Very interesting, made me think. A dystopian Sleeping Beauty tale: Rose is woken after 62 years in stasis and the world is a very different place. I sped through this book, wanting to know how it all came together. This book is a bit of an anomaly – a stand-alone book, not a series. (submitted by JF)

Fabulous sci-fi with a great twist.

I didn't really like this book, although it kept me turning pages and wasn't boring, the ending was really disappointing.

Definitely the best twist on Sleeping Beauty I've ever read. It was creatively set in the future, involved a very complicated love story, and was all bound together by this giant mystery of why she was stassed in the first place. Confused? Pick it up and read it! You won't regret it!!

I didn't like it (no offense to all other lovers), but I found it boring. Still if you like the romance, science fiction mid -evil type, then I recommend it.

i loved this book. it was about a futurism sleeping beauty where her parents put her in this glass capsule so she would sleep and be out of their hair. i hope she writes a second book in this series because she leaves it open into the girl finding her brothers and sisters who are also in glass capsules.

A downloaded the audio book version of this and listened to it on my iPod. I loved this book, even though I always hated sleeping bueaty. This made it so much better. It was very sad at different points and I cried about three different times while listening to it. All the charaters were great and I was never quite sure what was going on in their heads. This was the perfect fairy tale with a modern day twist.
