Early Review–Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer
In this thrilling story full of adventure and romance, Sleeping Beauty is more than just a lonely princess waiting for her prince—she's a brave, tenacious girl who never backs down from a challenge. With vampire-slaying talents that she practices in secret, Sleeping Beauty puts her courage to the test in the dark of night, fighting evil as she searches for a way to break the spell that has cut her off from her family. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Sleeping Beauty and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you've ever read!
Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer is an entirely new type of fairy tale–one that will keep today's kids guessing and offer them hours of magical fun.
If you are looking for another copy of that old Sleeping Beauty story that you grew up with, then this isn’t it. This book is so much more. I guess you could call it Sleeping Beauty with a twist.
First off, this book is written as a choose your own adventure story. I used to love reading them back in the day. So of course, when I heard that this was one of those, I just had to read it.
Secondly, who doesn’t love a good vampire story. Imagine that Sleeping Beauty doesn’t sleep constantly until the handsome prince comes to kiss her. Instead, as her kingdom sleeps, she awakens every night to slay the undead menace that has befallen her domain.
I love that we finally have a fairy tale in which the main female is not some damsel in distress awaiting a knight in shining armor to rescue her. This Sleeping Beauty kicks ass and takes names later. She has no qualms about taking out the vampires who want to snack on the people in her kingdom.
This is a quick fun read that can be enjoyed many times.
