New York Times best-selling author Meagan Spooner spins a thoroughly thrilling Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that listeners won't soon be able to forget.
Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones - and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who's ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there's no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva's father's misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he'd been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast.
Deaf to her sisters' protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory - a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva's only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin - or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty or the Beast?

The first 30-45 minutes I could have stopped and not gone back. Hour 2, I'm interested, hour 4 I'm obsessed. This is a great "beauty and the beast" retelling that is both magical and realistic. Perhaps the best part is the moral of its story. If you enjoy fantasy, dark love, and folklore, you will enjoy this book.
Great story and great performance. I would recommend it to any fantasy lovers or beauty and the beast fans ☺
