Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss this delightful start to a new series by Sandhya Menon that relocates Beauty and the Beast to the Colorado mountains. Princess Jaya is a new student on a mission to avenge her younger sister and is unexpectedly drawn to her target — the brooding Grey Emerson, son of a rival family. Together, Arserio and Carpenter bring this story of a cursed love to life.
