Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!
Adorable dragons are necessary for everything, but this one is keeping her eye out for more awesome books :D
Today I’m waiting on something pretty far out ;-).
Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.
So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.
Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?
As soon as I saw Hunted, I was intrigued. I love fairytale retellings that are a bit different, so I really hope that Beauty and the Beast stay antagonistic and don’t fall for each other. I’m considering this one for the subscription box, what do you think?
