As good a retelling of Beauty and the beast as one could want.
The third Twisted Tale expands on the world and characters of Beauty and the Beast. As we follow Belle on her familiar journey, we also get to see the backstory of her parents unfold in a forgotten kingdom where creatures of magic, les charmantes, used to live in peace and safety. But when Belle ventures into the West Wing and finds the enchanted rose, the story diverges and she and the Beast must search for the truth about Belle’s mother and a new way to end the curse.
Along the way, Belle faces the complexities of people, including the Beast, and herself, and especially her mother. No one is immune to mistakes and errors in judgment, even while trying to do what we think is best for those we care about.
This book takes everything I have always loved about Beauty and the Beast and adds to it, giving more depth to the characters and the setting. Even after the story diverges from the classic tale, there are still a lot of parallels to the original that keep it familiar but with enough twists to make it unpredictable. My favourite of the series so far!
I wasn't to fond of this book mainly because it was like I was reading the cartoon movie, just with added stories within it. I liked the idea of including the mom and having a story on her I just wish there was more about Rosalinda and Maurice. When I got closer to the ending of the book, that's when I was more intrigued with the story. I think this book had potential in creating a new twist to it but was missed by just a bit.

A Twisted Tale (3)
"What if Belle's mother cursed the Beast? When Belle touches the Beast's enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle's mind--memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her mother is none other than the beautiful enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making"--

Dit is het 1ste boek van de A Twisted Tale serie dat ik heb gelezen. Ik wou dit boek heel graag lezen om verschillende redenen. Ten 1ste wou ik dit boek lezen omdat ik een enorme Disneyfan ben. Ten 2de wou ik dit boek lezen omdat Belle en het Beest mijn favoriete Disneyfilm is. En ten 3de wou ik dit boek heel graag lezen omdat dit boek ook gaat over Belle haar mama, een personage dat in de film nog niet eens ter sprake komt. Ik heb dit boek in 2 dagen uitgelezen.
Dit boek is zeker een aanrader voor Disneyfans en mensen die houden van verhalen met een twist.
Deze reeks van boeken is helaas niet in het Nederlands beschikbaar, maar in het Engels leest het boek ook heel vlot en gemakkelijk! ( )
