NetGalley Review: Once Upon a Dream

Once Upon a Dream: A Twisted Tale: A Twisted Tale (Twisted Tale, A) - Liz Braswell

I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.


So I have read another book by this author and it was the Twisted Tale #1 A Whole New World which I enjoyed though there were a few things I had questions or issues with. So when I was offered this book to read I jumped on it because I wanted to see where she would go with this twisted story of Sleeping Beauty. I have to say I actually enjoyed this story and found it to be very interesting. What if Aurora never woke up from the kiss that she received from the prince? What if we were inside her mind with her as she is asleep and we get to see what she is doing?

That is exactly how this book goes. It is up to Aurora to wake her own self up and those around her,  learn more about herself than she has ever learned before and find out who is true to her. 

Will she succeed or forever be asleep? 

I really liked how it wasn't all easy for Aurora and how she had to start to trust within herself what to do. 

The plot was very good and everything was very detailed to even the character that befriend Aurora who we learn who she really is towards the very end. There is plenty of action that starts taking place within about the middle of the book so that was nice. 

I have to say I enjoyed how this author is giving us a grown up version so to speak of the fairy tales that we so often heard when we were little. I can't wait to read book three and see what else this author is going to come up.
