Craving Beauty
(A Wylder Tale, #1)
by Jennifer Silverwood
YA Dark Fantasy
Paperback & ebook, 239 pages
October 31st 2015

Vynasha has spent the last four years tending her mother’s roses and looking after her nephew. The fire that killed their family has left her scarred and put Wyll on the brink of death. Soon the first frost will come down from the mountains and she knows this winter will be his last.

Until a strange beggar appears on the road, telling her of the majikal Source that can heal her Wyll. With nothing left to lose, Vynasha braves the forbidden Wylder Mountains to seek out a cure and her fate.

A lost kingdom is uncovered by an equally lost girl, but the castle is not abandoned as she believes. Shadows cloaking unseen eyes watch. Tapestries whisper from the hidden corners, wondering if the one to break their curse has come. And a hungry beast waits, ready to devour her soul.

My Review

This Beauty and The Beast retelling is worth the read. I liked the main character Vyanasha. She has suffered tragedy that left her scarred and her cousin Wyll one step away from death with each passing day, yet she is still full of hope and has emerged from it a stronger, more determined person.
Desperate to stave off looming death, she sets off on a quest to find a cure on the word of a ‘beggar’…desperate times call for desperate meaures! The quest will lead her into the domain of the Prince aka the Beast and she will have to utilise her wits to get her out of this precarious situation so she could fulfill her quest.

Her strength, courage, resolve and her very sanity would be tested and she would need to draw on all the skills in her arsenal and then some. This is a story of love and loss, sacrifice and finding the strength within oneself to beat the odds.
