What if the sleeping beauty never woke up? Once Upon a Dream marks the second book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. It should be simple--a dragon defeated, a slumbering princess in a castle, a prince poised to wake her. But when the prince falls asleep as his lips touch the fair maiden's, it is clear that this fairy tale is far from over. With a desperate fairy's last curse controlling her mind, Princess Aurora must escape from a different castle of thorns and navigate a dangerously magical landscape--created from her very own dreams. Aurora isn't alone--a charming prince is eager to join her quest, and old friends offer their help. But as Maleficent's agents follow her every move, Aurora struggles to discover who her true allies are and, moreover, who she truly is. Time is running out. Will the sleeping beauty be able to wake herself up?… (més)

Aurora is perfectly happy living in the castle with her aunt Maleficent away from the world her parents destroyed until slowly she starts to realize what her aunt is telling her might be the truth. When the prince doesn't come to kiss Sleeping Beauty and wake her up, Aurora has to fight her way through her dreams and nightmares to be able to wake herself up. Aurora has to learn who her real allies are and who she truly is in order to save herself from the dream world that she is cursed to be in.

While the premise was interesting, the execution had a lot to be desired. The writing style is choppy and confusing to follow at times, and the characters were often childish or strange in how they interacted with each other. The descriptions throughout the story were bland, and most of the plot is slow and boring enough to make the reader want to be in a dream themselves instead. It feels like it's trying too hard in the plot and text while not trying nearly hard enough to make the characters interesting. For example, Sleeping Beauty's hobbies only include twirling and sleeping. The tone also makes it difficult to read because at times it's trying to feel like a Disney story and the next it could be much darker. Even the most dedicated fairy tale readers and Disney fans should look elsewhere for a good Sleeping Beauty retelling. ( )

The second book in the Twisted Tale series was much better than the first, in my opinion! This one starts at the end of the story we know: the dragon is not dead yet, and as the clock ticks down she makes one last stand.

In the post-apocalyptic world created by her parents’ recklessness and greed, Aurora lives contentedly with her aunt Maleficent, confined within the walls of the palace with all the remaining survivors in the kingdom, surrounded by an inhospitable wasteland. But everything is not as it seems…

Strange things begin happening as pieces of the real world filter through into Aurora’s mind. With her true memories slowly returning, she must find a way to escape the dreamscape Maleficent has trapped her in before time runs out. Because the prince’s kiss didn’t work, and there is no one left to wake her up.

This was a really creative addition to the classic Sleeping Beauty story and I genuinely enjoyed it! Aurora’s character was given much more depth: reconciling two sets of memories with what she now knows about her reality; questioning her parents’ and the fairies’ choices in how they protected her and raised her; dismantling the love-at-first-sight trope; and growing into her role as a leader to her people.

Definitely recommend! ( )

This twisted tale of Sleeping Beauty is truly twisted. I thin Braswell was very creative in this tale changing up the story that I think everyone would have questioned. In the movie I didn't see much personality in the characters which gives a more creative aspect when Braswell wrote this book. With more personalities in the book I grew to love the prince and the adventure the princess had to go through. Instead of her being helpless throughout, Braswell made Aurora truly strong and brave which I was very pleased with. ( )

Sleeping Beauty is one of my favorite Disney movies. I really enjoyed this twist on the original tale. The story starts out a bit slow, but once Aurora stops being a pampered princess...the story really takes off. I particularly enjoyed that it was the typical ‘prince rescues princess’ story and Aurora can really shine through as her own hero. ( )

Though I did not like the first in the series, I leave ved this version of Sleeping Beauty. This totally rocked and I am a huge Maleficent fan. This depiction of her, only makes me love her evil and twisted version of her !! ( )

Once upon a time I was in an endless dark forest. No—actually endless, I tell you! In another world! I wandered for ages all by myself in the woods. My wife died years ago, you see. I don’t know where my oldest boy was. My little girls and lads were safe at home, I think.

Once upon a time, we were all together, in a castle, you know, but things change. Wives die and eldest sons grow up and chase after princesses and peasant girls, riding away from you forever….

For my daughter, Ivy. Wake up, grab your sword, defeat the twin dragons of doubt and
uncertainty, conquer the world. I will always love you.

Also, stop drinking my coffee.
