Blossom and the Beast (The Alder Tales Book #1) 19, Jul

BLOSSOM AND THE BEAST is a retelling of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST with werebears, magicians, and criminal-corporate syndicates. Generally, I'm a fan of the original fairy tale but it's a story which routinely gets flubbed up in the adaptation. Sometimes the Beast isn't ugly enough, sometimes he's too vicious, sometimes the Stockholm Syndrome elements are too overt, and sometimes people just miss the point of the story completely (specifically, about finding the good beneath someone's appearance).
