Review

Rating: 8

An alternate history retelling of Beauty and the Beast with overtones of Jane Eyre. After the Great War with the Fey, battle-scarred Jane Eliot takes a position as a governess with a reclusive widower at his manor of Silver Birch in order to care for his child. The child, Dorie, is different in a way that Jane understands, both having been afflicted by the Fey, though Jane’s is outwardly visible. But there are darker secrets and sinister machinations that only Jane can hope to face.
