"As soon as you believe you are a monster is when you become one."

After many years of war, the kingdom of Arium is finally in an era of peace--peace obtained by one thing and one thing only. 

A deal. 

King Rosen has made a deal with the devil, or rather, a beast. A monster. 

Or so he claims. 

When he uses the deal for his own advantage, he threatens a girl named Lyza, who has had everything but her family taken away. 

Lyza is ordered to kill the beast Rosen made a deal with, unbeknownst to her that the deal even exists. When her attempt fails, she is left with two choices: to never go back home, or to learn from the beast so she can take back what is hers. 

Lyza faces dangers on the castle grounds she thought were only stories; magic, creatures that kill a person in a single puff of air, and lastly, the beast, who can barely control the darkness that has buried itself in him for years. 

The longer she is on the castle grounds, however, the more she realizes everything is more than it seems...

...and that she has a power she could only dream about.

A retelling of Beauty and the Beast
