Rating: 4.5 stars
Of Beast and Beauty is a retelling of the classic fairy tale Beauty and Beast. It is also set in the future. However there is a twist “beauty” is actually the princess; Princess Isra doesn’t realize that she is beautiful she thinks that she is blind because of an accident. Gem is the “beast” he is the one that is being held prisoner by “beauty”.
While Of Beast and Beauty sticks to the main points of the story Stacey Jay puts her own unique twist on the story and makes it her own. Of Beast and Beauty is an unique and wonderful read. I would suggest this to any fan of Beauty and the Beast. However there is some language in the book but it is still worth a read.
