"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

On another level, I am compelled to think about this story as a parable for spiritual warfare in the Christian life. Perhaps that is not the author's intention, but the parallels are many. The reader who looks at it from this perspective may be wondering what lessons they might draw.
I didn't know until I went to write this review that this was a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I'd honestly label it an original fairy tale. There were parts of this I really liked such as Aribella having siblings and parents alive. So often in YA we get the MC alone or missing a family member. It sounds like she had a good childhood and lots of love.
I didn't like how easily she moved on from them though. That was hard. And I know it was explained as her adjusting, but that's still something that I struggled with.
I liked Bion a lot and really didn't know why he wasn't the immediate choice for a suitor. I mean, they had planned on making him king. He had connections, political savvy, people respected him, etc. He was the obvious choice and yet for some reason he wasn't on the list. I didn't get that.
I would've liked to feel more that Aribella was fighting the mage. Instead it felt like she just wasn't winning at all and then BAM she was doing great.
There's a lot of beautiful moments to this story and overall I really enjoyed it.
