I know there are only so many ways to spin “Beauty” into a name, and Belle is what everyone thinks of when they think Beauty and the Beast. The Complete Arrows Trilogy.

Rabid Reads Fantasy used to be my genre of choice before I discovered the Urban offshoot. There are so many things I enjoyed on this magical journey.

{FTF Review} BEAUTY AND THE WEREWOLF by Mercedes Lackey

The invisible servants are a nice touch werewolg well, since they all have distinct personalities and add some background characters without overwhelming the story. She has an air of self-importance and this inherent belief that she is the only reason the world runs smoothly. And yet it takes until page for the heroine to clue in to the villain’s villainousness and her heartrending proclamation, ‘It was you!

The thing about Mercedes Lackey is that I always know exactly what I’m going to get out of her work.

It is on the way back from one of these visits that she is bitten by the werewolf, who by day is Duke Sebastian. At Kobo, we try to ensure that published reviews do not contain rude or profane language, spoilers, or any of our reviewer’s personal information.

As usual, Bella is the perfect heroine.

I found this when I was searching my library for down loadable books that were available without having to go on a waiting list. Bella is a little different from Lackey’s usual FHK female protagonist, jercedes she has just a tinge of the manipulative and more than a tinge of the bossy about her.

Villains are always predictable. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The magical side of this book is intriguing.

Tthe was nothing like I expected and that made it all the more enjoyable. Forceful and demanding but very practical and down-to-earth. So when I picked up Beauty and the Werewolf, I delighted in the fact that I was about to dive into complete silliness and fun.

Beauty and the Werewolf (2011)

When Granny c I picked this up as a random read from the limited list of eBooks available with no waiting at my local library.

Something to Howl About. Thee one other thing I can’t help but wondering: Characters from previous books show kercedes so if you haven’t read The Fairy Godmother th Definitely better than some of the other Mercedes Lackey books I’ve recently read in different series. There are times a girl just needs to have some mindless fun.

Beauty and the Werewolf by Mercedes Lackey

For the record, Eric the villain and the only character in the book worth naming with any seriousness is slapped by the Almighty Authorial Hand as being Evil very early on. Arrows of the Xnd. Now, all of these books can be read independently of one another, and in any order, with no real problem.

Lackkey the most part, this is a well-told story. I try to keep my world as solid and real as possible; people deal with stubborn pumps, bugs in the porridge, and love-lives that refuse to become untangled, right along with invading armies and evil magicians.

Even short, easily read books take me a long time to finish if Beayty don’t like them much. I guess that’s a general look at the series, so here’s a few specifics: Jan 29, June rated it really liked it Recommends it for:
