Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy, yet she is cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and to free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora's throne ten years ago.
Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it's too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise keep them from ever finding their one true love?

"With the expert narration of Julia Whelan, the continuing story of Sleeping Beauty's daughter, Aurora, can only be described as alluring. Dressed as a boy, Aurora enlists the help of Prince Niklaas, who is also under a curse, to help her raise an army to defeat the ogre queen who is holding her brother hostage. It's difficult to decide which is more appealing in Whelan's narration: Aurora's lilting, slightly accented confessions or Niklaas's growling reflections. As an extended comedy of errors prevents the star-crossed couple from uniting until the last possible moment, Whelan provides impassioned dialogue and a few surprises. Fairy-tale adaptations abound, but this narration is as enchanted as its characters. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
