Just Reviewed “Beauty and the Werewolf” at SBR

Folks, if you’re looking for a fun, fast romantic fantasy that loves turning “the Tradition” of fairy tales on its ear, you will really enjoy Mercedes Lackey’s BEAUTY AND THE WEREWOLF.  Here’s the link to my review:

Now, as to what else to say about it?  Well, I loved the characterization, and I appreciated how the plot enhanced this rather than the reverse.  That the characterization flowed out naturally and that the romance was an extremely believable one (where the two characters had to get to know each other as friends, first, and only then did they realize they were attracted to one another) was just an added bonus.

Very good story.  Enjoyable plot.  A good way to spend two or three hours.  And I would gladly re-read this one again, which is why I gave it an A-.  (There are a few things I would’ve liked to see here that I didn’t, mostly having to do with the bad-guy character, Eric.  But they were minor quibbles, at most.)

Enjoy the review!
