Spinning Briar

Being an International Time Travel Agent requires absolute obedience. The smallest change in history could completely destroy the present.

When Charul Shazad loses the trail of the Mirror, a time-traveling vigilante, both history and his career are put on the line. Unwilling to lose everything, Charul takes on the dangerous renegade alone and finds himself marooned in a forgotten forest. But Charul isn’t one to give up. Could the vine covered castle in the distance hold the secret to capturing the Mirror once and for all?

Dorothea Wild is the Mirror's newest right-hand programmer. After spending forty years in a high-security ITTA prison cell, accepting the renegade's job offer was an easy decision. But, saving people in the past isn't all she wants. A big enough mission could undermine the authority of ITTA, allowing her sweet retribution on the company that ruined her life.

Fleur de Doue was never meant to exist, at least that's what the Mirror's assistants tell her. To avoid being erased from history, she helps the Mirror surround her castle in wires and brambles. But, just because the Mirror enabled her birth doesn't mean he has the right to control her fate. Could it be that he made a mistake and Fleur doesn't belong in the past?

Rachel Huffmire's fairy tale retellings contain the best from the original stories, refreshing new and characters, and incredible twists! I always start expecting to know how it will go, and I end up totally amazed and in love with the world and the characters she creates. Romance is usually front and center in fairy tales, but Shattered Snow and Spinning Briar seamlessly meld the romance in with the action so you totally ship the characters without being annoyed with overdone tropes. Another excellent installment in this series, I can't wait for the next book!

This book holds its own as a fantastic and well-written time travel book, as well as holds its own as a terrific and unique fairy tale retelling. Neither of those are small feats—and to have both rolled into one book? Pretty awesome. I recommend this one, for sure!

-Courtney, Amazon reviewer

This is such a creative take on a Sleeping Beauty retelling and if you love scifi, you will LOVE this book! Rachel Huffmire is so talented with creating a believable future time travel system, just like she did with Book 1 in the series, Shattered Snow. I love the new characters in this book and the romantic plot, which does not overpower the main plot. This is a clean read, appropriate for teens and enjoyable for adults!
