But Yevas fathers misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature hed been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast. Deaf to her sisters protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territorya cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yevas only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin, or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

I finally sat down to finish this book and boy am I glad I did. I've been reading it off and on for months. It kept getting pushed aside for others. I ended up loving the book Hunted though. I definitely recommend it if you like fairytale retellings. I think this is the first one I've read of Beauty & The Beast. I enjoyed the story switching between perspectives so that you can see more of the mindset of Beast and how it changes through the story.

This was a really good fairy tale retelling! There were amazing plot twists, the characters were awesome, and the story was beautifully told! If you like fairytale retellings, fantasy stories, and badass female heroines then this is the story for you.

#LMPBC @suvata @litenthusiast @Laughterhp I finished the second book in our group. No detailed review to avoid spoilers, but I was engaged for the first part and then it seemed to slow way down. I think the targeted YA audience may have had more patience for the pacing than I did. A generous 2/5 🏹s I will have it in the mail to you Kelli early next week.

This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast and although I'm not a fairytale type of girl I really enjoyed this. Yeva kicked ass!!

Finished my pick for #LMPBC Round 5

I have mixed feelings on it. I was really hooked in the beginning and didn‘t want to put it down and then all of a sudden I felt like the story just dragged on unnecessarily. This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I‘m not going to say anymore because I want the rest of the group to form their own opinions.

It's been so long since a book has had me so enthralled A good book doesn't just need engaging writing it needs to make you feel what the characters feel grief, hope, excitement this book achieved that effortlessly.Yes it is a slow story but watching everything unravel and piece back together again never got boring or felt slow But this is definitely one you need to take your time with to appreciate the world and characters that have been created.

BethM I have this one sitting at home, maybe I‘ll have to move it up the stack! 9mo

I really appreciated this book for how originally meaningful it was. Hunted went well beyond the classic beauty and the beast tale and I really enjoyed the lightness of it. Even though there wasn't much romance, it stilled filled my heart and calmed my soul:)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This isn‘t your typical retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”. It has strong influences of Russian folklore, and emphasizes finding yourself, destiny, and magic. One of my favorite parts of the Beauty and the Beast trope is the romance, however I found that this novel had very little of it and left me wishing for more. Overall, this book was well written, but left me a bit unsatisfied.

So I‘m actually kind of burned out on YA fantasy...they‘re all starting to seem the same to me. But this retelling of Beauty and the Beast is really fantastic! I‘m actually not quite done yet, but 75% of the way in, I‘m super invested in both Yeva and the Beast and dying to see how everything will turn out! I‘m reading a library book but might need to get my own copy of this one!

We curse everything, for we are cursed, and we have no arms to shelter her and no lips to press to her hair and above all no words to tell her that we know loss and we know pain and if they were monsters we could fight we would have slain them in her name long ago like the heroes of old. But we are not a hero. We are cursed.
