5 magical stars!
This is a clever and futuristic re-telling of Sleeping Beauty, with minor Cinderella and Snow White aspects. More Cinderella and Snow White plot lines coming later in The Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles series!
In order to preserve peace and connect the two royal lines; a prince and princess were betrothed as babies, much to the dismay of the evil faerie, Bryanna.
Apolline, our Sleeping Beauty, grew up in secret in the enchanted woods of a planet on the outer boarder of the joint ruling kingdoms in the galaxy. She was raised by three fairies, affected by magic and has excelled in the unladylike skill of hunting magical creatures. She is a spirited heroine and can handle herself in a tough crowd.
Prince Allard, on the other hand, was raised in the palace by his father and groomed to become King himself one day. In an effort to keep the betrothal secure and intact, no images of either the prince or princess have been allowed to reach the public’s eye. As Apolline and Allard have no idea what each other look like, their interactions are feisty and a joy to read.
Perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer’s ‘The Lunar Chronicles’!
