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.

A good read for lovers of fantasy . . . .

Book 1, 5 and 6 are the best of this series to date.

The villain is pretty easy to pick out from the get go but aside from that the story still holds the readers interest with good character and world building.

If you were expecting to read a copy of Red Riding Hood you have the wrong book. The story does however doe include a female lead, Isabella who wears a red cloak, a "Granny", a wise old woman, who she visits who lives in the woods out side town, a game keeper and well a were wolf and even a step mother and step sisters thrown into the mix along with sorcerers, invisible servants, curses, spells and well i guess you need to read it to find out how all this comes together and of course the romance and life threatening encounters . . .

It's a good read and well worth adding to your library

Mercedes Lackey dropped the ball a bit after the first book but picked it up again with books 5 and 6

although each story is separate in its own right characters do appear from previous books but in the main aside from the godmother Elena and her household non of the previous books main chracters are a common thread though out this series.

Unlike the Tradition . . .

I would recommend this book and series bearing in mind the above comments on some of the books in the series which don't match up to the quality of books 1, 5 and 6 but are still readable.

Comments made above are obviously a reflection of my current taste and opinions.

Book 6 and maybe the best in series

This is the 6th book in the series and I think perhaps my favorite one. The story didn't start slowly like many of the others have and while it was apparent the whole time the answer to the difficulty in the story etc, it was still a fun read. Excellent brain candy and a wonderful narrator.

unsatisfying.

I had heard this was one of the better ones in the series, but I disagree. the story kept pushing the girl away from the beast and towards the huntsman, but then it would harshly snap back to the beast by explaining why the huntsman was awful. the huntsman was a much more developed character than the beast, who didn't do ANYTHING the entire book except mope. this book series has been full of dissapointments.she should have stopped after the 1st one.

Good but she read some words wrong.

It's a very good book, but the narrator reads some of the words wrong which kind of bugs me.

Derivative unfortunately.

Like a piece in want of a puzzle. Normally I enjoy this author's work and own several of her titles, however, the exposition and need to hit certain story elements leave a listener wanting.

One of those you read yourself

I won't deny, i did like this book. Out of the physical ones in the series, it's one of the ones I'd consider reading a few times. However, hearing it read just annoyed me from time to time. I think that's the point, as that means the narrator did a job well done at the parts that are indeed annoying, but that just makes it really hard for me to want to listen to it again. I've done this with other audiobooks: the story is great, but hearing it just irks you to kingdom come. You have to read it at your own pace or you get angry too often. It's hard to hear all of that with an audiobook. So yeah, well done, just something I'd only read again.

Decent but Obvious Plot

It was a fun book, but just a touch too predictable to be really great.

Very unique

I always love Misty's books. Well, except for one and that was One Good Night, but only because my late daughter's name is Andromeda but I'll probably give it another try. I really didn't expect to like this book because of the whole red riding hood thing that I was so pleasantly surprised with the characters, especially Sebastian and of course Gabra Zachman is one of my all-time favorite narrators. So I highly recommend this book.

bit slow

I felt that it was a bit slow over all. Then the jump from "I don't know what I feel" to "I love you and won't live without you" was a bit rushed and forced. Overall a good book but not the best in the series by far.
