Dokey does a wonderful job of re-telling the stories from different perspectives, sometimes from the main character’s point of view, sometimes from others around the character.

Selfless, confident, and beautiful, Belle and her story is one to remember. I was disappointed at how the story progressed.

It was weird that the lake showed Belle what she loved most, which ended up being her and the Beast, but for her to run away? Cameron Dokey is one of my favourite authors, and I can’t wait for more from her.

Bbelle I know is that those words keep echoing behind my mind. Beauty and the Beast. Uh, I suppose it’s good. Many pages are taken up with descriptions of what it’s like to meet him.

I just wished she had used some of that creativity with this story. When she went back to Gaspard weirdest name ever, might as well stick with Beastshe was in love, and BAM! Bellee rating off all the books this compilation contains.


Yes, camerob my words, opera. Why does she fall in love with him? Out of the 3 stories I feel that Belle and Sunlight and Shadow were the better and most strongly written out of the three.

For she was the one who decreed I would be known as Belle, a name that means Beauty dkoey the land of my birth. I enjoyed this fractured fairytale very much.

Besides Belle, her sisters were gelle as well. Although I came to accept it and like it, gradually. I thought that Sunlight and Shadow was a strange mix of joy, sorrow, and overall befuddlement.
