Book Giveaway: Mistress of All Evil by Serena Valentino

To celebrate the newest book in the Disney Villains series, we are thrilled to offer a giveaway, in partnership with Disney-Hyperion.

About the Book

Why does Maleficent curse the innocent princess? What led to her becoming so filled with malice, anger, and hatred? Many tales have tried to explain her motives. Here is one account, pulled down from the many passed down through the ages. It is a tale of love and betrayal, of magic and reveries. It is a tale of the Mistress of All Evil.

The Disney Villains series explores how the antagonists in Disney movies became some of storytelling’s most iconic villains. In the first four Villains books, we see how the Evil Queen, the Beast, Ursula, and Maleficent fall into darkness, through the instigation of the mysterious Odd Sisters: Lucinda, Martha, and Ruby.

Mistress of All Evil: A Tale of the Dark Fairy is the fourth book in the Disney Villains Series by Serena Valentino and is available for sale October 3, 2017. Recommended for ages 9+.

    Ohhhh, I have so many favorite villains.

    Disney-wise, Ursula is my ride or die. I feel such a kinship, good thing I’m not a sea-witch 😉
    Book-wise, The Darkling from Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone trilogy is my bae. He’s so good at being bad.

    Also, I would like to argue with Disney that the Beast is NOT the villain in that story at all!!!!! Oh man!
