This week I am waiting on
Hunted (Hunted #1) by Meagan Spooner
Publication Date: March 14th 2017
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?
Who doesn’t love a good re-telling. Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favourite tales and I am so excited about this book. Again, with most of the re-tellings I’ve read I’ve always appreciated the way an author takes the components that defined the tale and yet still manage to create a unique and fascinating tale that retains it’s own individuality. I can’t wait to see where Yeva’s journey takes her as the beauty faces the beast.
What’s your most anticipated book?
