Notes From Your Bookseller

Author Soman Chainani breathes new life into 12 well-known fairytales in this pulse-pounding collection of richly reimagined classics. Dark and daring, Beasts and Beauty is as enchanting as it is captivating, with beautiful prose that readers won’t want to put down until the very last page.

You think you know these stories, don’t you?

You are wrong.

You don’t know them at all.

Twelve tales, twelve dangerous tales of mystery, magic, and rebellious hearts. Each twists like a spindle to reveal truths full of warning and triumph, truths that free hearts long kept tame, truths that explore life . . . and death.

A prince has a surprising awakening . . .                           

A beauty fights like a beast . . .

A boy refuses to become prey . . .

A path to happiness is lost. . . . then found again.
