The writing is fine, but the first two-thirds was horrendously boring. The last act was much better. ( )

I love the way this Beauty & the Beast retelling handles the invisible servants. ( )

Well written, engaging twist on a classic fairy tale. ( )

Absolute twaddle. Not a single original, noteworthy, or memorable element in this book. I stopped buying her books years ago (this particular series after the first one), and getting this out of the library was a waste of an afternoon. Even as fluffy brain candy, this is less satisfying than cyanide-laced cotton candy. I am utterly mystified at the high ratings this book has. ( )

Typical Mercedes Lackey - she wraps everything up lickety split in the last 50 pages. ( )

Book description
The eldest daughter is often doomed in fairy tales. But Bella--Isabella Beauchamps, daughter of a wealthy merchant--vows to escape the usual pitfalls.

Anxious to avoid the Traditional path, Bella dons a red cloak and ventures into the forbidden forest to consult with "Granny," the local wisewoman. But on the way home she's attacked by a wolf--who turns out to be a cursed nobleman Secluded in his castle, Bella is torn between her family and this strange man who creates marvelous inventions and makes her laugh--when he isn't howling at the moon.

Breaking spells is never easy. But a determined beauty, a wizard (after all, he's only an occasional werewolf) and a little godmotherly interference might just be able to bring about a happy ending..
