East of the Sun, West of the Moon: A sci-fi retelling of Beauty and the Beast

by Jodie Seibert on 2017-11-21

A TALE of a Future TIME ... when a BEAUTY met a genetically-engineered BEAST

Expecting her father to return with their missing cargo containers, seventeen-year-old Varda is shocked when all he brings back is a strange golden rose ... and silence. And when he agrees to dangerous mining work on the Moon to satisfy his debt­—and Varda’s greedy, thoughtless sisters—she determines that she must uncover the truth.

What she finds on the far side of the Moon is a beast-like man named Griff, genetically-engineered, changed by someone he will not name. When Varda discovers the same person who cursed him has also imprisoned thousands more, she wants nothing more than to free both them and Griff. With the help of expected and unexpected allies from Earth and the Moon, her talent in the textile arts, and a few secret keys, Varda must risk a rescue mission and get close to someone she hates in order to save someone she loves.

East of the Sun, West of the Moon is a sweet, clean romance intended for anyone who loves fairy tale retellings and happily ever afters.
