"LITTLE PRINCESS, LOVELY AS THE DAWN, WELL-NAMED AURORE..."

With these seemingly innocent words, the fate of a newborn princess is sealed. For years the king and queen despaired of ever having a child. When Aurore arrives, though the entire kingdom celebrates, not all are overjoyed. They use her christening as an occasion for revenge, and her young life is overshadowed by a curse of death almost as soon as it has begun. Those who can, intervene, but evil has a way of holding fast. A sleep of a hundred years following the pricking of a finger is the best that can be done.

And so Aurore grows up. Forbidden princesslike tasks of embroidery and sewing, she explores the great outdoors, reveling in the flora and fauna that surround her castle home. Then one day she meets a handsome stranger in an enchanted wood and begins an adventure the likes of which she never dreamed of.

This is the story of the Sleeping Beauty, here quite awake and given new voice. Taunted by fate, Aurore soon learns that although shecannot sidestep her own destiny, love itself is actually the most powerful magic of all.

Synopsis:

Aurore, a young tomboy of a princess, embarks on a dangerous journey alongside a prince, only to find a curse activated upon her the moment she attempts to rescue him in a battle. Their mutual love proves the key to her own salvation. Original.
