Publisher's Summary

What if Belle's mother cursed the Beast? As Old as Time is the third book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways.

When Belle touches the Beast's enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle's mind - memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her mother is none other than the beautiful enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making.

Surprised me that I liked it

It surprised me that I ended up liking it decently enough. At first, it seemed to drag on to get to the point. But, once there, it became a little thriller. I liked the middle of the book very much. The end was definitely "twisted" in a way. But, I wish it ended less cheesy and more fairytale story like.
I think it would be a great next read, unless you have something else you know you'll enjoy more. It's good enough to pull up when you don't have other things to read.
Narrator was great.

Amazing!

I really loved this version. It not only told the story in a different perspective, but it connected everything somehow.

Bravo!

Beautifully told! Bravo! I love the depths this story took. the gritty enchantment, the honest fear humanity would have. I hope to read more twisted tales, it would be such a shame to not have any more.

Very Good

I give this book four stars
I liked this book because it was an exiting twist that Liz Braswell has come up with but on some parts of the book I did get a little lost but besides that it was an amazing story and I recommend this to middle aged children ( because some of the content can be inappropriate for small children I loved this book and it had me on my toes and I thought the author did a very good job on this book!
