New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner spins a thoroughly thrilling Beauty and the Beast story for the modern age, expertly woven with spellbinding romance, intrigue, and suspense that readers won't soon be able to forget. Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones-and in her blood. After all, her father is the only hunter who's ever come close to discovering its secrets. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters out of their comfortable home among the aristocracy and back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there's no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas...or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva's father's misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he'd been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. The Beast. Deaf to her sisters' protests, Yeva hunts this strange creature back into his own territory-a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of magical creatures that Yeva's only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin, or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Spooner creates a detailed world populated by complex characters... An elegant, classic, and vivid fairy tale." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Unlike the cardboard heroes of fairytales, Yeva is a very human girl who must discover the meaning of the deep yearning that has always been within her. The author's depictions will keep the reader spellbound." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review) "A haunting and romantic exploration of love and what sacrifices come with freedom." -- Marie Lu, author of the Legend and The Young Elites trilogies "Haunting and graceful, with an edge that draws blood when you least expect it, Hunted is a masterpiece. Spooner deftly weaves together fairytale with fantasy, bringing to life an immersive, unforgettable world, a heart-wrenching romance, and a badass heroine." -- Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of Illuminae and The Starbound Trilogy "Elements of Russian folklore thread through this revision of "Beauty and the Beast," and the smooth storytelling effectively creates atmosphere and mood as well as relaying the tale. Much time is spent on details... they all work to create a richly immersive and creatively fresh world for a familiar story." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Realistic and Refreshing, this is my book of the week!”

I love fairytale stories. Disney princess films will always hold a place in my heart, but I always found them a little too vapid, lacking a real personality. Usually there only flaw was being determined to the point... More

“Great beauty & the beast freshness”

I am already a Spooner fan but Hunted solidified my admiration of her writing skills. HUNTED is heavy on the adaptation of fairytale in a YA format and light on the romance; for me, that was the perfect balance and... More
