Yeva lives with her sisters and her father in a town house. But after they lose all of their wealth they have to move to their fathers hunting cabinet deep into the forest. Yeva is the youngest of her sisters and her father learned her how to hunt when she was little. But he gave up that life for his wife, Yeva's mother. When she was younger her father used to tell her stories about all the magic creatures who live in the forest. But now that Yeva is so much outside again, she is doubting if the stories weren’t true…
This book was written like a real fairy-tale. The beginning was slow but that was nice, that's what made it more a fairy-tale. And it was also nice because you didn’t had to rush into a story, you could just sit down and read a romantic book, with a magical and Russian twist. While we were reading the story from Yevra’s aspect we also read parts of “Beasts’ Diary” and that aspect made the book even better!
I really love this Beauty and the Beast retelling, because it felt so true like a real fairytale. And I liked the Russian folklore!
