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.

    "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.

    Story
    "THE HORNED WOMAN"

    HUMANS ARE A PART OF NATURE TOO
    I never saw the movie, but will probably buy it now. It took me a little while to warm up to it, but once I did I was amazed at the depth of the writing. Adapted by Elizabeth Rudnick, she was able to get her points across without being preachy or giving lectures. It would be nice if some writers for adult fiction would take a lesson from this work. There were several twists, some I saw coming and some I did not. The first twist, I did not see coming and was shocked at the cruelty. The second twist, was one I saw coming, but loved it. Sometimes you can guess an outcome and it is a nice to be proven right and to see it happen. The last I did not see coming, but loved it.

    TRUE LOVE, DIDN'T EXIST
    This is a lesson in real love and in revenge. Humans can be cruel, but when seeking revenge, who else will get hurt? The kids will like this a little better than the adults, but both will enjoy it.

    HEDGEHOG FAIRY
    Production and Narrator were good.
