Barefoot on the Wind Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A feminist reworking of Beauty and the Beast from a talented fantasy writer. A magical retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" set in a fairytale Japan.

A companion title to Zoe Marriott's critically acclaimed Shadows on the Moon.

There is a monster in the forest... Everyone in Hana's remote village on the mountain knows that straying too far into the woods is a death sentence.

When Hana's father goes missing, she is the only one who dares try to save him.

Taking up her hunting gear, she goes in search of the beast, determined to kill it - or be killed herself.

But the forest contains more secrets, more magic and more darkness than Hana could ever have imagined, and the beast is not at all what she expects...
