Once upon a time in a world where magic and technology collide with unexpected consequences…
Bellarosa sleeps, her previous life forgotten. As she dreams, she can but observe the world she sees in her mind and wonders if it is real. But one day, Tolliver stumbles into a tunnel leading to her resting place, and he can hear her. As she becomes part of his life, her dreams fill with budding love. But is Tolliver a figment of her imagination or a real human being? Can Bellarosa find her memories and learn the truth about her long sleep before she loses Tolliver and her own life?
What if the Brothers Grimm had taken the dreams of “Sleeping Beauty” into account?
The book includes a bonus story and the original fairy tale.
