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.

In case you missed the memo, bioluminescence is so very Swoonworthy!

I have so many feelings about this book! This was a rollercoaster of all the emotions! I absolutely love Bo and Adam, and I couldn't put this book down until I knew how it ended! Which, that ending tore my heart out and shoved it back into my chest! The characters were so well drawn and I seriously loved Bo and Adam! I think I liked Adam's arc the best, but they both had such great depth and growth. Finding out bits of The Beast's past was the best trail of breadcrumbs a reader could ask for.

Amazing characters and lush description, I could not ask for more! A wonderful read!

I am very much liking the start of this story! I love the familiar beauty and the beast feel but yet it's so different - can't wait to meet the beast haha the descriptions are vivid! I caught a minor detail "passed" prob should be "past" .. can't remember which page but it's just a small thing :)

Thank you so much! I'm excited for you to meet the Beast! He was a really fun character to write. ;) Thanks for the catch on the typo! I try to do read-throughs to weed them out, but I always miss some! So it's always helpful to have extra pairs of eyes! :D

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I think it was very creative and I can't wait to read more should it come! My favorite aspect was that you were learning with Bo as she uncovers the truth (about Adam and also how she feels). You fall in love with the characters, and that is one of the most important things in writing; attachment. Great work!

Similar Stories : Compared to the regular Beauty and the Beast, I think it's quite a unique spin. At first, I was sure I would hate this because I'm not an "alien person", but WOW. This sure turned that perspective around!

Yay, I'm glad I could draw you into an alien story despite you not being an alien person! :D I'm really glad you like the characters, too! I had a lot of fun creating them, so it makes me happy to see others having fun reading about them! Thank you so much for reading! :D

The visualization is really amazing! Everything is described just enough to get a clear picture, but it's not overdone and cumbersome. I'm enjoying the narration style too!
