Read 2 times. Last read August 2019.

A brilliant sci-fi retelling of Beauty and the Beast on par with the Lunar Chronicles. Like that series, it adapts a familiar fairy tale into a sci-fi world without stripping away the charm and magic of the original. While I generally am left wanting more when I reach the end of a really good novella or short story, I didn't feel that way in this case...but only because I was completely satisfied. It didn't need to be any longer. All the character arcs were brought to an earned conclusion, and the plot built to a perfect coda. A new favorite on my shelf that I will certainly be reading again.
