Knife's entire existence has been as twisted as his flesh and his face. The only thing beautiful in his life is his sister. When Gwennie is obliged to turn a suitor down because she fears to leave her brother to the brutality of their village, Knife is desperate for anything to ensure her happiness. Her suitor's cousin offers him a way out, but it won't be easy. Aerie-Smith has been cursed to walk upright in the form of a beast, and his beloved village suffers from the same spell. Aerie-Smith offers Gwen a trousseau and some hope, if only Knife will keep him company on his island for the span of a year and perform one "regrettable task" at year's end. Knife is unprepared for the form the island's curse takes on his own misshapen body. In one moment of magic, he is given the body of his dreams, and he discovers that where flesh meets spirit and appearance meet reality, sometimes the only place to find truth is in the darkness of a lover's arms.… (mere)

A brief, sweet tearjerker to read on a rainy afternoon! I normally prefer a lot more depth in my worldbuilding but this is just a quick romantic romp. ( )

This is a fantastic retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Aerie-Smith, through a youthful indiscretion, has been cursed to live life as a beast. Naef (Knive) is a tormented soul who has suffered enormously due to birth defects and the treatment of his fellow villagers.

It is quite interesting actually as both of the MC's could be classified as a beast, but also as a beauty... Their relationship is beautifully written, drawing us into their lives.

Whilst the story doesn't have the 'perfect' happy ending, it does have a very happy ending...(and if you want to know what I mean, read the book lol) ( )

The most amazing fairy tale with the most amazing HEA :)
Loved everything about it! ( )

I wish I could give 6, 7...10 stars! I F*CKING LOVE this book!

While one may see it as a re-telling of the "Beauty and the Beast" fairytale, it is a richer, deeper, adult version that shows the redemptive power of love as well as its hidden cost.

Go,read...you won't regret it! ( )

I'm not the biggest AL fan, her writing and stories don't usually do it for me.

This is my fave book of hers and she's never been able to replicate it.

This is a MlM retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but with 1 Beast and 1 Monster.

It's a good book, and its only flaw is that I wish it was longer because I enjoyed it so much.

Many lessons to be had here, just like with the original B&B story and the Disney retelling.

A definitely good read, I'm glad I reread it.


TW: past rape, suicide attempts, crippling self doubt and self loathing, attempt rape, deaths, etc. ( )
