Release date: August 27, 2013
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyfairy tale, young adult

Princesses Aurora and Luna have grown up in a cliff-top palace by the sea, where they are carefully protected by their parents, the king and queen. No one visits, the girls cannot stray beyond the castle walls, and, curiously, all sharp objects are forbidden from the castle.

But accidents will happen — particularly when an old curse still has power. Soon, in spite of all precautions, Aurora is struggling not to slip into an enchanted sleep.

Frantic, the princesses accept the help of a young fisherman named Symon and embark on a daring ocean voyage to find their aunt — a fairy who may be able to break the spell. From fearsome beasts to raging storms, many dangers befall them, yet they must not give up... for if Aurora sleeps, she will not wake for one hundred years.

With its brisk pace and lush descriptions, this spellbinding novel will appeal to readers who enjoy the work of Shannon Hale and Gail Carson Levine.
