This story was pretty good. I think my own loathing of redundancy is what keeps me from giving it a better score. I'm not one of those people who love to read different iterations of the same fairy tale. I want something relatively fresh every time I read (or play a game, or watch a movie). Despite having seen Beauty and the Beast many times during my childhood, "Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast" was surprisingly good. I definitely recommend if for those who love fairy tales, and those who love magical fantasy.
