Summary

When pressure from his materialistic children turns Claude into a thief, it is down to his youngest daughter to set things right. Angelique agrees to take her father’s place as prisoner to what she is told is a hideous beast.

Angelique soon discovers that the so-called beast is nothing more than Rosalie, a princess cursed to remain trapped in a castle, unless the curse can be broken, something she assures her is impossible.

Angelique does not believe in the impossible, and sets about trying to find a way to save her new friend, who she is rapidly growing to love.

Eye of the Beholder is the first in a series of queer fairy-tale retellings in C H Clepitt’s Magic Mirror collection.

Brilliant story

I was lucky enough to have read this story as a beta reader so was looking forward to listening to it and I was not disappointed. The story itself is a great twist on beauty and the beast with a nice lesbian twist and the narrator brought it to life so well

Reimagined Fairy Tale

I love that fairy tales are still written and updated. They are such an effective way to mirror society.
This story impressed me for excellent character development in a short time, beautiful narration, and making an old tale feel very fresh.

A welcome take on a classic story

This is my second book by this author, and they have a great way of using a voice that suits the story of the character. The last book was written in a very modern and relatable tone, while this time the more formal dialogue suits the fairytale being told. This story was a sweet take on an old story, definitely ear candy for the LGBTQ crowd which I enjoyed, and it is told in a very wholesome way. I would have liked it to be a bit longer, but I think it paves the way nicely for the series that it seems to be building towards.

Twisty and Turney

This was provided to me to review. While a short piece, this had some good substance to it.. The storyline seemed like it was going to be predictable but things got changed up and left the reader looking for more. All in all it was a very enjoyable listen, with hopes of other tales to come in a series. Well done author in bringing me into your world and inviting me back. See you soon!
