The Sleeping Beauty (Tale of the Five Hundred Kingdoms) - Mercedes Lackey A fun, easy-going fairytale-esque story that works in various popular fairytales as part of the Tradition. Very enjoyable, ended up enjoying the characters and their adventures and find myself possibly interested in more of Lackey's fairytale books.


Only problems were the story seemed overly long and by the last 100 pages I was past ready to be done and felt some sections could have benefited from some thinning. Some of the characters seemed very stereotypical, even the ones I liked were not all that interesting or unique.

I loved that the two guys, instead of being jealous jerks over Rosa, ended up becoming best friends and helping one another! And the fact that Siegfried is able to shake his doom and help free his aunt from her's and find his friend a wife? Such a fun ending scene when they tell off Siegfried's grandfather.

Overall: Worth a read if you like that sort of thing and have a bit of time.
