a Flynn Rider. And the lantern ceremony at the end is so incredibly beautiful I would love to visit for the day of the festival and partake! 

Beauty & The Beast—Books, books, and more books! The library of my dreams! Not to mention amazing French pastries, dances beneath a blanket of stars, and the brooding beast himself.

Aladdin—The best magic! Who wouldn't want to ride the flying carpet around the world while being serenaded by a charming thief with a heart of gold? Or have a pet tiger—amazing! Or a genie as a best friend. Really, the list goes on and on!

So…the time has come. I choose…drumroll please…

Beauty & The Beast! My book nerd nature wins out :)
