Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. 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. Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of 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?
Okay. Seriously. How good does this book sound??? Not only is HUNTED a retelling of my all time favorite fairy tale – it’s written by one of my fave authors, Meagan Spooner! Spooner has been a apart of the team that has brought me (and, I suppose us) the STARBOUND series. To say I’m excited about this book doesn’t even begin to cover it. Lucky me, I’ll get to binge on all things BEAUTY AND THE BEAST in 2017. Not only will we finally be graced with a live action film – we will get a proper retelling by a great author that sounds amazing?! YES! All the yes! BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is near and dear to a lot of us, I am beyond sure that Spooner will deliver the goods. Do yourself a favor, put HUNTED on the TBR list, and join me in counting the days!
