Sleeping Beauty

By Charles Way

Briar Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) is an independent, headstrong, in-your-face princess. Her best friend, Gryff a smart-aleck, half-dragon is her constant companion until Prince Owain begins to compete for her friendship. Owain comes with the standard princely features — minus bravery, talent and competence. But there is more brewing in the kingdom, Branwen, the good witch and her sister the evil Modron are trying to out-spell each other and Briar Rose is caught in the middle. When Briar Rose pricks her finger and goes to sleep, Owain and Gryff join forces on a funny and adventurous quest to save her, battling troublesome fairy-folk and a riddling Spider king.
