This review is from: The Beauty's Beast (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure what to make of it when I read the blurb, but I really enjoyed it! I read it in a day and so glad I did The story follows Gabriel, a knight - who is also a werewolf - who is trapped as a wolf due to his wife's betrayal and Lady Kathryn, who is a in the Queen's court. Kathryn is out with the court fox hunting when she comes across the wolf. She instantly recognises there is something special about the wolf and prevents the King from killing him. The wolf is put in Kathryn's care and with the help of the court sorcerer they discover the wolf's secret and work to try and restore him back to his human's form.
This was well written and engaging. I found the story enjoyable and liked the characters. Of course, being a fantasy book there were some elements that are unrealistic - such as, the way Gabriel can act like a human even though he is a wolf. I liked Gabriel. Even though he did have a lot of anger issue, he is caring and can see the error in his ways. It did make me laugh how he could intimidate everyone. I loved how protective he was and the lengths he went for Kathryn. I liked her as well. Although only in the the Queen's court, she was strong and knew her mind. She was intelligent, but she was also a woman, she fell in love and struggled with her feelings.
The story was great. There was action and mystery - there were times I laughed and I felt much empathy for the characters. This is a good book and I really enjoyed it. I liked how the story played out. I wasn't surprised how the story ended but the fighting and the resolution made it worth while. I am happy to recommend this book and can easily rate it 4/5.
