A Kiss in Time
In a Kiss in Time Talia (who has Aurora as one of her many middle names- a wink to the Disney classic is always appreciated) has grown up in the castle under strict supervision because she is never to touch a spindle. You may remember this is the same fear as in the original tale. On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, the evil witch is able to lure Talia to the spindle, plunging her and the entire kingdom into a deep sleep.
This sleep is so deep that, three hundred years later when Jack arrives everything is just as it was. Jack has managed to give his seemingly boring tour of Europe the slip in hopes of finding a beach. But what he does find is the forgotten kingdom of Euphrasia. As you might have imagined, Jack bestows a kiss upon Princess Talia and brings the entire kingdom back to life. Only they've been asleep for three hundred years. Mayhem ensues!
