Not every princess trapped in a tower should be let out

T Kingfisher's Thornhedge is a fantastic fairy tale turned on its head.

I would hate to spoil even a moment of this fantastic but too short, fairy tale. This T Kingfisher story has a lightness to it and is filled with enough innocent hope to brighten the day after reading it. It's a perfect quick read for a lazy afternoon.

There's a princess trapped in a tower. This isn't her story.

Meet Toadling. On the day of her birth, she was stolen from her family by the fairies, but she grew up safe and loved in the warm waters of faerieland. Once an adult though, the fae ask a favor of Toadling: return to the human world and offer a blessing of protection to a newborn child. Simple, right?

But nothing with fairies is ever simple.

Centuries later, a knight approaches a towering wall of brambles, where the thorns are as thick as your arm and as sharp as swords. He's heard there's a curse here that needs breaking, but it's a curse Toadling will do anything to uphold…
