Once upon a time, the woodsman rescued Red Riding Hood,
Hansel and Gretel cooked the gingerbread witch,
And Cinderella snagged her prince with a discarded glass slipper.
But Sleeping Beauty still sleeps in a thorn-locked castle, Snow White still lies preserved in her crystal coffin, and in a land not so far away, the Beast lives in the penthouse suite of Castle Apartments.
The Thorns Series invites you down the twisted paths of classic fairy tales, myths, and legends into dark forests, urban jungles, otherworlds, underworlds, and your very own rose-red hearts.
Series Advisory: Scenes of sexual and physical assault, violence, and torture. Because fairy tales are sometimes gruesome and grim.

Fantasy/Fairy Tale, Adult
When eccentric artist Olivia Rowe returns to the Castle to fulfill a childhood promise to its mysterious owner, Griffin, an assassination attempt against him catapults her into a world of hunters, witches, and enchantments—where fairy tales are real but happily-ever-afters are far from guaranteed.
With a rogue hunter hot on their heels, they must journey between the modern world and the last remaining magical enclaves to rescue Snow White, the Sleeping Kingdom, and Griffin himself from Bluebeard, a powerful sorcerer on a life-stealing spree to achieve immortality.
