"They said that love was terrifying and tender, wild and sweet, and none of it made any sense. But now I knew that every mad word was true."
This was a unique combination of mythology and a retelling of the classic fairytale, Beauty and the Beast. I have read several "retellings" over the past year or so and this one was one of the best that I have read in awhile. It was filled with so many unique and unexpected aspects and had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved the description of both the characters and the world that the author created. I'm still not sure how I felt about the ending, but I very much enjoyed the book none the less.
