Being a big Disney fan, and also a lover of books, it was no surprise that I would start to collect some Disney Villains books. There are two authors that I have come across that I enjoy so far, and these Disney Villains books are made up of two different series of books.

The first author I read was the Villains series by Serena Valentino. The books are all stand alone, however after the first book was written, Serena Valentino started to reference the characters in further books, so there is an order.
However I started by reading The Beast Within as Beauty and the Beast is my favourite and I didn’t feel as though I have missed out on anything.
Why is the Evil Queen so evil? The first in the set of books from Serena Valentino and we have the chance to look deeper into the past of the Evil Queen.
The Beast Within tells the story of the Beast. What was his background? Why was he the way he was and how did he really end up looking like a beast in the first place. The story of the beast has been told with a variety of different scenarios, but I loved this version.
We all know Ursula is there lurking beneath the water, but we never know too much about her. What really did make her twisted and evil and want to take Ariel’s voice? This is Ursula’s chance to tell her side of the story.
I’ve grown to love Maleficent after a few trips to Walt Disney World and I wish there were more of her in the Disney Parks. Mistress Of All Evil tells the story behind why Maleficent did what she did. Why curse Sleeping Beauty?
Mother Knows Best showcases Mother Grockel. Who is she and where did she come from? We never learned this in Rapunzel so now is our chance to find out all about the evil Mother Grockel.
The Odd Sisters: A Villains Novel
Due for Publication July 2019
Twisted Tales by Liz Braswell is a YA set of books focusing on the Disney Villains. Whilst Liz Braswell covers the same Disney Villains and characters, the slant is very different and they are equally as good as the Disney Villains series of books.
Just what would happen if Aladdin never found the lamp. Without the lamp how will Aladdin fight off Jafar as he attempts to destroy the land.
What if Sleeping Beauty never woke up? We delve deep into Aurora’s dreams as she fights to escape her very own nightmare.
As Old As Time tells the story of Belle and the Beast as they have to unravel memories that go back a lifetime and discover exactly what happened in the past that pivoted their lives to become what they are now.
Mulan takes to the Underworld to save Captain Shang from certain death. If Mulan doesn’t find the spirit by sunrise she will become trapped.
If Ariel hadn’t defeated Ursula then what would have happened? Voiceless and trapped she discovers that her father King Triton may still be alive and sets out to return to a world she never thought she would visit again.
If the Evil Queen poisoned the Prince and ruled the Kingdom, how will Snow White cope? Can she stop the Evil Queen and take back her own Kingdom?
