Summary

A modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall, is cursed. Forced to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he can only be freed by love. But at the end of each autumn he is transformed into a beast hell-bent on destruction, and after so many failed attempts, his kingdom and its people are barely holding on.

Harper's life has never been easy, but she's learned to be tough enough to survive the streets of Washington DC. She won't let anything hold her back, not her cerebral palsy or her mother's deteriorating health. But when she is sucked into Rhen's world, nothing is as it seems. Powerful forces are standing against Emberfall... and it will take more than a broken curse to save it from utter ruin.

NOTE: Contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Contains some strong language, violence and sexual references. Harper is kidnapped from our world and taken into the fantasy world against her will (this has happened to numerous girls before her, some of the whom were killed by the beast).

Book of the week

Ambitious & enthralling retelling of the classic fairy tale. Characterisation & world building are strong with great chemistry between the leads & the melding of modern day & fantasy worlds convincing. A very enjoyable read for genre fans.
