Bo and the Beast Cassie Rose

Description

In this futuristic retelling of the classic fairy tale, Bo is the leader of a group of refugees with no homes to return to. It is the time after a great war between the inhabitants of earth and creatures from another planet. Now the humans rely on scavenging the war-torn remains of the blast zones to keep themselves alive. When Bo's father is late returning from a hunt, she knows something has gone wrong. Fearing that he might have taken her request to bring back a now-extinct rose seriously, Bo sets off to find him in the Dead Woods. Only, when she does find her father, she also finds an enemy that was thought to have left the planet long ago. Bo is forced to choose between her freedom or her father, and her refugees or a creature that killed so many humans with its bare teeth that it was dubbed the Beast.

I liked the Beauty and the Beast references but I feel that this book was missing a little something.

The references were so fun to write! I loved trying to give them a sci-fi spin! :) Thank you again for reading, and for your comments!

My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast so I suppose that it had a good impact on my liking of Bo and the Beast. I do think that there could have been something more in this book. I just feel like there is a piece missing.

This story beginning kind of reminds me of The Fifth Wave, which I suppose is a good thing, considering how popular that book is. I love the fact that the writing seems like the writer isn't trying too hard or too little. Some books are just terrible to read because you can just tell that they were trying too hard.

Thank you so much for reading! I'm glad you thought my writing wasn't too overworked. I really don't enjoy that writing style, either, so it's good to hear that I've avoided that. :) I've actually never read The Fifth Wave, but that's cool that my book reminds you of it! For some reason, I always thought it was about zombies, and I'm not a huge zombie fan. But, since it seems to be about aliens, I'm more interested now. I'll have to look it up! ;)

I've read many different retellings of Beauty and the Beast but this has got to be one of my favourites. It has some of the memorable scenes from the original tale but also has its own that make it different and unique which is good because if it was just the same as the original it wouldn't be its own story and would become boring. Because of the differences it makes it more interesting to read and makes the reader want to know how it differs from the original and personally, it made me fall in love with the tale of Beauty and the Beast all over again.

Wow, thank you so much! What a lovely comment! I am so happy that I was able to make you love the tale over again! It's a great fairytale with a beautiful message, and I had a lot of fun putting my own spin on it. Thank you again for reading! :D

This story is such an amazing re-telling of the classic tale that's as old as time :) I love the modern take on the situations and scenarios that keep readers guessing, yet the way the characters stay true to the original is beautiful. You've done a fantastic job writing this, Cassie :) ♥
