In the media

This was a great story, and I hope Ms Oliver will come up with new twists on fairy tales!

It should go down well with fans of fairy stories, magic, adventure and a little tame romance, and the cover will sell it without too much promotional effort

No matter how many stories it reminded me of it still stood out as unique in its own right though and it's definitely a book I'd be happy to recommend. If you like your fairytales on the dark side and are a fantasy fan then Briar Rose is definitely a book you'll enjoy!
