What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney's Aladdin.
When Jafar steals the Genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish.To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war.

What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.

I really enjoyed this variation on a familiar story. I thought it was neat how the beginning followed so closely to the original and then when the twist happened I was excited to see where the story would go. I was a little surprised by the fate of one of the characters but thought that with the circumstances it was fitting.

I own this book and I’ve had it since it came out. I’ve tried to read it twice, and I just can’t get into it for the life of me and I’m so sad about it because I love Aladdin. It’s my favorite movie idk I prob wouldn’t recommend this book :(

This reimagining of Disney's Aladdin is compelling and provides an honest and compassionate look at humankind and what leads them down the paths they follow.

The equivalent to fractured fairy tales for children, this is an original spin on a Disney favorite, that lives up to the challenge of staying true to the Aladdin characters but delves into a refreshing turn of events. Romance and action keep the pages turning.

I opened this one and couldn't put it down. It's the first in a series of "Disney Twisted Tales" by Ms. Braswell and honestly I love the twists she puts in each of them. It shows how one simple little decision can change an entire universe and how the story can take a completely different turn. I can't wait to see what her next story is and I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys Disney movies. The next one in the series is Once Upon A Dream and her most recent is As Old As Time; retellings of Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast respectively.

As you start reading the first 100 pages you feel like you're reading the movie. It's exactly the same. But then we get to the cave of wonders and it finally takes the change of direction. It was a good decent read above all.
