This is a retelling of the Brothers Grimm Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, but it is no Disney version. Told as a flashback by one of the Queen’s attendants, it paints a much darker picture than some of the portrayals we may be used to. In addition to the expected characters, many new ones make their appearances, and there are side stories and a twist at the end, as well.
Those who love fairy tales will not be disappointed. ~ Reviewed by Gail King
