The Sleeping Beauty – Mercedes Lackey

Did I mention a novel with nods towards a fairy tale? Well, this is a fairy tale with nods to novels I guess.  It was meant to be tongue in cheek and a bit silly. I kept thinking of the Shrek movies while reading it.

The interesting twist is that there’s a metaphysical force that wants these people to live out fairy tale archetypes, and that they are aware of it and try to fight their way through to something that really does let them live happily ever after.

Fairly cute.
