Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’ half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.

In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who’s a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again. But fairy tales aren’t pretty things, and they don’t always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own . . . brothers who share a dark secret. And she’ll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns. Download and start listening now!

    " The setting is like shrek! The story is very original. The climax was to die for-i was on edge the whole time, waiting for the suspense to stop! Blue and Mira are so perfect. Blue's curse is so sad; i always felt so bad for him just reading it. I especially like how the ending went :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Scott | 12/18/2013

    " I liked this book. It definitely had elements of danger and comedy! The story made me look a fairy tales in a whole new way. Felix was a surprising villian because I fell for him just like Mira did. Good luck Blue and Mira! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jada | 11/27/2013

    " This book was wonderful and magical and I really don't know how to put into words how it's made me feel. Even though it's left me feeling breathless and hurt, it's also left me feeling giddy and glad and happy that some stories do have happy endings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan Gonzalez | 11/9/2013

    " The ending still left some unanswered questions, but all in all, it was a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Markelle Grabo | 9/25/2013

    " Refreshing and intriguing take on fairy tales. I enjoyed the writing style as well, although the main character was borderline irritating at times. However, the amazing ending made me reconsider my opinion of her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faiza | 5/18/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. I gave it a 4 because from time to time I just wanted to shake Mira! At times she was just so stubborn, can't you just listen to what EVERYONE is telling you??!!?? Other than that and the fact that Blur had blue hair!??! I really enjoy the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shana | 3/27/2013

    " This book is not recommended. The characters are not interesting. The premise might have been intriguing at first but the ending and relationship-buildup were boring. I kept reading just to find out if it had a promising ending. Didn't happen. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 3/25/2013

    " Excellent audio for fans of paranormal romance, this is a suspenseful retelling of fairy tales about a forbidden love that can kill. "

    " An interesting take on Fairy Tales. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 5/31/2012

    " review to come, but if you are thinking of even maybe reading... READ IT!!!! unless you don't like love stories, then don't read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 4/15/2012

    " This was a concept that I wondered how much I'd like it when i started read it, but give it time it'll grow on you. You're thinking that Bella's going to be stuck in her story line with no real choices, no matter how hard she tries, but she figures out a way in the end to live life on her own terms. "

    " The book was amazing. The way the faairy tales are mixed together makes it much more interesting "
