Princess Elena is determined to find a cure for the sleeping curse that will activate on her eighteenth birthday—preferably one that doesn’t involve waiting a hundred years for a prince to wake her up. But with the deadline a year away and no results, what’s a princess to do?
For most princesses, a sleeping curse means a few inconvenient weeks unconscious and a happily-ever-after with their true love. Elena’s curse, however, was designed without a cure, which means that she’s getting a century-long nap for her eighteenth birthday whether she wants it or not. After years of study she’s still no closer to finding a cure, even with the help of an undead godfather and an enchanted-mirror turned therapist. And with only a year until the deadline she’s learned to accept her fate.
Sadly, there’s one prince who doesn’t seem to have gotten the memo and who’s continually trying to activate the curse so he can be the one to wake her up again. Only slightly less annoying is Cam, her new bodyguard and former childhood acquaintance who disagrees with Elena at pretty much every turn. When the curse threatens to come early, however, they both realize that fate is a lot more complicated than they’d ever imagined.
