Product Description

2015…

All her life, Myra Farrow has been obsessed with medieval castles—and the kings and princes who once inhabited them. Now, wealthy videogame designer Steve Bernard wants her to model for a princess character in his new game. Myra can’t resist his offer, especially when she learns that Steve plans to film inside the mysterious Hue Castle—a cursed, barren, colorless place forbidden to visitors for centuries. But unknown to Myra, her soul is bound to Hue Castle by blood and sorcery. When she enters its doors, she awakens dark powers that will reach through time—stealing her past, torturing her present, and rewriting her future.

1415…

Edward Hue, the last of the Hue royal bloodline, has never stood in the sunshine or held a living flower. Cursed from birth to live in darkness and bring death to all he touches, he is at the mercy of his cruel, tyrannical father, who will not rest until he shatters Edward’s soul and makes his son into a diabolical copy of himself. Edward’s one hope is the mysterious woman who haunts his dreams—who will either break his curse and bring him out of the darkness, or destroy him utterly.

For Myra and Edward, past and future collide in a tale of love, obsession, betrayal, and the hope for redemption.

***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
***Contains graphic sex and language. Not for young readers***
***Cassandra Delorie #NerdGirlLola’s Review***

First and foremost, this book does end in a cliffhanger, just putting that out there.

Myra, constantly stuck in her own fantasies, finally meets the Prince she’s been looking for all her life, only to find out he lived 600 years ago. Edward, cursed by his ancestor’s misdeeds, is plagued by dreams of a mysterious woman. The story follows both of them as they try to figure out the origins of the curse and how to break it.

This book is amazing!!! The whole mystery surrounding the Hue Castle and its former occupants is a story in itself. It’s like a story inside a story. This is the first Fantasy novel I’ve read in a while and I loved it. I know this is going to sound weird but I kind of got a Beauty and the Beast vibe while reading it. Cursed castle, cursed Prince, beautiful young woman who may or may not be the one to break the spell, just saying.

I especially loved all the detail that went in to the curse and the background of how it came to be. It’s not fully explained how the curse was implemented, but we learn about the curse from both sides of the time frame, both stories are a little different depending on who is doing the telling.
The story does get a little dark in regards to Edward’s father, nothing too graphic but somethings are implied like: violence against women, rape, torture, and murder. This is just a small part of the book and to me is overshadowed by the overall story.

Honestly, I can’t wait till the 2nd book comes out. I really need to know how this story ends.

In a combination of modern day and ancient times we are able to witness the coming together of two people that were literally meant for each other across time and space. But a little warning for the younger audience that this book is not completely appropriate.
With that out of the way let me tell you a bit about it!

Myra is a blogger who does reviews and information about popular castles across Europe. There has always been one castle she has always wanted to go to but it has been closed off to all people for almost 200 years. There is rumour of a curse lying on it.
Now Myra might have a chance to live her dream when he parents try to force her to marry the boy next door. Myra only just met the man, who turns out to be gay but hasn't told his parents, but the two quickly become friends and he makes her an offer.
Despite being rich he develops games and wants Myra to model for his next character. The bonus to this is that they will be filming the scenes for the game inside of the famous and sealed off castle. Myra agrees of course, excited to finally live her dream!
Meanwhile, centuries in the past, Edward is the prince living in the cursed castle. His father, a cruel and abusive man, is about to force him to choose a bride at his coming party. Edward tries his best not to become like his father but can feel reality slipping as he lives eternity alone.
In his dreams he sees a girl who he knows is meant for him. But for all his trying he has never been able to find her.
Will his dream girl finally step out of the world of the future to find him in a world of the past? When she does nothing will be as they expected.

A great book with a great writing style. I love the way the characters interact and the resistance they have to obeying their parents wishes.
Certainly worth a read if you get the chance!

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

Let me start this off by saying, that if you haven't discovered Samreen yet, YOU my friend are missing out. I read the blurb for this book and was intrigued. It has princes, castles, mysteries, witches, etc... It also has a plot line that jumps from the 1415 to 2015. I have only read one other book like that, and that book captured me as well.

This book starts off by us getting to know Myra. She loves the way that gentlemen treated ladies with chivalry back in the 1400's. The castles, the Kings and Queens, everything. She wanted to be immersed into it. Now only if she could find a guy that is like the knights in the books that she reads.

Edward is the next in line for the crown. As the Son of King Stefan, he is the next to take his place. But only if he can be exactly like King Stefan. He doesn't want that, he wants his freedom and to find love.

When Myra meets Steven for the first time, she doesn't expect what he is about to tell her, or to show her. Can she keep the past where it is? Or will the past come back and grab her when she least expects it?

I cannot wait for the next book to come out. The writing in Once Upon A [Stolen] Time is beautiful. It is like watching a movie in your head. Samreen is very descriptive. She wants you to see what the characters are seeing. She wants you to feel what they are feeling. The storyline is great. I love reading about the past. It brings back a sense of nostalgia to read about what use to go on in the renaissance times. You fall in love with the characters that you are supposed to, and you dislike the ones you are supposed to. Samreen leaves much to the mystery. She leaves you with wanting more.
