I was so fortunate to receive a copy for review.
One for: AMAZING!
This is a wonderful quick adorable retelling of the classic tale of the Beauty and the Beast.
1 Star: The characters are likeable! Will is adorable and lovely annoying in the beginning.
2 Stars: Fairy tale elements. I LOVED the Fey Lands and how dangerous these magical beings really are. And I loved the fact that there was a stepmom and two stepsisters.
3 Stars: Their love doesn't develop that quickly. I hate when that happens
4 Stars: I love old fashioned boys so Will was spot on for me!
5 Stars: I never really liked the Beauty and the Beast, but I really like this version.
-1 star: WHY ISNT THERE MORE? THIS COULD BE EVEN MORE AMAZING if it was longer!
+ 1 star: the general magic of the house!
= total of 5 stars!
I received a copy by the author in return for an honest review)
I love dystopian fiction, I really do. I also love kickass heroines.
So this book is voted similar to the hunger games, yeah, I get:
- kickass heroine from a poor environment
- she's got a little sister she wants to protect
- not that fond of her mother (compared to her father)
- layers of realms divided into many small supchapters and so on..
But I preferred this one compared to the hunger games. David (the amazing author) has really created something EPIC here. It's amazing. Truly. And very true to the dystopian genre. Well done David, well done..
The characters are likeable, the world is constructed well and there is this amazing mystery going on which keeps the reader glued from beginning to end. What the heck is going on? Why the bombing? Why the weird headaches? What does the note mean? WHAT????! (I am so reading the next book!)
I'm adding this to my favourite shelf.
How I loved they didn't kiss!
