What if Ariel had never defeated Ursula? This is the question that Liz Braswell asks. Braswell created a whole new world where Ursula triumphed over Ariel. Ursula rules this new world along with Prince Eric, who is under a curse. Ariel rules over Atlantica, claiming the title “Queen Of The Sea.”
Since Prince Eric is under a curse, he doesn’t remember Ariel. At least, not completely. One night, he had a dream about what happened, before Ursula cursed him. Prince Eric wrote an opera, La Sirenetta, about his dream. When he released his opera to the public, a very old seagull, by the name Scuttle, saw it. He jumped for joy, ecstatic that Prince Eric remembered. He sent his great-grandgull, Jona, to notify Ariel. But not before they learned that King Triton is still alive!
When Ariel found out, she was filled to the brim with joy! Ariel set off to the surface almost immediately. Since Ursula defeated Ariel, she lost her voice, and now Ursula, posing as Princess Vanessa, claimed Ariel’s voice for herself. Will Ariel get her father, and her voice back? Will Prince Eric break free of his curse? And most importantly, will Ariel defeat Ursula once and for all? You will have to read this book to find out!
Liz Braswell is one of my favorite authors. She knows how to include every little detail, which makes the whole book completely enchanting. While reading this story, I felt like I was actually there. I love books that will completely immerse you. She has authored other twisted tale stories, such as A Whole New World, and Once Upon a Dream.
Older kids who would like to hear a new spin on the classic story will love these books. This is no little kid story. It is more intense than the original story, which I love. There are edge of your seat parts that will make it hard to put the book down!
