The castle is cursed. The servants are losing their humanity and memory. Crow, a young man surprisingly resistant to the curse, is their only connection to the outside world, observing as a bird.

When Crow is assigned to help care and keep watch of the brother, he regards it as a sort of punishment... with the exception that he finds Roi quite pleasing to look at. Initially keen to make the other miserable, prisoner and servant reluctantly align to seek an alternative way to break the spell. But this is no simple task with time running short, increasing abuse from the senior staff, and so few to be trusted. Furthermore, Roi's own interests in Crow grow increasingly apparent, and Crow has no idea how to handle this zealous man. This mature story features a slight twist and different perspective on a classic fairy tale.… (mer)

The traditional Beauty and the Beast presents us with the very front of the magical story. This book? It's literally "behind the scenes". We learn how long and bitter the curse was, how hard it was on everyone involved, especially servants, how some characters took advantage of their new positions, how characters' nature influenced the animal they shifted into, the intrigues and the politics in the cursed castle's couloirs.

The author struggled the first 15-20%, but I am glad I pushed through. The writing evened out a lot, tho still not perfect. However, the story pulled me in so much that I really didn't care about an odd sentence here and there.
Wish the ending was a little bit longer, but overall the book was very satisfying and left me with a very good impression. I might re-read it.

PS Forgot to add. The three female characters in this story were actually good! Very refreshing. Well, except for the wicked witch, of course, she was not a good person at all ;)

PPS LITTLE to NO SEX. ( )
