What Once Was Mine
What Once Was Mine: A Twisted Tale | Liz Braswell
12 posts | 6 read | 1 reading | 12 to read
The 12th installment in the NYT best-selling series asks: What if Rapunzel's mother drank a potion from the wrong flower? Desperate to save the queen and her unborn child, the Corona guards seek the all-healing sundrop flower, but mistakenly acquire the glowing moondrop flower instead. It does cure the queen, and she delivers a healthy baby girl with hair as silver and gray as the moon. But soon it becomes clear that the princess's hair is dangerous. And for her safety, and the safety of the kingdom, Rapunzel is locked in a tower and put under the care of powerful goodwife, Mother Gothel. For eighteen years, Rapunzel stays locked away, knowing she must protect others from her intense power. But when she is drawn out of the only home she's ever known, she gets caught up in a quest across the kingdom with two thieves-a young woman named Gina who also happened to be raised by a goodwife, and Flynn, a rogue on the run. And Rapunzel learns that there may be more to her story, and her magical tresses, than she ever knew.

This was such a different read. It didn‘t just tell one story but two. It was interesting to see Rapunzel through a different angle. It showed more of her personality. It was truly an incredible story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A fun romp & a quick read despite a lengthy page count. Follows the traditional tale closely at first, but then spins off into new twists, characters, & cute, adventurous fun. Presented as a story within a story a la the movie The Princess Bride, the arrangement wasn't executed well & pulled me out of the story. Despite my issues with storyline interruptions, the central tale was good & easy to breeze through. An enjoyable guilty pleasure read.

KatieDid927 This is one series you can def read out of order, if you want to. I finally read As Old As Time earlier this year and it was great. I‘m excited for this one. 2y
