Meet the Author

After the sort of introverted childhood you would expect from a writer, Liz earned a degree in Egyptology at Brown University and then promptly spent the next ten years producing video games. Finally she caved into fate and wrote Snow and Rx under the name Tracy Lynn, followed by The Nine Lives of Chloe King series under her real name, because by then the assassins hunting her were all dead. She also wrote A Whole New World, the first book in the new A Twisted Tale series. She lives in Brooklyn with a husband, two children, a cat, a part-time dog, three fish and five coffee trees she insists will start producing beans any day.

This is the second book that I have read from "The Twisted Tales," the first book I read was A Whole New World. I definitely enjoyed this book better. This one was less of a novelization of the movie and more of an actual retelling. This book was twisted and dark. There were definitely some creepy moments, and times when I was really shocked by the twists. I really enjoyed reading this retelling and can't wait to read more Beauty and the Beast retellings.

The concept is interesting, and I liked how Liz Braswell wrote about Maurice's earlier life and how he met Belle's mother. Though I feel as if the book was a lot longer than it should've been. The story takes a really dark and messed-up turn near the end and it was then that I was thinking, Oh, no wonder this isn't really considered a book for children. The only thing I loved and enjoyed about this book was the interactions between Belle and Beast, especially after he saves her from the wolves. You see their friendship and romantic feelings develop at a good pace and it's so sweet and adorable. Pretty much the only thing that made this book worthwhile for me. Other than that, this book is more like something I would find on a fanfiction website. 3.5/5

This story in my opinion was the most relevant and the most beautiful depiction of the classical story. Although based off the Disney version it was still a masterpiece in my eyes.
