Publisher's Summary

The tale is told as if it's happening once upon a dream: the lovely maiden meets her handsome prince in the woods. The story has been told many times and in many ways. But always the maiden finds out that she is a princess - a princess who has been cursed by a dark fairy to prick her finger on a spindle and fall into an eternal sleep. Though her three good fairies try to protect her, the princess succumbs to the curse. But the power of good endures, as her true love defeats the fire-breathing dragon and awakens the princess with true love's first kiss. The two live happily ever after.

And yet this is only half the story. So what of the dark fairy, Maleficent? Why does she curse the innocent princess? What led to her becoming so filled with malice, anger, and hatred? Many tales have tried to explain her motives. Here is one account, pulled down from the many passed down through the ages. It is a tale of love and betrayal, of magic and reveries. It is a tale of the mistress of all evil.

The last book is the best

There were times where words had been overused, characteristics seemed to not match with the prior books and the story was unraveling too slow but it in the end the four books in this series told a great story regarding Maleficent and some other characters not known to us.

middle-low recommend out of the series

story was ok, ending felt rushed and inconsistent. Previous books - Beast, Ursula and Snow Whites Evil Queen were far superior.

If it could only be animated...

Maleficent has always been my favorite Disney character. She in the only female viliain who is beautiful. Even if she's green...

This was an amazing tale showing her perspective and reasoning. Between the amazing writing and the great narration, there were parts I could see and experience like I was watching it. I plan on listening to the first 3. I just couldn't wait to listen to this one. Once I have more background I will probably listen to it again.
