Publisher's Summary

Hidden in the Beast's library is a very mysterious book. Belle is about to discover it and visit a glittering new world. But is everything in that world what it seems? And will Belle be able to find her way home? Or will the story take hold of her - and never let her go?

Smart, bookish Belle, a captive in the Beast's castle, has become accustomed to her new home and has befriended its inhabitants. When she comes upon Nevermore, an enchanted book unlike anything else she has seen in the castle, Belle finds herself pulled into its pages and transported to a world of glamour and intrigue. The adventures Belle has always imagined, the dreams she was forced to give up when she became a prisoner, seem within reach again.

The charming and mysterious characters Belle meets within the pages of Nevermore offer her sparkling conversation, a life of dazzling Parisian luxury, and even a reunion she never thought possible. Here Belle can have everything she has ever wished for. But what about her friends in the Beast's castle? Can Belle trust her new companions inside the pages of Nevermore? Is Nevermore's world even real? Belle must uncover the truth about the book before she loses herself in it forever.

Naive Belle

The reader was wonderful. The story? Nice idea, but that all goes out the window once you realize where the writer took our beloved brilliant inteligent character Belle.

I found myself cringing every moment Belle went against her instincts and "fell into a trap". She literally had to be saved by an insect who TOLD her how to free herself. Come on!

It is so disheartening to have listened to a story that "dumbed" Belle. To be honest, it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth knowing this is going to be a story others will hear and perhaps read before they get to know her in Beauty and The Beast.

Beautifully Written

The way this book was written was in great taste. It was descriptive but they didn't go too heavy-handed which I always appreciate. They also didn't go to cheesy, which is very easy to do when you're involved with anything Disney. If you're a fan of the Beauty and the Beast story I think you'll love this one. The voice actress did a great job switching between characters. I found that I could tell which character she was speaking in the voice of most, if not all of the time. As a single voice actor that can be tricky to do. Worth a read if you need something to lighten your heart.

Disappointing

This book had a decent plot and would have been a good story on it’s own, but using the characters from Beauty and the Beast ruined it for me. There were contradictions to the story we know and love and Belle was extremely hard to like. In the Disney movies Belle is intelligent, kind, patient, and strong. The Belle in this book is self centered, gullible, and at times plain annoying. Most of the story revolves around her wallowing in self pity. I love Disney’s versions of Beauty and the Beast and was excited for this book, unfortunately for me it fell flat.

Quaint Story

I was surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this story. It was different and exciting, but of course I LOVE the Beauty and the Beast story already. The narrator had an amazing voice for this story and did an excellent job!

Interesting secondary storyline

I love how it followed Beauty and the Beast. The secondary story line is very interesting. It adds to the story of Beauty and the Beast in such a unique way. If you love Beauty and the Beast then you'll love this book!
