Mistress of All Evil
Mistress of All Evil: A Tale of the Dark Fairy | Serena Valentino
The tale is told as if it's happening once upon a dream: the lovely maiden meets her handsome prince in the woods. The story has been told many times and in many ways. But always the maiden finds out that she is a princess-a princess who has been cursed by a dark fairy to prick her finger on a spindle and fall into an eternal sleep. Though her three good fairies try to protect her, the princess succumbs to the curse. But the power of good endures, as her true love defeats the fire-breathing dragon and awakens the princess with true love's first kiss. The two live happily ever after. And yet this is only half the story. So what of the dark fairy, Maleficent? Why does she curse the innocent princess? What led to her becoming so filled with malice, anger, and hatred? Many tales have tried to explain her motives. Here is one account, pulled down from the many passed down through the ages. It is a tale of love and betrayal, of magic and reveries. It is a tale of the Mistress of All Evil.

I am hoping to get to this series this month, but October is going by too fast! The little spider 🕷 plant 🌱 caldron is from a student (but I think it is not long for this world 💀 - the kitties 🐱 already batted it once under the bed).

This was really entertaining. This author gives a different perspective of the "good" fairies and Malificent retelling the fact that there's good and bad in all of us, it's what you choose to embrace that makes you who you are. Disney is notorious for helpless females so I appreciated this mini-monolouge from the Mistress of Evil. The story behind putting Aurora to sleep is a bit of a stretch but I enjoyed it. #teamnosleep for #mistressofevil

AmyN.Clegg And this is why I am writing my story. Because I want to read a fairy-tale where the girl saves herself ^^ 2mo

Wanna know how I know the author doesn't have curly hair? Because every curly haired girl knows the second you brush your curls, you're going to look like a Chia pet. Game over. The struggle is real. #curlyhair #chiapet

Marilyncjackson If the author does have curly hair this could be wish fulfillment? Maybe? 2mo

As a fan of the series and loving maleficent, I could not wait to read this one. Though I loved the new storylines and character development, the ending left some to be desired.

I'm enjoying this villains series so much. I love how the stories are interwoven and are a sort of a behind the scenes to the stories I've grown up knowing.

laur89 I read Fairest of All and enjoyed it! It was a quick read and I felt like how you describe the series is perfect. Looking forward to reading the other books! 11mo

Finally caught up with this series.. the last two were not my favorite. I feel like the story focused less on the villains and more on side characters (specially in the Ursula book). However I will continue with the series, the plot twists were interesting and I would like to see the next villains that will take place in this series.

Only $0.99 on Kindle today!

This whole series has been sitting pretty at the top of Amazon‘s fairy tale retelling chart for ages. (Disney, Disney, Disney, Cinder, Disney, Disney…) So, frankly, it‘s a little weird to see one of them on sale. Why would they bother? We don‘t know, but grab it while you can. Before they change their minds.

I'm sure that the Mistress of All Evil still makes Aurora prick her finger on the #spindle of a spinning wheel. The only question is: Does she die?

Fairest of All was my favorite for sure. The Beast Within was not what I was expecting and was okay. Poor Unfortunate Souls was pretty good. Mistress of All Evil was pretty good, but I didn't like the ending just because it felt like it was missing something. I would still recommend them for Disney lovers!

Birdsong28 @Meeko93 I hadn't until I went into Whsmith's and saw Tale as Old as Time and A Whole New World as set for £5.99 instead of £14.98 so I just had to have them 😂😂 so I had to get Once Upon a Dream off Amazon (3rd party) just so I could have the set as I thought it was just Tale and World that she had done! I'm such a Disney geek!! But you know like I do that you need to have all the set so you don't miss out 😂😂 2y

The last 10 minutes I was not positive I was going to make it! Thank goodness I did!! @kitkatdallibooks you hit it out of the park. This is the only Salander book I didn‘t yet have, I‘m obsessed with chocolate & Disney & that is a SIGNED copy 😍😍😍 & I LOVED The Borrowers movie when I was a child! I was obsessed & yet I‘ve never read the book 😳

And you know how thoughtful Kathryn is? She included gift receipts for the books just in case ⬇️⬇️

Smangela No need though because I‘m treasuring all my books and goodies. And the coco-cola chapsticks are PERFECT! I LOVE Vanilla Coke and don‘t get to drink it nearly enough! Thank you thank you thank you ♥️♥️♥️ #secretsantagoespostal #wintersolsticebookexchange 2y
