Slumber (The Slumber Duology, #1)

Slumber (The Slumber Duology, #1) - Christy Sloat I haven’t actually read a lot of fairy tale re-tellings but I do have to admit this one is really great. I have to say the only Sleeping Beauty stories I knew were the ones from Disney (*coughs* MALEFICENT FTW) and the TV show, Once Upon A Time. She’s not even my favorite Disney Princess (It’s Mulan :P) but it’s quite enjoyable to read a novel about her especially with a twist.

Slumber tells the story of Rory, who’s been admitted into Spindle Ridge Asylum as a patient for killing her boyfriend Phillip. However, as the story goes on, she discovers about her past which changed everything.

Rory was an interesting character. I wasn’t attached to her that much but seeing her character grow gave me satisfaction. It was such an adventure for me to see her grow. I have to admit I liked her chemistry with Sawyer. A LOT. The other characters were interesting as well. Malisa/Maleficent came off to be a great villain, and Raven did as well.

I loved the fact that the story’s setting was in an asylum. I don’t know, but somehow that appealed to me. I think I really do like twisted books sometimes.

It’s my first time to read anything from Christy Sloat and I have to say I’m very impressed of her writing.
