Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite fairy tale and with Kevin Richey's twisted retelling, it made me fall in love with it all over again!
From the very beginning I was hooked immediately and I couldn't wait to see how Beauty is a Beast was going to go! I loved how dark and twisted this was, I also loved seeing favorite characters came into play! Plus, enjoying new characters within this story like the Madam, ooh she was cruel.
I loved the zombie take on this one! Truly gore worthy of any horror fan! And for any fans of Beauty and the Beast, it isn't hard to fall in love with Belle's and the Beast's relationship, though strange it may seem. It was the light in this very dark world they live in.
Overall, I truly enjoyed Beauty is a Beast! Though I wished for more back story on why Belle doesn't like physical contact, I get why you wouldn't like to be touched by a complete stranger but I also wonder why she didn't have any interest in men, she's nineteen. I get why she might not want to marry but still, it makes you wonder. Other than that, it was one of my favorites so far out of this series. Being my favorite fairy tale, Kevin Richey did not let my high expectations down! One I would gladly reread again!
Sweet Readings Everybody!
