If I Die Before I Wake - Not All Tales Have the Ever-After You Might Expect
Not all tales have the ever-after you might expect.
'An edgy fairy-tale set in the 21st century. A fantastical and fun read.'
-Yvonne Mes, Author and Vice President of Book Links QLD
Vreni is fifteen and cursed. The curse was placed on her grandmother centuries ago and has been passed down through the women in her family, so Vreni has slept and woken at the whim of the curse since her birth over a century ago. She is kept isolated from the world by her reclusive family, and yearns for a normal life- shopping, boys, even just being allowed to go to school. Her family grant her wish to spend a day in the city and her sheltered, predictable life unravels.
To ensure her family's safety, Vreni has been asked by their magical guardians, to join then, and learn the secrets of their magic, and face their family's evil enemies so that she can help them retrieve the last few drops of the sleeping potion from the evil alchemists who created it. If they possess these last drops they can create an antidote that will set Vreni and her family free from the curse.
