The Beasts Heart

Item Description

by Leife Shallcross

YA  JF SHA

A sumptuously magical, brand new take on a tale as old as time - read the Beast's side of the story at long last.

I am neither monster nor man - yet I am both.

I am the Beast.

The day I was cursed to this wretched existence was the day I was saved - although it did not feel so at the time.

My redemption sprung from contemptible roots; I am not proud of what I did the day her father happened upon my crumbling, isolated chateau. But if loneliness breeds desperation then I was desperate indeed, and I did what I felt I must. My shameful behaviour was unjustly rewarded.

My Isabeau. She opened my eyes, my mind and my heart; she taught me how to be human again.

And now I might lose her forever.
