Heart of the Moors: An Original Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Novel

We rated this book:


Aurora has been crowned queen of both the Moors and Perceforest, but ruling is more difficult than she imagined. It’s not just that she can’t reconcile the differences between the two places, but also that her people are not ready to listen to one so young, but she keeps trying. To broker peace, she invites the creatures of the Moors to share why they don’t like humans and asks the people of her kingdom to share why they don’t like the creatures from the Moors. This leads to a wonderful but challenging idea. Meanwhile, Maleficent is just trying to keep Aurora safe, which is proving more and more difficult. Who knew ruling two vastly different areas would be so dangerous?

This book follows the ending of the first live-action Maleficent movie, with references to delight readers who enjoyed the film. Black keeps the quick wit and dry humor and writes Maleficent as though the author were a writer for the original film, allowing readers to see the book as a movie in its own right. It is an excellent, light-hearted visit through an enchanting land for those who cannot get enough of these characters.
