This is an INCREDIBLE book. Loosely based on Beauty & the Beast, incorporating greek mythology and old folk lore, it deserves to be read. The main character is different from most 'heroines' --being that she is steadfast, witty, tough, has more than a little malice in her heart, and is UNPREDICTABLE. At first, you're almost waiting to see how they relationship will develop but the author throws in a twist--love triangle, then another and another. The story is entertained with layers of intriguing mystery, love, dark magic--it's actually a bit creepy and dangerous, with great dialogue and characters. Do yourself a favor and read it! Spoiler alert: unless you have superpowers, you're never going to guess the ending...

It's a pretty interesting concept. Just a whole mixup of tales put together in an organized and eloquent fashion.

Twist on the Beauty and the Beast tale. Loved the greek mythology bit thrown in. Decent read with fairy tale elements.

A beautifully penned and vividly imagined retelling of Beauty and the Beast that weaves together Greek myths, a crumbling castle, and a very, very alluring Beast named Ignifex.
