Publisher's Summary

A beautiful, sexy, contemporary retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. Beauty takes all the elements of the classic fairytale that we love (the handsome prince, the ancient curse, the sleeping girl, and, of course, the haunted castle) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives, and their desires. It's fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Snow White and the Huntsman, and more. Read by Katie Scarfe.

Last book of a circular trilogy

This is the final book in a circular series of 3 fairy tales. It is actually set in time just before book 1 and could be read first, though I think its probably more interesting to start with the first book Poison.

I really like the authors take on a selection of fairy tales. This one is a twist on Sleeping Beauty with a bit of Red Riding Hood and a hint of Rapunzel.
The other 2 books are variants on Snow White and Cinderella. Of the 3 I think the Cinderella book, Charmed, is the best but that one does need to be read after book 1.

Most of the major characters are well defined and not everyone is as good or bad as painted in the traditional versions.

These are also grown up books with an occasional adult bedroom scene though they are not gratuitous and are important to the way the stories are told. They are not suitable for children.

Katie Scarf is perfect as Narrator and really brings the books to life. I thoroughly enjoyed all 3.
The only slight negative is they are all quite short - I got them as parts of 2 for 1 deals so they are not bad value that way but stand alone they are quite expensive for what they are.
