Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With colorful characters, Lackey makes her variation of the Sleeping Beauty story great fun to read."—Booklist

"[Lackey] turns her hand to historical fantasy in this intriguing and compelling re-creation of England in the waning days of its imperial glory."—Library Journal

"Beautiful phrasing and a thorough grounding in the dress, mannerisms and history of the period help move the story along gracefully...fully fleshed out and credible.  This is a wonderful example of a new look at an old theme."—Publishers Weekly
