Description - A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

A New York Times bestseller!

Has everything you'd want in a retelling of a classic fairy tale. - Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things

Absolutely spellbinding. - Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Caraval and Legendary

In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives readers another compulsively readable romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.

Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she's instead somehow sucked into Rhen's cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn't know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what's at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

Book Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer - Reviewed by (19 Apr 2020)

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer is the first novel I've read of hers and ever since finishing it, I've declared her my 'Auto Buy Author' and have started collecting all of her other books, especially her fantasy ones. The take on the fairytale - Beauty and the Beast - is refreshing and done in a much more entertaining and exciting way than all of the others I have read, so much so that this was the last chance I was going to give any books retelling fairytales, but I'm so glad I did give it the chance because it was probably my favourite read of the year. The character development, the growth of love between the two characters, the relationship with Grey, the action, the fighting, the jumps from world to world, are all what make it such a great read. The setting, plot development and pacing make it that much better. 5 Stars.
