Review quote

Everything you'd want in a retelling of a classic fairy-tale: a finely drawn fantasy world, a heroine rarely seen in fiction, and a tortured hero with a secret. I have only one complaint: I wish the sequel were already available! * Jodi Picoult on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * An intensely original retelling. Full of fierce new characters, wicked magic, and wondrous amounts of heart, Brigid Kemmerer doesn't just tell a story, she builds an entire world that you will never want to leave * Stephanie Garber on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * I couldn't get this creative, suspenseful take on Beauty and the Beast out of my head * Sara Holland on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * The Beauty and The Beast retelling I've been waiting for. The world Brigid has crafted is so beautifully dark, filled with wild adventure and a modern-day heroine every reader will find a bit of themselves in * Alexandra Christo on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * A complex, creative, and compelling reimagining of Beauty and the Beast * School Library Connection, starred review on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * A fast-paced, richly detailed feminist epic * Kirkus Reviews, starred review on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * A fresh twist on an old story ... Fans of Sarah J. Maas will be eager for this one * Booklist on A CURSE SO DARK AND LONELY * A wonderful sequel, Emberfall and Syhl Shallow is a believable world, that captures and draws you in. * Children's Book Sequels *
