"The Beast Within" (Villains Book 2), by Serena Valentino, eBook, 142 pages

GoodReads: A cursed prince sits alone in a secluded castle. Few have seen him, but those who claim they have say his hair is wild and nails are sharp--like a beast's! But how did this prince, once jovial and beloved by the people, come to be a reclusive and bitter monster? And is it possible that he can ever find true love and break the curse that has been placed upon him?

This is becoming one of my favorite series! I love Disney and this is so much fun getting to know the back story to these characters! Learning how the prince became the beast overtime and not just because he made a one time offense against a beautiful enchantress was fascinating. He was a jerk. A major jerk! He wanted a woman who was beautiful but dumb. Someone to be seen and not heard. The curse that was put upon him brought him loneliness unlike what we see in the movie.

This is a beautiful story and I cannot wait to unpack Ursula's story next!

5/5 Stars
