    1. I really liked this retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale. It was true enough to the story, but told well enough as to not give away everything that was going to happen. It was just different enough to make it interesting, and I really appreciated that the story was told from Auralia's twin sister's point of view.The majority of the drama was about Selene's life, and the steady intrigue kept me interested. At points I wondered why she didn't see things that someone who is as sharp-witted an [...]


    2. Sleeping Beauty with a twist. Selene is the twin sister of the one who is cursed. She is wild, strong willed, and has no clue as to the curse on her family. When she does find out, she escapes to another city, takes on a false name and lives as a governess. After the curse falls, she finds herself with a husband she doesn't love, embroiled in the contest for queenship of the whole kingdom, and trying to figure out how to protect and wake her country.Taken from the total perspective of Selene, th [...]


    3. The book was well-crafted. The setting and design of the kingdom lent itself to the political turmoil that played an interesting role in the plot.My favorite part of the book was the dimensions of Selene and the depth of her character. I enjoyed reading a book featuring a heroine that so transparently (at first) tried to be manipulative to fit in with the demands of vying for the role of queen. However, by the end of the novel, her attempts at manipulation become less clear and at points I found [...]


    4. The Puppet Queen is a retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale by Mira Zamin. Her reindition had Middle Eastern charm complete with Djinni who grant wishes very like the Aladdin story and a new magical creature, the Pari who might or might not be distant or close cousins to the Fairies. 3 Stars I gave for Mira's laidback writing style, her creativity, solid plot and characterisations. She strove to airbrush most of her characters into hateable or likeable personalities and she did it in style. [...]


    5. Not to my taste at all. Every now and then I'd like a little bit, and then it was gone and I was frustrated by the story and the method of storytelling I ended up skipping whole chapters because I was so disappointed and in some ways disgusted with the way the book was laid out. I did not like the writing style, I did not like the story itself. As I said, I found a few bits here and there to be entertaining, just enough that I sort of made it to the end of the book (I kept thinking it had to get [...]


    6. The title of this book is quite misleading. Instead of the main character being the sleeping beauty Auralia, it is actually her twin sister Selene. The author spins a fabulous tale of regal life which includes (but is not limited to) codependency, greed, intrigue and finding ones true self. Minor editing flaws (one instance a character was sitting on a "ouch") did not detract from the encompassing nature of this story told from the perspective of the one who was able to remain awake.


    7. An interesting retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale. I liked how the book was true enough to the fairytale but still told well enough to not give away everything in the story, it was still different and interesting. I also really liked how the story was told from the point of view of the twin sister of the Sleeping Beauty, it gave a fresh retelling with a twist of the loved fairytale.


    8. The Puppet Queen is a great twist on the well known fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty. I really enjoyed this read. It is an adult version, gritty, and full of intrigue. There is no swearing, the only sexual content is implied rape, does contain violence. I can recommend for ages 16 and up. I will be reading more by this author.



    9. An engaging retelling of Sleeping Beauty from her sister's perspective. Definitely not for children. Real and disturbing events without any sweet fluff. Some editing issues but not too distracting.
