In the age of the Faerie Queene, Elizabeth I, Lord Francis Rodermere starts to lay waste to a forest. Furious, the sorceress who dwells there scrawls a curse into the bark of the first oak he fells:
A faerie boy will be born to you whose beauty will be your death.
Ten years later, Lord Rodermere’s son, Beau is born - and all who encounter him are struck by his great beauty. Meanwhile, many miles away in a London alchemist’s cellar lives Randa - a beast deemed too monstrous to see the light of day. And so begins a timeless tale of love, tragedy and revenge.
A stunning retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
"An amazing book...like a box of treasures." (Meg Rosoff)

the BEST fairy tale EVER...
this book had me from the very start, the narration of each character bringing them to life. for me, a little girl feathered and furred, epitomises that true beauty lies beneath.
the twists and turns, the beautiful language and vocabulary, the pace of narration, the blossoming of each character, the storyline taking me between reality and imagination.
I cannot recommend this book more highly, your in for a real treat...... I didn't want it to end.
