Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dazzling…has the power to exhilarate.” Publishers Weekly
“McKinley reexplores and reexpands on the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. This is not a sequel, but a new novelization that is fuller bodied, with richer characterizations and a more mystical, darker edge…Readers will be enchanted, in the best sense of the word.” Booklist
“[McKinley] has embellished and embodied the whys, whos, and hows of the magic forces at work. The telling is layered like rose petals with subtleties, sensory descriptions, and shadow imagery. Every detail holds significance…McKinley is at home in a world where magic is a mainstay and, with her passion for roses, she’s grafted a fully dimensional espalier that is a tangled, thorny web of love, loyalty, and storytelling sorcery.” School Library Journal
“Luxuriant…Rushes headlong and slows to a stately pace, is full of asides and surprises, and is suffused with obsession for the rose and thorn as flora, metaphor, and symbol…It is surely the perfect book.” Kirkus Reviews
