Waiting on Wednesday: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Hunted by Meagan Spooner

A brand new retelling for you all. Retellings are very popular lately. This time is Beauty and the Beast!

Publication date: March 14th, 2017
Publisher: HarperTeen

Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

So many retellings xD now that we have the movie of the Beauty and the Beast, we also have this book. Obviously the book doesn't follow the ordinary story line but you can see it's influenced by it. Now the question is: how will this story end? (I'm hoping for a completely new, never seen before, ending. Something shocking like a death or you know... as long as it's not the typical romance thing...)

What do you think?

Are you excited about Hunted?
