A unique twist on a common fairy tale, with a variety of unexpected plot elements. Set amongst the folk tales of Russia, this story features a strong heroine with an equally strong, if not knightly, hero. I thought this would be a very predictable tale, but was wrong -- it kept me engaged from start to finish. Highly recommended.

Excellent example of modern fantasy in the type of De Lindt, Bull, and other authors of that type. A Ukrainian scholar wakes Sleeping Beauty. Being a Russian tale, love doesn't necessarily all run smoothly, but the characters are exploring the same relationship questions that Card explored in Children of the Mind, ie. how do strong men and women form relationship with one another? Beautiful characterization and interesting story lines.

This is a very enjoyable retelling of Sleeping Beauty with several twists thrown in. I found the storyline fun, entertaining and consistent. As an adult I appreciated the sexual tension between the main characters and of course a satisfying consummation of their relationship.

The book is enchanting. I love the author, Orson Scott Card, and have read at least 10 of his books.

This is a re-writing of the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, wherein the main character goes back in time and becomes part of the story in an ancient land which becomes Ukraine.

There's culture, religion, magic, witchcraft, myth and legend mixed up in a beautifully written joyous book to read.

I recommend it highly.
