A tower covered in vines could unravel the past.
Charul Shazad, the international teenage heartthrob, is one of the youngest time travelers at the International Time Travel Agency. But, when he loses the trail of an illegal time traveler, both history and his career are put on the line. Unwilling to lose everything, Charul decides to take on the dangerous renegade alone. But, when he finds himself marooned beneath the shadow of a vine-covered castle, he can't help but wonder if he'll ever make it back to his old life.
Fleur de Doue was never meant to exist, at least that's what the Mirror tells her. To protect her place in the world, Fleur helps surround her castle in wires and brambles. But when a secretive boy from the future arrives, Fleur wonders if the time traveling Mirror is really the hero he claims to be.
Working together, can they uncover the truth?
"Huffmire creates an entirely original time travel adventure and fairytale that brings something new to the table. Spinning Briar breathes new life into the fairytale genre."
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!
