Alternate views of fairy tales seems to be the new thing in books and movies these days. Beauty’s Curse by C.S. Johnson is one of the latest in this genre. With Princess Aurora of Rhone, whom her friends call Rose, we find out what would happen if Sleeping Beauty would take it on herself to find a way to beat the curse that was to come upon her when she reached the age of 18. Some of her friends are bent on revenge. Others want to find a way to end the curse. All of them are there to help Rose. The book is well written and if you love stories about Princesses and fairies full of magic and adventure, you will love Beauty’s Curse, the first in the Once Upon a Princess Saga.
