    A retelling worth reading

    This lovely YA novel is a version of Beauty and the Beast that is worth your time. Spencer uses the tale to explore the feeling of difference without reason and the longing for a better, truer, clearer world so often experienced by fantasy readers. I loved the way her heroine is neither a one-dimensional plucky Disney female nor a wide eyed ingenue waiting to be rescued; this heroine is real, with conflicting desires and an inability to understand her emotions that ring true. Spencer keeps true to the outlines of the tale while managing to find a new, intriguing way to the end.

    Stirring

    I loved it. A beautiful combination of fairy tales. Haunting, stirring, it made me think.

    Geweldig

    Prachtig verhaal, een vertelling van Beauty and the Beast die minstens even mooi is als het originele sprookje, misschien nog wel mooier.

    Beauty is in us all!

    Retelling of beauty and the beast. A take on a classic. Sometimes it was hard to know who was the prey and who was the predator. A great life lesson stop wanting more and start living. Great read.
