Description

What happened after the happily ever after?

You all know the story of your favorite fairy tale, but did you ever wonder what happened after the fairy-tale ending? Well, we know. Not all afters end up happily; sometimes the real adventure starts much later….

No one understands what it’s like when your mother is famous for her beauty and you are, at best, average. Actually I’m wrong. She wasn’t famous just for her beauty, but that’s how people tell the story, how people have always told the story. That was even her name for a while. No one remembered her real name. She was just the sleeping princess or Sleeping Beauty. Even all these years later, when the royals appear in the paper, my father, the king, barely gets a mention, and I’m only a footnote in my own life, destined to always be Sleeping Beauty’s daughter.

My name’s Princess Azia Rose of Draconis, and here is my story….

Following famous fairy-tale characters, 18 years after their happily ever after, the Kingdom of Fairytales offers an edge-of-the-seat thrill ride in an all-new and sensational way to listen to.

    This was a fantastic tale of life after the fairytale, about sleeping beauty’s adopted daughter. The premice was exciting and the story engaging, which kept my interest to the end, the narration was excellent only enhancing the story, bringing it to life. Princess Azia’s just turned 18, and despite her parents fairy tale romance her father has arranged a marriage to an old friend who hints at secrets being kept,
    the dragons are agitated, and there unrest in the kingdom. I really enjoyed this book, and can’t wait for the next one.

    Such a great spin on the after story for Sleeping Beauty, we watch as Princess Azia, Sleeping Beauty’s daughter finds out that her parents plan to have her marry. We watch everything that transpires in a mirid of action and drama with a sprinkling of romance. Loved the narrator that was chosen for this book, they did so much better at giving life to the characters than my distracted mind did when I read the kindle edition. I can not wait to listen to more of the Kingdom of Fairytales series

    I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Narration 9/10
    The narration is good, mostly through first person perspective of the protagonist and the voice fits the character just fine. Just bump up the speed a little bit.

    Story 6.5/10
    The story is about Princess Azia, the adopted daughter of the “Sleeping Beauty”, and is told thought her perspective after her 18th birthday. The pace of the story is good and there are several points of interest. However, rather than exploring those and focusing on the fantasy parts and world building, there is so much focus in the love interests of the princess, which was totally unanticipated since no romance is suggested by the genre tag (Sci-Fi & Fantasy > Sword & Sorcery), or the title, or even the provided summary.

    Overall I think that this had more potential and would only read the followups if I knew they focus more on the suggested themes. As it is, I can only suggest this to kids and teenage girls.

    I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and any opinions expressed herein are my own.

    This story is not a re-telling of Sleeping Beauty but rather the story of Sleeping Beauty picks up when her daughter Azia is told that her parents have arranged her marriage – trouble is that Azia does not like her soon-to-be husband and wants to embark on her own adventures. So, she tells a white lie to keep the marriage at bay…

    This is the first book in the series. It is not a standalone and does end on a cliffhanger. Having said that, the story about Azia trying to come into her own is very engaging but the undercurrent to Azia’s hope for independence is Sleeping Beauty’s curse and how Sleeping Beauty was actually rescued. I found the way the author deftly wove together Azia’s story and Sleeping Beauty’s story to be very interesting and at the end of this book, I found myself wanting to know more. This is great family fare.

    The narrator, Melody Muzljakovich, is terrific. She makes these characters come alive through her narration. She provides distinct voices for all of the characters and made this a very enjoyable and entertaining listen.
