If Briar Rose can’t find a suitable prince to kiss her awake in her own ancient time, can she find one in modern-day Central Park? The 13th Faery—who cursed the girl in the first place—lures the right man to Rose’s side. There the Faery discovers that oldest of lessons: You can lead a prince to a princess, but you can’t make him kiss her. With bonus story "The Greening," by Claire Crow.
