What if Beauty became the Beast? Discover a new angle on the classic fairytale in this fantasy retelling that's perfect for anyone who can't get enough of Beauty and the Beast.
 
In the city of Yuan, the blind Princess Isra is raised to be a human sacrifice. Her death will ensure her city’s vitality.
 
In the desert, a mutant beast named Gem fights to save his people, known as the Monstrous, from starvation.
 
Neither dreams that, together, they can return balance to their worlds.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal, August 2013:"A satisfying read for fans of romantic fantasy."Justine, August/September 2013:"The romance in this book is as lush, wild and thorny as the magic roses that protect the doomed city of Yuan! This re-imagined version of classic Beauty and the Beast is all the more addicting because the two man characters are misfits who slowly develop their love through shared goals, secret whispers and intense chemistry."From the Hardcover edition.
