My Review:
Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer by Maureen McGowan is a wonderful story for those of us who love the old fairy tales and just wished the originals had more ACTION! 

True to the original Sleeping Beauty this tale still has a princess... Lucette, cursed by the evil vampire queen, Natasha. However, this time, if she pricks her finger she will sleep during the day while the rest of the kingdom of Xandra is awake and at night they shall sleep while she is awake. The Fairies lessen the impact by making it so that Lucette is safe from pricking her finger until after she turns 16 and once she finds her true love the curse shall be lifted. Of course if Queen Natasha has anything to say about it she will soon be ruler over Xandra and Lucette will be a Vampire!

Most of the main characters very well developed. The King and Queen really do clash like an old married couple and to imagine  all this started because of jealously... Queen Natasha's jealously that is. And if only Lucette really knew the truth of her dear little family sooner. 

I truly love the fact that as you read this story you determine how our dear heroine's course is going to unfold... Were you going to lie to dear old King daddy or just let him have his way? Will you stay with the guy that help you while everyone was asleep or follow your heart? Hmm... decisions, decisions..... Eight in all. My only complaint even with all the fun decision making the story still ends with the same ending. Why couldn't we have been offered alternate endings? Now that would have been AMAZING.

Over all a great Young Adult book. I definitely recommend it.
