Bryony and Roses by T. Kingfisher

By T. Kingfisher

Bryony and her sisters have come down on the earth. Their service provider father died attempting to reclaim his fortune and left them to eke out a dwelling in a village faraway from their domestic within the city.

But whilst Bryony is stuck in a storm from snow and takes safe haven in an deserted manor, she stumbles right into a condo packed with darkish enchantments. Is the Beast that lives there her captor, or a fellow prisoner? Is the home her enemy or her best friend? And why are roses blooming out of season within the courtyard?

Armed merely with gardening shears and her wits, Bryony needs to untangle the secrets and techniques of the home prior to she—or the Beast—are swallowed by way of them.

From the writer of “The 7th Bride” comes a brand new retelling of attractiveness & the Beast, with gardeners, clockwork bees, and roses.

The other alien had almost finished barfing up enough sand to build a full-sized castle (a really disgusting, alien-mucus-covered sandcastle), and he seemed pretty ticked. Most of the kids had already retreated into the school building. Zoey clutched my hand, and we made it inside a few seconds later. Bob, the school custodian, locked the doors behind us, but there were tons of windows. All of the aliens flew straight for us. I was pretty sure we were hosed when, all of a sudden, they turned and headed straight up in the air.

The aliens choked on the balls and fell to the ground. Toby passed me right as the last alien, Admiral Nut-Bag himself, came into range. His wide-open mouth revealing rows and rows of sharp, pointed teeth. It was more a meat grinder than a mouth. I aimed my last ball and launched a perfect shot. Except this time, the alien was ready for it. Nut-Bag zagged to the left as the ball flew harmlessly by. Zoey had grabbed another ball, but it was too late. Admiral Nut-Bag flew right over me before either of us could get off a shot.
