One of the things I like VERY, VERY MUCH about Rose Daughter
oh. maybe I should put in spoilers .....
is that the beast does not transform at the end. Can you imagine
getting to the point of loving a beast so that you want to marry him
[and, presumably, have sex with him] and then have him turn into
some wimpy _guy_? Ewwwwwww.
I like Rose Daughter better for other reasons as well.
In America, anybody can be president. That's
