Beauty and the Beast are back, along with the familiar cast of characters from Disney's films. This movie tie-in begins not long after Belle's visit to the forbidden West Wing and the Beast's subsequent, apologetic gift of the castle's library, where Belle finds a book that captivates her as no other book has before. The enchanted book Belle loves, Nevermore, allows her to escape the castle and her imprisonment, but it is not all that it seems, and Belle finds herself the unwitting pawn in a game between Love and Death. While in Nevermore, Belle wishes to study at university, an unlikely aspiration in the book's fictional preindustrial time frame, which may jar readers attuned to such details out of Donnelly's fantasy world. Within that limitation, this book still works for its audience. Readers will enjoy revisiting this magical world, where they can delve deeper into Belle and the Beast's relationship, and the adventurous Belle is a likable companion for these enchanted travels in Nevermore. Fans will also be cheered by the funny, heartwarming banter among the castle's enchanted servants. Like Belle, many readers may wish to escape their imperfect lives, and they might find bracing Belle's discovery that real life is to be preferred, for all of the chaos and pain that it brings. Readers who love Beauty and the Beast will greatly enjoy the opportunity to spend more time with their story. (Fantasy. 10-14)

Smart, bookish Belle, a captive in the Beast's castle, has become accustomed to her new home and has befriended its inhabitants. When she comes upon Nevermore, an enchanted book unlike anything else she has seen in the castle, Belle finds herself pulled into its pages and transported to a world of glamour and intrigue. The adventures Belle has always imagined, the dreams she was forced to give up when she became a prisoner, seem within reach again.

The charming and mysterious characters Belle meets within the pages of Nevermore offer her glamorous conversation, a life of dazzling Parisian luxury, and even a reunion she never thought possible. Here Belle can have everything she ever wished for. But what about her friends in the Beast's castle? Can Belle trust her new companions inside the pages of Nevermore? Is Nevermore's world even real? Belle must uncover the truth about the book, before she loses herself in it forever.
