Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what happens to the other people in the fairy tale?

Things look grim for Talia and her mother. By royal proclamation, the constables and those annoying "good" fairies have taken away their livelihood by confiscating their spinning wheel. Something to do with a curse on the princess, they said.

Not every young lady has a fairy godmother rushing to her rescue.

Without the promise of an income from spinning, Talia's prospects for marriage disappear, and she and her mother face destitution. Past caring about breaking an arbitrary and cruel law, rebellious Talia determines to build a new spinning wheel, the only one in the nation - which plays right into the evil fairy's diabolical plan. Talia discovers that finding a happy ending requires sacrifice. But is it a sacrifice she's willing to make?

Aurora's real nemesis.

This is not a fairy tale, more a badly done erotic story. I did not even finish this story because it was starting to ruin a beautiful story. When the author brought in the prince and debauched him I was done. Don't waste your 3.95 on it. The narration was okay if not high pitched, but when she did the voice of Rose, I cringed.

Interesting and Clever

I really enjoyed this book and looked forward to the next book written by this author, though after listening to the second book it appears to be completely unrelated to the first and are independent books, though both are interesting. I prefer this book, it was intriguing.
