Nora Barr’s struggling law practice gets a boost when she meets a tall, dark, and handsome stranger who has a snake wrapped around his arm and a short sidekick with a mean mouth.
The stranger claims to have custody of Sleeping Beauty, and he needs Nora’s help to protect her. Against her better judgment, Nora agrees—and her life changes forever. The inspiration for Rusch’s novel, Utterly Charming, written under her pen name Kristine Grayson, this fractured fairy tale won France’s prestigious fantasy award, Le Prix Imaginales.
“The Strangeness of the Day,” by New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only.
