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.

Wonderful original story for Beaty & the Beast fan

Wonderful original story about Belle's time in the Beast's castle before the curse is broken. I must say the story intrigued me when I first heard about it being a voracious reader like Belle and also a big fan of the Beauty & the Beast story. Listening to Jenna Augen's lovely British accent made the story even more delightful. The story had a worthwhile moral to it that wasn't overbearing but portrayed with just the right amount of prodding making the true meaning of Belle's journey more poignant. I enjoyed revisiting the world of Beauty & the Beast immensely!

I wanted to punch Belle in the face!

This story is sooo good. I started it immediately after BATB. After I finished BATB..I was totally in love with Beast. So..in this story..when Belle started tripping..and bein all asshattery with Beast...I kinda wanted to punch her right smack in the face. Every time she went to Nevermore..I got PISSED. Meanwhile, they're left at the castle TRYING THEIR BEST to make her ungrateful azz happy and comfortable. Ugh..after her little performance..the ONLY reason I even wanted her to make it back..was so that the gang wouldn't die. Other than that...she coulda left her lil stubborn behind LOST IN THAT DAMN BOOK. I didn't even care. All I cared about was Beast's happiness. Oooweee..and when it looked like she was about to give Onree(sp?) the necklace Beast gave her.....Mannn..I had to get up and walk it off. I was HEATED..FORREAL. I was like "Bye, Felicia...keep yo azz in nevermore..ole ungrateful hag!"

It was a really good book. I almost forgot it was just a book. My attitude was off the charts.

If you were left wanting a little more... you'll find it here!

If you were left wanting a little more after seeing Beauty and the Beast in theaters... you'll find it here!

The only draw back is it took me a few chapter to feel immersed in the story, but once your drawn into the magic you'll never want to leave. The title does the book justice, I was truly lost in a book!

This book met every Disney expectation, well done!

Good for a younger audience

It was an interesting story, but probably best for a younger audience - it felt like a children's story. The narrator did a good job with character voices, but the rest of the narration was overly dramatic. She should remember that if every word is read in such a tense, dramatic voice - it completely loses the effect in the parts that actually are supposed to be dramatic.
