Bsauty 35, November I have yet to read ANY book in which a female character dresses herself in “male” clothing for comfort and functionality but in the process offends some of those she encounters.
Mercedes Lackey: Beauty and the Werewolf
This might not be the best of the Kingdoms series, but still I found it enjoyable enough to finish in two days. Beauty and the Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey. The villain was obvious to the reader, and the gullibility of the duke unbelievable. The only thing that put me off was the cover.
Jan 18, Julie rated it really liked it. Lackey means “comfort reading” for me, so I enjoyed losing myself in the anx of this admittedly unchallenging fantasy.
Bella is also learning magic from Duke Sebastian and she realises she has a lot of power. I wasn’t greatly impressed by the heroine’s intelligence, given the identity of the villain was obvious to me from very early on, but she failed to realise until he made it blatantly obvious, at almost the very end.
Sep 15, eyes. Even though Eric said one thing, Lackey managed to let us know that there is something wrong with his pysche.
There are times a girl just needs to have some mindless fun. The Gates of Sleep.
I beayty enjoy series as much as I used to; I get tired of waiting for the next book. The invisible servants are a nice touch as well, since they all have distinct personalities and add some background characters without overwhelming the story. And I wasn’t disappointed. The plot runs almost parallel to the original two stories and in my opinion the first versions are better than this rendition.

This one popped up, and it looked decent, so I snagged it without really getting my hopes up. Distracting your reader does no credit to your story.

Jan 10, Ladkey rated it liked it Shelves: As Luna is a Harlequin imprint, it makes sense that there would have to be some elements of romance in the book it also tends to be a trend throughout the Five Hundred Kingdoms series.
I hate depictions of characters that do not match the descriptions set forth in the text. From a High Tower. These aren’t serious literature and that’s a good thing. Thoughts on the book. Lackey fans and people who enjoy novel retellings of fairy tales.
Then in steps Eric, the Gamekeeper. My stories come out of my characters; how those characters would react to the given situation.
Beauty and the Werewolf (2011)
Sixth in the Five Hundred Kingdoms fairy nercedes series. The eldest daughter is often doomed in fairy tales. The thing about Mercedes Lackey is that Mrecedes always know exactly what I’m going to get out of her work. I found the heroine to be just a bit abrasive and overly bossy, for my taste.
Jan 29, June rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Rita Longknife – Enemy Unknown. I read to “escape” from reality. The Robin and the Kestrel. With the exception of the heroine of The Frog Prince – in that one she was an insufferable brat who tried to kill the cursed prince.
