The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty: A Novel (A Sleeping Beauty Novel) by Anne Rice

Something very special . . . at once so light and yet so haunting. -The AdvocateIn the traditional folktale of Sleeping Beauty, the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the minds unconscious. Now Anne Rices retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beautys complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience.Articulate, baroque, and fashionably pornographic. -Playboy
