I’ve enjoyed Ms. Strading’s writing from Henchgirl so I was excited to read her version of a fairy tale, and it didn’t disappoint. This was one of the best Beauty and the Beast retellings, it’s charm is that it doesn’t feel like the typical fairy tale retelling. The characters were great and I really enjoyed reading this. I would recommend this to fans of fairy tales retelling as overall it was a really good retelling.

A Near Future Retelling of Beauty and the Beast
Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake. Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But something in her comes out wrong.
To save her father from a five-year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.
Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.
