Willow is having dreams. The dreams are about the beast who lives in the forest. Now the time has come for her to become the bride of the beast and she must break the curse that the beast and others are under. She has three days.
I so love reading remakes or another version of the fairy tales and this reaches the my expectations of the story.
Our heroine, Willow, has been dreaming of the beast months before the annual Harvest Festival and instead of fearing her destiny as his bride she embraces it. Her courage and quick mind help her overcome the obstacles she faces in her journey to breaking the curse that has encompassed the kingdom.
Since it is a novella, if I tell you much more I’ll spoil the story and I don’t want to do that. I will say that I was a little nervous starting this book because I feared we may stray into Beastiality territory and that is not my gig. But never fear Ruby Dixon, the excellent storyteller that she doesn't take us there. The beast is what you picture him to be for the most part but the bond the couple forge is something definitely of beauty.
I give it 5 Beastly stars!
I was expecting as a Beauty and the Beast retelling that it would center around her having to make him fall in love to break the spell/curse. The twists that she used to get there and the subtle details really made the story. I thought it was genius on her part to have the roses snag her dress kind of as a forewarning to Willow of her fate and the fate of those before her. Having her so willing to accept what has been dealt to her when those around her are so pessimistic showed how strong she was. Her determination to get through the situation and to win wasn't only heroic but it also gave a message that girls can do great things, very girl power. I also liked how she was not positive she could do it but she still believed and even if it was the last three days she'd ever have not only was she going to give it her all but she was going to have some fun with it too.
My only thing is that I wished they would've given more detail as to why she could always feel his skin when in reality he couldn't have been all beast. Maybe at the end they could clear it up. I did like that they there were things left to the reader to imagine especially since we had to see it without Willow's visual perspective. It made us feel as she was feeling. Good Job Ms. Dixon!
I'm glad I gave Dixon a try. This was my first time reading the author, and she spins quite the tale.
I can't wait for the next book of this beautiful series...
