Review: The Forgotten Sister

31221896 The Forgotten Sister by Dalila Caryn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Left motherless at birth, the infant Rowan becomes the object of her grandmother's grief-and devastating curse. She grows up with the knowledge that the one she loves most-her sister, Roisin-is fated to be killed. Trapped halfway between being a human and a fairy, in a realm where she doesn't belong, Rowan must find a way to create a family, discover her powers, protect her sister, and save the young daughters of her land.

Against all odds, Rowan trains to become a powerful knight and leader of the Knights of the Rose. Along the way, she evolves into the woman and ruler she's destined to become-a ruler whose powers are infused not just with magic but with fierce loyalty too. Yet the life she's created threatens to come crashing down when she discovers a crushing betrayal by someone close to her.

The Forgotten Sister is a sweeping story of family, heroism, and the magical powers that can save-or destroy-a kingdom.

*I received a copy from the author for review. This does not affect my review.*

I loved this story! It was fun reading this retelling of Sleeping Beauty where she (Roisin), has a sister named Rowan. The story it told from Rowan's point of view. As she trains to be a knight and protect her sister, she starts to resent her role. I loved the twist on an old classic, and really enjoyed the writing style and characters in this story. If I can find one fault, it would be the ending. It ended very abruptly, and left some things open. I'm hoping that means there is possibly more to come?
