Beauty of the Beast

Beauty of the Beast - Rachel L. Demeter ARC Review: Beauty of The Beast (Fairy Tale Retellings) by Rachel L. Demeter

What gives Beauty and the Beast the right to be called a classic? Could it be that to this day the story is just as profound as when it was first written? Perhaps, it's the many interpretations of how beauty blossoms out of ugliness and pain. Or is it the hope laid out that even in life's darkest moments, we can endure. Beauty of the Beast captures many of the central elements of this haunting story with more of a dark edge to this fantastical fairy tale. The names may be different, the story more tarnished but the message of acceptance and beauty still resides inside of Ms. Demeter's version of this inspiration tale.
