Maleficent mistress of evil takes place five years after the events of the last book. Faeries have been going missing from the moors, and Maleficent believes humans are the cause. Aurora is 21 and in love with prince Phillip, and soon to be married. Phillips parents, are overjoyed at the news, or the King is anyway. Queen Ingrith is a cold and evil character. She despises faerie folk and moor folk alike. Ingrith wants to destroy the moors and all who dwell within it, simply because she believes ...more

I love how Disney publishes these books to accompany new movie releases--perfect for my young book-lovers in this house! And what a wonderful way to celebrate the new Maleficent movie and keep the fun going! Thanks for sending an ARC my way, Disney!

WOW! Have you seen the cover of this book? It's obviously screaming perfection! Thank you, @scholastic_au, for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I've watched the movie prior to reading the book so I have spoiled myself already. It's very magical & highly entertaining. Too Fast-paced that I was able to finish it in 4 hours (I promise I have a life). It's like reading the script of the movie & the good thing is I was able to look back on things that I may have missed ...more

When I first heard that there was going to be another Maleficent movie, I couldn't help but role my eyes, I mean, really, is a sequel really necessary? Doesn't Disney make enough money without having to start making unneeded sequels? The only reason i ever planned on even watching it was because Michelle Pfeiffer is in it. I stayed dubious through the beginning of this book, but somewhere in the middle, I got enraptured and now I really want to go see the movie in theaters. I didn't think this ...more

Five years later Aurora is queen of the moors. Prince Phillip has asked princess Aurora for her hand in marriage. Of course she said yes!
Phillip’s parents are a static, they want to met Maleficent, so they invite her to dinner. Maleficent couldn’t not be more against meeting Phillips parents. With a little help from Diaval Maleficent agrees to meet Phillips parents.
While at the dinner things are insinuated about missing fairies and then common folk which causes Maleficent to burst in to anger.

Loved this so much! I'm definitely in a Maleficent hangover from the movie and this was the perfect cure. It went into more detail on some of the scenes from the movie which I enjoyed and the thoughts and emotions of the characters were explained well. Usually I get bored reading novelizations because there's not enough emotion or voice in the writing compared to the movie but this one held my attention so well that I read it in one sitting. One of the best movie novelizations that I've read :)

Another excellent novelisation by Elizabeth Rudnick. She really is a great author so wasted on these Disney novels. I hope one day she writes an original novel that catches my eye.

Took me a week to finish due to no time to catch up on my reading, other than through an audiobook. But I’m glad I finished this one. Was in need of a nice escaping kind of story.

Stands on it's own; also a nice recap of the movie.
Unfortunately the King comes off as a puppet and buffoon.
