Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With language that is both lyrical and distinctly her own, Francesca Lia Block turns nine fairy tales inside out.

Escaping the poisoned apple, Snow frees herself from possession to find the truth of love in an unexpected place. A club girl from L.A., awakening from a long sleep to the memories of her past, finally finds release from its curse. And Beauty learns that Beasts can understand more than men.

Within these singular, timeless landscapes, the brutal and the magical collide, and the heroine triumphs because of the strength she finds in a pen, a paintbrush, a lover, a friend, a mother, and finally, in herself.

Review:

"Intoxicating....Heady...The darkness of these conflicts and subjects proves the strength of the magic [Block] describes: the transfiguring power of love." Publisher's Weekly

Review:

"[Block] uses language like a jeweled sword, glittering as it cuts to the heart." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[Francesca Lia Block's] lush, beautiful words turn modern-day Los Angeles into a fantatsical world of fairies, angels, and charms." ALA Booklist
