Publisher's Summary

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for 62 years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, 16-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose -  hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire - is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes - or be left without any future at all.

Sleeping Beauty Sci-Fi Edition

This is a hard book for me to review. Although it is a very light and enjoyable listen it also has some depth and layers to it that will absolutely break your heart.

It’s a great story with tons of action and so many twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. Not to mention it has a killer ending. Yes folks, this book actually has an ending!

If like YA books like Cinder or Under the Never Sky then you will enjoy this one too.

Amazing Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

At first, I wasn't such a fan of the narrator. Her voice seemed very old and adult for a 16 year old girl. But as the story went on, I became very drawn to the story.

It was extremely romantic - especially her romance with her first love. So be sure to bring along some tissues when you listen. The end is incredibly tear jerking. There is a sweet ending, or as happy as it could be given the situation.

Incredibly romantic.

You can really feel for her sadness and everything that she has lost.

I really enjoyed it, and this is the first YA novel that I've read in a while that actually made me cry.
