A great 87 page retelling of Beauty and the Beast

Rose of Prophecy by author Hope Ann had been on my radar for quite a few months. But knowing that it was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, I had some reservations about reading it. Although I once fell in love with one rendition of the well-known fairy tale (thank you, Disney, for the tale as old as time!), the "captive women falling in love with their captors" motif doesn't exactly garner my greatest appreciation. However, upon my recent resolution to start reading more fantasy again, I decided to finally give this novella a try. And I must say, the author's handling of the beast's predicament put me more at ease with this version of the story: a retelling infused with a scriptural theme. The development of the first leg of the story made me feel as though I'd been plunged into a world I was already supposed to be a little familiar with but wasn't. But I caught on before long, and though it took some time before the story really gained my interest, it eventually did. I like how there's a different reason for this Beauty being "Beauty," and, hey, I'm all for authors including characters named Nadine, even if they play minor roles. (Heeheehee.) This quick read turned out to be an enjoyable stop on my Gradual Quest to More Fantasy.
