Goodreads Summary:
In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.

Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she's instead somehow sucked into Rhen's cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn't know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what's at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

Ms. Brigid Kemmerer is an amazing storyteller and this sounds amazing!

What are you guys waiting on this week?


  1. I can't wait to get my hands on this one as well!

    1. Yesss, so much excitement! I've only read her contemporary works so this will be a fun change :D

  2. You know, I have never read a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I need to work on that. Other than A.G.'s new YA, Stained, which is still pretty far away, I guess I'm waiting for the third Bear and the Nightingale book. I can't remember what it is called. 😁

    1. *gasps* There's a ton of B&tB retelling out there, you have to try one!

      I know that series, hope you love the third book <3
