#42: Sleeping Beauty Vampire Slayer - Maureen McGowan


In this thrilling story full of adventure and romance, Sleeping Beauty is more than just a lonely princess waiting for her prince—she's a brave, tenacious girl who never backs down from a challenge. With vampire-slaying talents that she practices in secret, Sleeping Beauty puts her courage to the test in the dark of night, fighting evil as she searches for a way to break the spell that has cut her off from her family. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Sleeping Beauty and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!
Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer is an entirely new type of fairy tale–one that will keep today's kids guessing and offer them hours of magical fun.

My Opinion:
LOVED IT!!!
It was everything I was hoping for and more... the fact that it has 8 different ways to it, remarkable! Quite clever too, if you think about it.
I loved Sleeping Beauty in this story so much more than the original fairytale, and let me tell you it had a large bit to live up to being my favorite fairytale. She was so independent and strong, and the fact she could defend herself was a bonus!
I realized after I decided to read it, that it's a second in the series. Yes I have the other book, Cinderella Ninja Warrior, but I didn't think I would be lost. I sure don't feel lost now after reading it either.
Good stuff, for everyone 12+.


5/5
