|Plot Summary of Beauty|
|"This is a very interesting re-telling of the fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty", but this is not for children.
There are various references to other tales throughout the book. It's part fantasy, part science-fiction, time-travel and saving the world.
It's brilliant, I read it at one sitting, I just couldn't put it down.
