Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman.But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast.Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin, or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

"I accidentally bought this book, thinking it was on my tbr, so I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I did. It has enemies-to-lovers, nearly fatal misunderstandings, and I couldn't have come up with a better ending myself. Yeva is a strong-willed heroine, and the beast had me at war with my emotions. The plot twist wasn't hard to guess, but I still loved it."
"Ok, so I can’t figure out how to post too books,but I also want to talk about Sherwood by the same author. These books are criminally underrated and I’m dying to talk to someone about them, especially because I only finished Sherwood last night. If you have read these books what did you think? If not then you should really give them a try, they’re definitely booktok worthy. For those curious as to what they are about, they are fairy tale retellings with major twist. "
"I loved it so much. Had such a soft ending and such a fierce connection between them. It’s the basic capture the beauty but instead she falls in love much later in the book. So so good. Would recommend to everyone. "
"This is my second book of the series, and I'm taking a wild guess thinking that the theme of this series is "skin-crawling-ly annoying, heroines who are determined to make you hate them no matter how hard you try not to..."<br/><br/>They are so ******* indecisive throughout 99% of the book...more than enough to make you stop reading. <br/><br/>It's repulsive. I hate it."
