"As an old women, Elise overhears her great-great grandchild tell the fairy tale of "Sleeping Beauty."  But she knows the real story, as she was at the castle then, so she decides it's time to tell the real story.  A darker retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" told from the perspective of one of the castle's companions to the princess; an intriguing tale that reminds me  of  John Saturnall's Feast with the story told from behind the scenes at the castle by a servant."--Reviewed by Percy
