The Sleeping Beauty: A Tale of the Five Hundred Kingdoms by Mercedes Lackey

"How would anyone ever find her out here? Who would come here, even if The Tradition led them? Who would see she was pretty beneath the layers of filth that were going to build up on her? Keeping clean was going to be impossible. And if they did, how would they get her free without cutting off her foot? ...No, this was a new twist, and a horrible one, and right now there seemed to be no Path, Traditional or otherwise, out of it."

(~pg. 37 [US hardcover edition, available now])

Goodreads Summary here.

The Sleeping Beauty is the fifth full-length title in the Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdom series. If you think it's about Sleeping Beauty. But if you think this is any sort of traditional tale due to the title, you're wrong. This book isn't what you think it will be!


  1. Great teaser!
