Synopsis

Princess Anastasia Rose dreams of attending school, but her plans are put on hold when war begins between her father and the beastly lord of a nearby castle in the mountains.
Prince Alistair isn’t an ordinary dragon. He’s a shifter afflicted by a curse, unable to become human again until he finds his true love. When a mortal king’s adventurers trespass in Alistair’s territory to steal a rare flower, the prince decides to steal a valuable prize of his own.

***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
I adore fairy tale retellings.  It helps us keep our love for the originals alive. With the renewed fascination of Beauty and the Beast, I believe that older fans would love this rendition of the original tale.  Vivianne’s portrayal of beauty, Princess Anastasia, and Beast, Prince Allister is impressive.  She captured the change of emotions and created characters who are both likable and endearing.  
 
In this rendition, a dragon is terrorizing Princess Anastasia’s father’s kingdom.  With reason of course.  The Queen is ill and needs a special rose that only blooms in the dragon’s realm to save her.  The King tirelessly sends scouts to retrieve this mythical rose but is thwarted by the dragon.  Soooooooo…  he does what he think is best and sends dragon slayers to bring down the beast and capture this elusive rose.
 
Faithful to the original story, we have magic, a mystical home that is alive and a surly beast that needs to find true love.  In this, I was entranced.  I did enjoy Savage’s retelling and highly recommend it to the adult lovers of The Beauty and the Beast!!
 
5 Stars and a tip of my Nerd Girl hat.
