Audible Editor Reviews

Fairy gifts bestowed at birth, a vicious prophecy, and a contest between science and magic are all key ingredients in this sweet retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale.

Mikaela Martin enchants with her performance of the often-honored Sophie Masson and her novel of the paths taken by Aurora, a blessed royal, and Clementine, a servant’s daughter who heralds the dawn of a new, scientific age. Close as sisters for their first 16 years, there are secrets - particularly the legend of the "sleeping castle" of Joli-Bois - that divide them and cast a spell on listeners.
