Amy Landon's lively narration unites present-day Ohio and Perceforest, a fairy-tale realm, in this immersive reimagining of the Sleeping Beauty universe. On her 21st birthday, Zinnia Gray is transported into a world resembling that of her beloved Sleeping Beauty stories. At the same moment, a princess about to prick her finger on a spindle calls for help. Landon's characterizations of Zinnia and Princess Primrose illuminate their strengths and vulnerabilities. The story is told through Zinnia's perspective, and listeners absorb her sense of urgency over her chronic illness and Primrose's fate. Landon also creates haughty, slightly British-sounding royal denizens whose tones contrast with those of Zinnia's parents and stalwart best friend, Charm. A powerful sisterhood anchors this entertaining Fractured Fable production. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
