New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner spins a thoroughly thrilling Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that readers won’t soon be able to forget.

Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones—and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and 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. The Beast.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical 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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Saskia Maarleveld takes on the majority of the narration, telling the story through Yeva’s eyes. She compellingly depicts Yeva’s bravery and resilience and then switches to Yeva’s sisters and the Beast, portraying them with subtle variations in tone and cadence. Her gruesome descriptions of the hunt and the cold are spine-tingling. In interspersed chapters, narrator Will Damron’s Beast fittingly growls and moans as he reveals his thoughts and fights to reclaim his humanity…The narrators complement each other and draw listeners into the story.”

    VOYA (starred review)

  • “This emotionally complex story satisfies. Spooner writes eloquently about magic, her world building is excellent, and the book’s characters are nuanced and well drawn.”

    Publishers Weekly

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
