A cursed prince sits alone in a secluded castle. Few have seen him, but those who claim they have say his hair is wild and nails are sharp--like a beast's! But how did this prince, once jovial and beloved by the people, come to be a reclusive and bitter monster? And is it possible that he can ever find true love and break the curse that has been placed upon him? - via GoodReads
The Beast Within was a fun look into what happened before The Beast became the Beast and was just a Prince. Valentino covers everything the Disney movie sort of glossed over. Who was the Enchantress and why did she have such a beef with the Prince? What did the Prince do to end up a Beast?
Valentino’s The Beast Within is a quick and light read but it is rich in detail. While I’m glad I read the book, I am glad I used my library instead of coughing up the $9.99 Kindle price.
