    • Abstract:
      Summary: Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall, was cursed to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year; he could only be saved if a girl fell for him. But at the end of each autumn he turned into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction... and destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope. Washington, D.C. native Harper Lacy's father is long gone, her mother is dying, and her brother constantly underestimates her because of her cerebral palsy. When she is sucked into Rhen's cursed world, Harper doesn't know where she is or what to believe. As Rhen regains hope, they learn it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin. -- adapted from jacket

Harper has learned how to fight. Not physically—her cerebral palsy makes that hard—but against the fear she feels every day for her mom, who's dying of cancer, and her brother, who's keeping their family afloat through any means. When she tries to stop an attempted kidnapping on the frigid streets of D.C. one night, Harper finds herself transported to the cursed world of Emberfell. Here Prince Rhen repeats the autumn of his eighteenth birthday—every year, when winter comes, he transforms into a vicious monster. All that's left is a dwindling hope: if a girl falls in love with him, the curse will break. But in more than 300 years, none has. Harper's cerebral palsy, while mild, is treated as an afterthought, often unmentioned even in high-action scenes, and thin characterizations and a high-page count stall this Beauty and the Beast retelling. Still, the approach is compelling, and Kemmerer manages to put a fresh twist on an old story. High-concept fairy tales are popular, and younger fans of Sarah J. Maas will be eager for this one.
