Beauty and the Beast, but not how you remember it...

Deep in the forest, a castle hides. No one knows who lives there, but rumors of a beast keep people away.

Cloaked in shadows, hidden from view, a prince destroyed by a curse shuts himself away from the world, ashamed of the beast he’s become.

And in the village, a beautiful girl with her nose in a book, yearns for

Marquise
This collection of Beauty and the Beast in different genres and settings seems to have been meant to contain thirteen stories originally, but in the final product contains only nine. It's the fourth in the "Kingdom of..." series of anthologies by the same group of authors, though not all of them have their stories in all the anthologies, and as is to be expected, there's plenty of variety in creativity as well as in quality.

Unique take

This collection ran the spectrum from one's I really enjoyed and found some new authors to follow up with more books. To some stories that made no sense at all... I enjoyed enough that I would recommend this collection to anyone who likes beauty and the beast... Just don't expect anything similar to what you are used to, these stories take huge stretches from the original.. Spanning from dragon beasts with Norse God influenced heroines to clockwork and steam punk, wolves to vampires.

Cillian the beast and Beauty an orphan becomes his chosen ward. They are living in a world made of lies. The people think the war is still going on, but it had been over for years. Cillian was a human cyborg, which was forbidden. Can the two become more and help the people from the ones that created this nightmare they live in? Really good remake of the classic fairytale.

The book I am reviewing in this set is by A.W. Cross, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. This story is one I was not putting down until I finished. This is a dystopian world story with suspense, drama, danger, evil, twists, turns, and love. This is the first book by this Author that I have read and I will be looking to read more.

I love fairytale retellings and this retelling did not disappoint. I loved the characters and the story. Both are very well written and had me not wanting to put the book down. Great retelling of beauty and the beast. I highly recommend reading Beauty, Unmasked.

Forget Enchanted Castles - R. Castro - I really enjoyed Lily's story. I loved the innocent farm girl coming to the big city feel to this story. Plus I really enjoyed someone getting to see inventions (that aren't really new to us) for the first time. This was really a great story.

Needs editing and the first two were a little weak in execution. Lost interest.

A lot of stories, but disappointing that some are prequels and not going to be finished till at least sometime 2020, while the first one is not much of a retelling and chock full of mistakes. Haven’t bothered to read more than a couple.
However, I did enjoy Thieves and monsters by Kelly N Jane. While at first I couldn’t stand the female protagonist - she seemed so stuck up and arrogant - she grew on me as the book went on.
