Editorial Reviews


"Beauty of the Beast is a dark, sensual and haunting retelling. There's a shadowy, gothic feel throughout the book. Memorable characters keep the reader on an emotional roller-coaster. The author paints sexual, harsh, yet beautiful pictures with her words. Isabelle is one of my favorite heroines of all time."  - Night Owl Reviews *TOP PICK*


I can't even with this novel - and in a good way. 

Rachel L. Demeter has yet to disappoint with her outstanding writing techniques, and pulling a reader into her work. Beauty of the Beast was an outstanding read that drew me in, and kept me there. Seeing as Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favorite fairy tales, this novel was a must read for me. The cover art was outstandingly beautiful, and really captured the original tale of the beast that lives in the broken down castle, forever broken, and forgotten, a human being resting in the shadows where he watches the world pass him by. Other than a lone servant that has stood by his side for twenty-five years, Adam Delacroix, is a mysterious, powerful character who was absolutely stunning to fall in love with."  - Battery Operated Book Blog

"Another Fairy Tale grows up, gains some dark realism and proves that without love, even a saint can become a beast from within their heart and that love can make anyone beautiful in the eyes of those who love them. Rachel L. Demeter has shown her writing chops once again as she turns an already dark tale into an edgy read that will rock you back on your heels." - Tome Tender Book Blog

"Absolutely beautiful. A perfect retelling of one of the most famous fairy tales. This version doesn't involve talking teapots or enchanted roses, but this retelling is still beyond magical." - LYLY 5 STAR BOOKS

"5++ enchanting stars. This book is so beyond anything I could have ever expected. The author recreated the original Beauty and the Beast story with a sexy and dark edge and I completely LOVED it.

Rachel L. Demeter's writing is just beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, my kindle is literally FILLED with highlights." - Katie's Book Blog

"I loved Ms. Demeter's Finding Gabriel, so I when I saw her Beauty of the Beast, I jumped at the chance to read it! The fact that it was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, my favorite fairy tale, only made me want to read it even more - and wow - was it good. Although good is too weak a word to describe it, it really was amazing and I positively loved it!" - A Hopeless Romantic's Booklandia

"Once I started reading it... I. Could. Not. Stop!" - The Booknatics

"This story is darker and grittier than the story from your childhood. Fairy tales don't get much better than this.

Beauty of the Beast has unbelievable character development. There are no magical teacups or candelabras in this story. But there is a sweet, sometimes poignant development of an enduring love that transforms all. A beautiful, bold retelling of a timeless classic that, like the original story, gives us hope for tomorrow. We all need that. I can't wait to see what childhood tale Rachel Demeter breathes life into next!" - Amy ~ Love at 1st Read

"Speechless! That's what I felt when I'm done reading this book. I was amazed how beautiful it was flawlessly written turning a classic story into this edgy, dark and sexy story is just brilliant. The pacing is just right and the characters are well defined! This is my first book by Author Rachel L. Demeter and what an introduction it was. - Myla ~ Goodreads

"This. This is what Beauty and the Beast should have been. It's probably what it would have been if it had been written for an adult audience. Isabelle was the perfect heroine. She was the perfect combination of contradictions. She was so very strong but at the same time, very fragile. She was extremely brave yet skittish. She loved beauty but also saw the beauty in flaws. She was exactly what I envisioned our beloved Belle would be like. And Prince Adam... you want to just weep for him but at the same time, you're rooting for the handsomely scarred prince.

THIS is what Rachel L. Demeter was meant to do. These fairy tale retellings. It blew me out of the water and I'm so excited about this little sub-genre but I know I can't read something from someone else because it just won't be as good. Just have to wait for the next one from Demeter. And it won't be a patient wait!" - Little Miss Bookmark

"Rachel's take on Beauty & The Beast truly pulled me into a magical place. Even though it was shrouded in darkness & layered with pain & sorrow, it also wrapped me in the most gorgeous blanket of love, acceptance & trust.

I found myself so absorbed in the story that time flew by in a blink. The story, plot twists & character development were so well paced & effortless, that the characters became easy to connect with from the moment I met them, tugging a whole range of emotions from within. I felt their heartache & anguish, but also rejoiced in their dreams & hopes." - Unbound Book Reviews
