Publisher's Summary

Maleficent was a different sort of faerie. For one thing she was raised by all the Fair Folk after her parents were killed. For another she believed there had to be some good in everyone, even humans. Happy and spirited, Maleficent was beloved by all who knew her. That is until she experienced the ultimate betrayal by a trusted friend.

Enraged and embarking on a quest for vengeance, Maleficent must forge her own path in the world to make sense of it all. And while she learns to harness her great powers, the forces against her only grow stronger. The question is, who really is the evil one in this fairy tale?

    "Just like the movie but better detail!!"

    I loved this audio book. it followed the movie almost exactly but since it's a book u get a better idea of emotions and feeling of the characters. I love it makes me want to ready more Disney books like this one!

    "Fantastic"

    I may be biased because this is just about my favorite Disney movie of all time, but I just loved this. Perfect for all ages. And Lucy Raynor is fabulous.

    "better than the movie"

    I love Maleficent! this book is a real treat! it gives insight to Maleficent's parents and the Dragon doesn't fall once. I also like that the Dragon has some extra scenes. I wish Maleficent would have turned into a Dragon but it's way better than Sleeping Beauty. I love this book!!!

    "Really good"

    Shows that there is always two sides to a story. This was a great fairy tale. Kind of was told a different way. Told the wicked fairy side of the story.

    Story
    "How could Disney have gotten it all so wrong?"

    This audiobook was cute as a bug. I haven’t seen the video or film or whatever version of this, but … who would have thought Disney, of all people, would have gotten the story so backwards in the original Sleeping Beauty film? Tsk, tsk, tsk.

    It seems there is more to the story than we knew, and that the real villain is not Maleficent (although she did cause a lot of problems for everybody, not least of all herself), but Aurora’s father, King Stephan. Stephan betrayed Maleficent by stealing her wings, using them to try to gain favor with his predecessor, King Henry, who feared and hated fairies. When that didn’t work, he killed King Henry and altered his will to make himself King. But being King didn’t make him as happy as he had expected, especially after Maleficent attempted to take her revenge on his daughter.

    Maleficent has to learn the hard way how futile trying to get revenge is, and the real meaning of true love, and that true love is really possible after all (something she had not thought possible after Stephan betrayed her), but in the end she does learn, which she did not do in the other story.

    "I loved the book, short expansion of the movie"

    The book was a little longer than the movie. You get to see where Maleficent came from. If you loved the move, you will enjoy this expanded version. It's a short read worth a quick listen.

    "Doesn't match Disney canon"

    I was sorely disappointed. It's very good as presented, but this story doesn't match up with the film Sleeping Beauty. Can't explain further without spoilers. In short, do not buy this if you expect Sleeping Beauty and Snow White from Maleficent's POV, as I did. It's a stand alone story about some other vengeful human-sized fairy. in some separate universe or dimension or whatever.
