Beauty of Rosemead: A Retelling of Beauty & the Beast
5. Beauty of Rosemead
A WILTING ROSE. A TREACHEROUS QUEST. AND A FATEFUL LEGACY
With everyone she loves at the mercy of fairies, Bonnie risks everything to cross the forbidden forest at the end of her world to reach them. She arrives in Faerie with unforeseen company, intending to resume the quest to break Leander’s curse.
The plan sounds simple enough: Cross every fairy court and bargain with the queen who cast the curse. But as their numbers dwindle, so do the petals of the rose counting down to Leander’s doom, and that of everyone bound to him.
As they keep being dragged off course in the uncharted land of unpredictable magic and time, trials and revelations will test all bonds and unearth painful secrets, ones even her insatiable curiosity cannot withstand. But after all their struggles, will they reach the Spring Court in time? And what if Bonnie fails to negotiate with the queen?
How far will she go to save her beastly prince, before the last petal falls?
