What if Belle's mother cursed the Beast? As Old as Time is the third book in the hit YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. When Belle touches the Beast's enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle's mind--memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her beautiful mother is none other than the enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making.

This Twisted Tale was exactly what I'd hope for from a Disney re-telling--building off of the characters and story I already love, but going in a totally unexpected direction. The plot twist at the end of Part 1 totally threw me, and then I wasn't sure where everything would go from there! All of the backstory fit seamlessly with the existing world, and the new developments made perfect sense as a result. I would totally accept this as a canon AU.

The writing style actually took me by surprise because there were words in there that I had never seen before--and I read *a lot.* I had to look some words up, and that gave me a pleasure that I hadn't experienced in a long time! My one stylistic critique is that she tends to overuse ellipses. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I will happily read her others.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: There is some torture in the insane asylum--very quickly passed over, but still a bit disturbing.
