On today’s Meet The Author feature we are welcoming Michigan based indie author Lindsay Mead. Lindsay has written two YA books (so far) re-telling the story of Beauty and the Beast. The series is entitled The Hunter Legends Series. She describes herself as a book nerd, budding fitness bunny and big dreamer. Well, we always have time for big dreamers on this site! She also has a little dog called Suzie Q.
Besides being an author she is also a vlogger and you can check out her YouTube author vlog here and her daily life vlog here. She uploads videos each day and hosts a weekly topic video every Wednesday to talk about bookish matters with readers. We think we may have to pencil that live stream in our diary. Especially if Suzie Q will be joining!
You can also check out her blog and if you like the sound of her Beauty and the Beast re-tellings, they are available on Amazon by clicking below.
Book 1: The Beast
Demon possession has swept through Glace’s neighboring kingdom, turning humans into hellhounds. These great, fanged wolves are wild, desperate, and hungry. Only the sworn Hunters have kept them back for five long, bloody years.
Since becoming a Hunter at a young age, Belle LeClair no longer remembers how many hounds she’s killed or how many friends she’s buried. Still, Belle leads the hunt till a tragedy forces her deep into the dark kingdom. Her heart will be turned, her loyalty tested— and fate will intervene.
Amid a backdrop of Steampunk inventions and a harsh winter landscape, The Beast is a re-imagining of the infamous love between a beauty and a beast.
Book 2: The Beauty
Can love thrive in a kingdom of secrets?
Rumors of King Aleksander abound, sowing seeds of fear and doubt among the populace. Worse, there’s only so much Belle can do to repair the damage caused by the former Bishop’s fear-mongering. With challenges and new enemies threatening, the couple will have to prove the strength of their love.
Of course, a cure for the king and his cursed people could solve everything. It may be as simple as reaching out to the right scientists, or maybe it’s all beyond the ingenuity of man. Tensions mount as old foes refuse to stay dead and unexpected revelations leave the future uncertain. But ultimately, it’s the half-truths that could lead to heartbreak.
The Beauty is the second book in The Hunter Legends, a re-imagining of the infamous love between a beauty and a beast.
