Author: Orson Scott Card
Recommend: Definitely- an interesting twist on sleeping beauty…
This is one of my favorite Card books which is somewhat odd because it is not his normal science fiction fare. This book is a fantasy that includes both a typical fantasy setting and the modern world mixed together in an extremely unique and engaging story. What would it be like if you were running through the woods one day and found something straight out of a fairytale book? Would you kiss the sleeping princess? What if that princess wasn’t exactly what you thought she would be? What if your prince charming showed up in tennis shoes instead of armor?
This sleeping beauty tale only takes the essence of the girl in her everlasting sleep and the rest is all original Card.
I can’t really come up with a negative for this one. It will grab you and suck you in from beginning to end.
