I love, love, love the twist that beast is a woman. It really gave the story that modern feel. Both Calliope (beast) and her love, Bastian are great characters. I really like the addition of his daughter too. It ties in with the classic story. The romance is sweet rather than intense or hot. I would have liked the story to be longer, to really get into the plot because in certain places it is a bit rushed. But that’s a minor detail. I really enjoyed this book.
If you like the retelling of fairytales, then The Crimson Curse is a highly recommended read!
