Barefoot on the Wind

By Zoe Marriott

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 Zoë 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...

  • A refreshing and provocative real-world take on the fantasy genre. Set in a mythical Japan rather than the usual Tolkien-inspired pseudo-Europe.
  • Praise for Zoe Marriott: "Zoe Marriott is a rising star in fantasy fiction" -- The Times
  • A companion title to Zo Marriott's critically acclaimed Shadows on the Moon.
