    Cute story

    Sleeping Beauty aka Lucette is cursed. Literally. She was cursed as a baby by the vampire queen. Since that fateful day her life has been full of tribulations. Lucette's parents are always arguing and she can't help but feel this is all her fault. Her parents will stop at nothing to keep her safe. However the closer she gets to her sixteenth birthday the worse things get. In order to survive the curse she must sharpen her slayer skills. In order to break the curse she must find her true love. Will she find true love in the boy who helped perfect her slayer skills or will she find it with the enemy?
    This is another fun book to read. Like Cinderella you get to choose Sleeping Beauty's path at certain points in this story, each path with consequences. Lucette is quite different than the Sleeping Beauty I'm used to. I felt sorry for her always being caught in the middle of her parents arguments. However I think that's what made her character so great. She had a vulnerable side along with her tough exterior. There are eight possible routes throughout this book, each leading you in a different direction. I love these twisted tale books. Maureen McGowan definitely shakes it up a bit. Gives these stories a modern twist. I absolutely love that she makes the heroines a force to be reckoned with.

    Hated the Ending

    it was a really good book - but i didn't like who she ended up with. the author pulls you along showing you someone you want her to be with but then she changes it to another guy.
    good story but i hated the ending.

    Good book!

    I have to admit that when I started this book, I was a little reluctant to read it. But as soon as I was done with the first chapter I was hooked. This fairy tale had a great twist on it. I loved how the story was changed yet similar.


    This twisted fairy tale was definitely twisted. It still had the whole prick your finger and you fall asleep and you have to find your true love in order to break it. Only this time, when she pricks her finger, she stays asleep all day, and the entire kingdom sleeps all night. So how is she supposed to find her true love if they are all asleep?


    I like that you also get to choose what path she takes. Now, I did go through as many paths as I can, but I did find it frustrating that no matter what the path she took she ended up with the same guy. I was hoping that I can choose a path that will lead her to a guy that I wanted her to end up with, but no.


    I still like the story nonetheless and enjoyed the twist on the classic fairy tale.

    Fun read...

    It was fun trying the different options,and I did enjoy the story. The only complaint I have is that there is only one ending. It would be especially fun if there were multiple endings.
