The 500 Kingdom's Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty, the 5th in Mercedes Lackey’s Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms, pulls in several different tales, as the “Tradition” is bound and determined to force Rosamund, the princess of Eltaria, down a path that Lily, its Fairy Godmother, would rather it not. In order to save her, Lily joins forces with Rosa’s father, in a sham marriage as an “Evil Stepmother.” If only Rosa had known that Lily was on her side, she might not have been running away when the Huntsman started chasing her, too. Throw in dwarves, dragons, more princes than you can count, add trials designed to find a happily-ever-after for the Princess, and you end up with a book that anyone who enjoys fractured fairy tales will enjoy.

The book is scheduled to be released July 1/2010.
