The folks at Publishers Weekly just awarded a STARRED review to Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge!
The review says, in part;
In this compelling reimagining of “Beauty and the Beast,” Jensen integrates a new plot thread in the form of a third protagonist into the familiar fairy tale. Jensen includes all of the tale’s most significant elements, while still adding new twists and depths. Haunting language and lush descriptions (“the petals are long-dead; they have lost their bright color and velvety texture and curled into crisp, dry cinders...”) engage the senses, making this a memorable, worthy addition to the canon of “Beauty and the Beast” retellings.
This is my first ever starred review from PW, and I couldn't be more thrilled!
Beast unleashes (at last!) on July 10! Meanwhile, read the full review.
