Release Date: March 14, 2017
New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner spins a thoroughly thrilling Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that readers won’t soon be able to forget.
Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones—and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast.
Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin, or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?
Maybe it's because I still can't stop watching the final trailer for the upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, but it's got me extra excited for Meagan Spooner's Hunted! Based on the summary, Hunted seems quite close to the fairy tale, but I'm sure the retelling will still have its own unique spin. Yeva reminds me of Feyre from Sarah J. Maas's A Court of Thorns and Roses—they're both huntresses who protect their family. And I'm excited to meet the mysterious Beast!
And I just can't help myself. Now that I'm talking about Beauty and the Beast again, I need to watch the gorgeous trailer again! I'm sure you can't resist the temptation either, so I've embedded it below. :)
