Publisher's Summary

A genderbent retelling of the classic fairytale Beauty and the Beast...

A nerdy gemologist - Bellamy ‘Belle’ DeWinter - ends up the prisoner of a narcissistic yeti named Abigail Snow, who lives in a sparkling mansion made entirely out of blue quartz and whose loyal servants are living statues made out of semiprecious stones. 

When Bellamy starts to think the yeti girl might actually be kind of cute, he freaks out about his unsettling case of Stockholm Syndrome but decides to man up and help Abigail find a way to break the curse. 

Will Bellamy be able to beat the evil sorcerer Agathon at his own game by unlocking the powers and mysteries of the legendary Philosopher’s Stone? 

As cracks begin to form in the rainbow-colored Aurora Borealis quartz stone time is running out!

Handsome and the Yeti

The main story is similar to other fairy tales that was written. You need true love to break the spell.

A tale as old as time!!!

If you are like me you grew up loving everything about Beauty and the Beast. This genderbent fairytale takes it into the present, with twists you never could have expected! You know the story and the plot, but.... with the twists and turns KuroKoneko Kamen adds in its truly a whole new story! I absolutely loved every second! Even my husband enjoyed every second going so far as to ask me to start it over again when it finished so he could hear the parts he missed and enjoy it in its entirety! I refuse to give anything away so everyone can enjoy the twists as they enjoy this story for themselves! But i will say one thing... give this book a listen! It is worth it! Between the humor and twist added it is well worth it! Even the narrator, L. A. Johnson, did nothing but add to this tale something fun and special!

Fun story

Abigail snow is cursed into a yeti by the evil sorcerer Agathon and she lives in a mansion made of blue quartz. Everything is made of some kind of semi-precious Stone. Bellamy has had to move to yeti town Alaska with his sick mom because of his curse. Intrigued you have to Read to find out lol One thing leads to another thing and now he is the prisoner of abigail. So can these two break the curse? Oh yea and here is a nut case on the loose too lol . The plotline thickens . It's a fun story and a redesign and reverse of Beauty and the Beast. Or the idea of that story anyways to me with it being completely fresh new and different. If any of that make sense to you lol it was fun. Action, drama, mystery, and so much more. Voluntarily reviewed a copy and I honestly loved it

cute

Did the story keep me engaged: yes Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes Would I listen to it again: yes Were there any parts I found annoying: the end of each chapter has a "to be continued in chapter #" which feels unnecessary. Story comments: Was a delightfully colourful role-reversed retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Action packed with good pacing and interesting characters. Narrator comments: L. A. Johnson did a good job. There were a couple of places where the narration could have used stronger intonations for the emotions of the scene, but overall no major complaints.

Reversed Beauty and the Beast

This was my first experience with author KuroKoneko Kamen and I'm very happy to have been given the opportunity to listen to her gender bender retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. The story is a well written version with Bellamy (Belle) as a male and a female Yeti as the beast. While similar to the original, this version has added twists and a lot of action. I won't give anything away, but I must add that this is not something for younger listeners (there is a sex scene and adult language. My issues with the story are minor. Each character ended with "to be continued in chapter...." . I found that to be a little redundant. L.A. Johnson did a good job with the narration but it felt like he was just reading the story aloud occasionally and not telling us the story (this was not the case during dialog). Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I was given this audio book at my request and am voluntarily leaving this review.

A Wonderful Twist to a Classic!

I absolutely love KuroKoneko Kamen’s genderbent fairytales! They are so awesome!! I have listened to books 3-6 and loved each one. This time it’s Beauty and the Beast that’s been genderbent. The writing is original and all KuroKoneko’s with traits of Beauty and the Beast so you can easily see the similarities. As with the other fairytales that I have listened to by this author, this one is full of humor, adventure, romance and mystery. If you haven’t had the joy of listening to one of the Genderbent Fairytales series then you are seriously missing out. They are so enjoyable to listen to! From the first one to this one I have listened to them in one sitting because they are that entertaining! I’ve listened/read to many retellings of various fairytales, which are well written in their own right, but I find that I prefer the genderbent ones over all those. The narration by LA Johnson is wonderfully done. He narrates all the tales and I just love his style. He doesn’t overdo the voices or emotions, if anything he kind of under does them, which adds to the enjoyment. A really great series that gives a new and fresh look at some old tales. Pick one up today and you won’t be disappointed! I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great story

A unique spin of the Beauty and the Beast story which at times had me cracking up out loud. The genderbent twist that the author makes on this story made it so enjoyable. The narrator did a wonderful job.

A unique twist on Beauty and the Beast

My favorite fairytale is Beauty and the Beast. This twist makes it even better! I found myself laughing out loud and really enjoying this genderbent twist. Each genderbent story incorporates so many fairytales into one. I loved the different connections to other fairytales. Bellemy has to fight the curse for Abigail. The twist is, she is a Yeti. Bellemy is a strong character, which is similar to the real Belle, who had to be strong. Finding the similarities was a fun hunt and made the twists so much more fun to read. LA Johnson is a great narrator for these genderbent stories. His ability to keep all the characters separate makes the story easy to follow. Mr. Johnson narrates female characters smoothly. Thee narration really enhanced the overall experience of this story.

Sparkling retelling of Beauty and the Beast

When I started this book I was a bit worried it was going to be too predictable but as Belle turned up at the yeti’s mansion things began to get interesting. We find out about how Abigail was cursed and also Bellamy’s story. The setting sounded beautiful, a kaleidoscope of sparkling gemstones set against the snowy forests of Alaska. Enjoyable.

Not my cup of tea

This is a funny well written book, however I wasn’t totally sold on this concept. I was listening to it with a confused expression on my face not really connecting with it.
