If anything, this would be a decent lead-in to the REAL story: what happens when Beauty awakens? THAT I might be willing to read, but won't read any other short works from this author.
The story's told convincingly from different points of view, with only the heroine's voice silent. By the end, I'm longing to hear her speak. I want her to remember, to know, perhaps even to save the one who saved her. Then I remember, we've seen who she is. Do we really need to be told?
Well-timed, well-told, neither longer nor shorter than it need be, Sleeping Beauty is indeed a modern fairy-tale, with all the gruesome cruelties of the old set in the world of the new.
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to buy this when it was free.
The description I found on amazon says exactly what this story is about, a terrible tale of what happens when parents become too protective to the point of cruelty. The story will leave you hurting for the young couple it involves. My only beef was at the end I wanted to know more, which is a good thing. What happens to this poor cursed couple.
I definitely recommend this story which follows the formula of a true fairy tale before Disney got a hold of them. You'll enjoy this modern version of sleeping beauty.
