In the traditional fairy tale of 'Sleeping Beauty' the spell cast upon the lovely young princess can only be broken by the kiss of a prince. However, in the world of Anne Rice, this legendary curse is broken not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. The Prince's reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty's complete and total enslavement to him. Sleeping Beauty awakes to a world of seduction, desire and love. In the first of a three part retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story, Anne Rice explores the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive fairy tale, opening up a world of erotic yearning and fantasy which is perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey. This is the first of Anne Rice's classic Sleeping Beauty trilogy.Read Less

Don't waste your time! Worst read ever! An insult to the intelligence, not even entertaining and there is nothing lovable about this story.

Didn't read past page 4. Gave it away. Was a book club read. She's no longer in our book club. :-) Kidding. Way better books out there to read unless you're into this kind of stuff.

Different from her usual faire.
Riveting yet very disturbing. Way off the wall. it truly takes three or more books to properly tell the story.

Did not care for it
I did not really care for this book. Too much violence and degradation. But, if you are into spanking and such, then you'll like this book.
