Sub Rosa by Mia Darien
Short and sweet:) This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast – with a twist. I fell it could have done with being a wee bit longer but it was fun for a short read and quite cleverly executed. The main characters were interesting, and pretty different – one modern and one trapped in the past. The twist really worked, and made the outcome more poignant. Only a couple of things niggled – it felt a little rushed and was a bit choppy and some of the other characters could have been fleshed out more. That said it WAS a short story.
Overall well done and I’ll be looking out for more from this author.
