Leife Shallcross’s first novel, The Beast’s Heart, a "luxuriously magical retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale", will be published by Hodder & Stoughton in May 2018. She is also the author of several short stories, including Pretty Jennie Greenteeth, which won the 2016 Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Short Story. Leife has a bit of a thing for fairy tales, and is particularly inspired by those characters that tend to fall into the cracks of the usual stories. She can be found online at leifeshallcross.com and on Twitter @leioss. ...more

The Beast's Heart by Leife Shallcross
"Beasts Heart

An honest 5/5 stars!

A retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale, but told entirely from the perspective of the Beast and gives him a backstory that’s not only unique but contains actually believable characters despite the curses, " Read more of this review »

“Enchantments and dreams: I suspect they are made of the same stuff. They each beguile the mind and confuse the senses with wonder and strangeness so all that was familiar becomes freakish, and the most bizarre of things intimate and natural. For the longest time after the curse fell, I did not know if I was a beast who dreamed of being a man, or a man who dreamed he was a beast.”
Leife Shallcross, The Beast's Heart

“He is not a CREATURE.
He is a GOOD MAN!”
Leife Shallcross, The Beast's Heart

“I wish I could make her see any amount of money was only the least of her virtues.”
