"It is the heart of this place, and it is dying," says the Beast. And it is true; the center of the Beast's palace, the glittering glasshouse that brings Beauty both comfort and delight in her strange new environment, is filled with leafless brown rosebushes. But deep within this enchanted world, new life, at once subtle and strong, is about to awaken. Twenty years ago Robin McKinley enthralled readers with the power of Beauty. Now this extraordinarily gifted novelist retells the story of Beauty and the Beast again--but in a totally new way, with fresh perspective, ingenuity, and mature insight. In Rose Daughter she has written her finest and most deeply felt work, a compelling, richly imagined, and haunting exploration of the transformative power of love.

Frankly, I didn't like it as much as 'Beauty'. Still a solid 3 star book though

Well, this is unsurprising. Yet another McKinley novel fails to enchant me. As always, these 3 Stars are for her writing alone - beautiful, melodic, and practically hypnotic. Sadly, the story is dull, lacking any real conflict and falling back on much of the same dialogue and plot lines from McKinle...

After Beauty I didn't think that Robin McKinley could do a comparable retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story, I was wrong, it's not better, it's as good, slightly different, more mature but still a good yarn.

5.0 Rose Daughter
Dear author,I loved "Beauty" when I read it many months ago; I thought nothing could ever take its place in my heart. Now, after reading "Rose Daughter", I can't decide which one is dearer to me. Robin McKinley, can you decide for me? Which one I like better? Which one I have to love less? Clearly, ...

Loved this book, but I felt like I've read it before, oh that's right it's almost exactly the same as Beauty. Down to certain passages being almost identical. But I love this story and this book! I did notice differences and I liked them too!
