Review: Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge

Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge by Lisa Jensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An excellent and disturbing re-telling of "a tale as old as time". We're told the servants are turned into household objects when the prince is cursed, but what do we really know about them, the ordinary people who populate the Beast's domain?

Lucy is one such individual, a maidservant in the castle, sharing the curse. This is her story and it's intriguing, and horrifying, and shows us Beauty and the Beast in an entirely new way. I enjoyed it immensely, but the difficult subject matter of sexual assault and revenge will not sit well with some readers.
