Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.

In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again.

But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own . . . brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.

This one is like a fairy tale (of course, it's about fairy tales). It didn't really surprise me all that much. Mirabelle, of course, fell in love with a guy who.. well, let's just say, will be the death of her. 

Mirabelle plays a part in the tale of Sleeping Beauty. She doesn't fall in love with her destined Prince but falls in love with Blue and Felix (who really aren't her Prince). Mirabelle goes on a mission to find her destiny and to avoid her fate. I don't like any of the love interests in this one and pretty neutral about all three of them. So, wanna know about the fairy tale ending? Sorry, nope, go read it yourself to find out!

This is definitely for anyone who like fairy tales and dashing princes :)



  1. I have this one on my shelf but I haven't had the chance to pick it up yet. I've been getting really into fairytale retellings lately so this one immediately caught my eye. It sounds like it was still intriguing but not great. Happy you enjoyed it overall though!

  2. I don't like fairytale retellings all that much. So far, I've never found one that made it past "interesting". I love the cover of Kill Me Softly though.
