    5 Stars! “I admit that Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite fairy tale and Wiesner's story is loosely based on it; however, that is not why I am giving this story such a high rating. This story deserves every star. Instead of accepting his fate and grieving, this hero is trying hard to lift the curse or find a cure. As for the heroine, she is not perfect. Her secret is worse than his. I find that fact to be a refreshing change. It is a gentle twist to make the tale even more interesting. Karen Wiesner knows what readers want in their stories and she delivers.” ~Huntress Reviews http://www.huntressreviews.com 4.5 Stars! “Ransom is much more than a scientist. He’s a caring, sensitive man with amazing willpower. While the rest of his family embraces the curse of the werewolf, Ransom has been fighting it for over twenty years. It would have been so much easier for Ransom to embrace the curse, but he took the more difficult path. I admire his perseverance and dedication to his... More > principles. When a strange man stumbles onto the Shaussegeny property, his situation bears an eerie resemblance to the tale of Beauty and the Beast. Since Ransom is such a scientific and logical person, I did find it a bit odd that he would suddenly decide to go where the magic was leading him. After all, he’d spent his whole life resisting the magic and evil that surrounded Woodcutter’s Grim. However, this led Ransom into the interesting predicament of having to acknowledge that science might not hold the key to everything after all. Tess brings out the best in Ransom. Though they met under less than ideal circumstances, they quickly begin to fall in love and have great chemistry. Like Ransom was at the beginning, Tess is very mysterious. The truth of her past isn’t revealed in full until the end of the story. I can’t give away any details without spoiling the ending. However, I will say that Tess’s history is a truly interesting twist that I didn’t expect. “I thoroughly enjoyed reading Beauty is the Beast. Ransom’s happy ending with Tess is sweet and well deserved. Ms. Wiesner’s take on the classic fairytale was the perfect ending to this miniseries within the overall Woodcutter’s Grim Series. Anyone who enjoys fairy tales that are a little different should certainly read Beauty is the Beast as well as the other stories in the anthology.” ~Long and Short Reviews http://longandshortreviews.blogspot.com/2012/05/beauty-is-beast-by-karen-wiesner.html< Less
