A feminist reworking of Beauty and the Beast from a talented fantasy writer.

A magical retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" set in a fairytale Japan. A companion title to Zoe Marriott's critically acclaimed Shadows on the Moon. There is a monster in the forest... Everyone in Hana's remote village on the mountain knows that straying too far into the woods is a death sentence. When Hana's father goes missing, she is the only one who dares try to save him. Taking up her hunting gear, she goes in search of the beast, determined to kill it - or be killed herself. But the forest contains more secrets, more magic and more darkness than Hana could ever have imagined, and the beast is not at all what she expects...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Beautifully written and imagined -- Amanda Craig * Scoop *
The author's trademark visually lucid style, magnificent world-building and exquisitely formed plot make this a richly satisfying read with a smart feminist overtone. * Love Reading 4kids *
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tale and will happily be getting lost in these dark woods again with Hana-San and Itsuki. * thelibrarymousebooktails.blogspot *
You will find love and comfort in every step and every turn, every chapter of this gripping tale [...] You will feel drawn to the book, attached to the characters and immersed in their adventures. This is definitely a winner for me. This is one retelling you should not miss! * heyitsbookishme.wordpress.com *
A dreamy, chilling reimagining of Beauty & the Beast * Samantha Shannon *
Beautifully written and imagined, Barefoot on the Wind is not just about romantic love - it's about family, and facing your deepest fears. Like all the best fairy stories, it ends on a note of unexpected joy. * Scoop *
Beautiful visual imagery, viscerally brutal action and desperate passions make this retelling feel fresh - highlighting the tale's original themes of alienation, isolation and desire. * BookTrust *
Zoe Marriot's writing is fabulous as always , and this is a fantastic feminist retelling of Beauty and the Beast set in a fantasy version of Japan. * Children's Books Ireland *
