Have you seen the new Maleficent: Mistress of Evil movie yet? My husband & I went last week, and I think I liked it even more than the first movie — AND it’s gotten me even more excited to dive into Heart of the Moors by Holly Black, an original Maleficent story that takes place between the two live action movies. (It’s NOT a tie-in novel though, so it can be read even if you haven’t seen the movies.)
Thanks to the folks at Disney Books, I’ve got an awesome prize pack to giveaway in celebration of Heart of the Moors, including a copy of the book and a Maleficent top. Keep reading for all the details, and to learn more about Heart of the Moors, in stores now.
From New York Times bestselling author Holly Black comes a captivating original novel set between Disney’s Maleficent and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, in which newly-queened Aurora struggles to be the best leader to both the humans and Fair Folk under her reign; her beau, Prince Phillip, longs to get to know Aurora and her kingdom better; and Maleficent has trouble letting go of the past.

I like Maleficent but my favorite is Yzma from Emperor’s New Groove. I think Maleficent was misunderstood in some versions of the tale. Jolie’s portrayal is one of my favorites.
What I love best are the cleverness and perseverance of the villains.
My favorite thing about Maleficent is that it’s something my 4 yo niece (aka by bff) and I both love. She may be a little young for this one now but in a couple years I would share this book with her. Thanks for the chance to win 🙂
I love her no nonsense attitude! We also like Ursula!
What isn’t there to love about Maleficent!?! I love everything about her. My favorites are Cruella De Vil, Ursula, and Queen of Hearts.
I love that she’s not really all that bad. As tough as she is, she is also soft.
I think it’s because Angelina Jolie is so good at this part. We loved the first movie and we will be seeing this latest one this weekend.
Did my comment go through?
“Tell us what you love about Maleficent, and your other favorite Disney villains.” Hmm–I think the wicked queen in “Snow White” would be one of my favorites! But Maleficent does seem very wicked!
I love that villains are now getting to tell their sides of the story in retellings! Maleficent’s anger had to have a bigger backstory.
She is so misnderstood and strong, I want to know everything about her
Honestly i love Maleficent mostly because my dad thinks if i was any disney character i would be her. Im not even mad about it, despite wishing i was more princessy, because shes steong and she knows what she wants. I respect that!
I love her voice! 🙂 I also like Ursula
I like how clever Maleficent is. My favorite Disney villains are Oogie Boogie and Scar.
I like that you feel for her even though she is evil. Shows that people are a mix of good and bad.
I like how she is a mix of good and bad.
I love Maleficent’s style and attitude! My other favorite villains are Ursula and the Evil Queen from Snow White.
I love that Maleficent is a leader who cares for those she feels called to protect. My fave villain is Rattigan from The Great Mouse Detective
I love that despite her being the villan, she truly has so much love in her.
I love Maleficent’s fabulous confidence!
I love how humanizing Maleficent’s backstory was. I also adore Captain Hook ☺️
Villians make the heroes stand out.
I think she is misunderstood, because she had a really good heart but she was betrayed and deformed by someone she trusted
I think she is really misunderstood, she was betrayed and deformed by someone she loved
I love how strong Maleficent is and I also love how she still has some heart in her actions!
I like that Maleficent is not really as tough as people might think she is. A little bit of a good side.
Maleficent is SO clever and smart and doesn’t let anyone drag her down.. I love most villians.. More than the heroes.
I love how strong and smart she is
