Beauty Sleeping is a darker, more realistic twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty that gives narrative to the everyday choices leading up to those quintessential events so typical of classical fairy tales. The first half of the book progressed fairly slow for me but the latter half kept a good pace. The ending was kind of abrupt and felt unresolved, however, trying to riddle out the possibilities was actually one of the things I liked best about the book. Since this is first in series, the follow-up book will likely answer these questions too. It's the kind of story that sticks with you and makes you think as opposed to wrapping the ending up in a nice little bow. I liked that the story is told from several perspectives including Sleeping Beauty's but I'd like to see the author be more selective with her tangents and details so they don't distract the reader and prevent it from reaching its full suspense potential.
