REVIEW: the Beauty's Beast by E.D. Walker

Book one of the Beauty's Beast Fantasy series. 

Book Blurb: Lady Kathryn’s father sends her to court to find a husband, but being penniless and disinterested doesn't bode well for her success. Bored by the petty intrigues of court, her frustration and loneliness are eased when the king charges her with the care of his newest acquisition: a wolf he and his hunters have recently captured. What the king doesn't realize is his remarkable pet was once Gabriel, his favorite knight, cursed into wolf form by an unfaithful wife.

The beast’s uncanny intelligence and human-like behavior convince Kathryn that he is more than what he seems. Resolving to help him, she doesn't count on the greatest obstacle being Gabriel himself. The longer he stays in wolf form as a captive of the court, the harder it becomes for him to remember his humanity and to fight his wolfish urges to maim and kill.

Only Kathryn’s affection and determination stand between Gabriel the wolf and Gabriel the man. But when the one who betrayed him returns to court, will Kathryn’s love be enough to keep Gabriel from exacting a brutish revenge that will condemn the wolf to death?

My Review: I really loved the two main characters in this story. The heroine was nice and spunky and the hero was courageous and loving but knew when to get his stuff together and take care of business. I have to say that I really enjoyed all the secondary characters as well. I loved the King and Queen and now I'm wanting to read their story which is alluded to in this tale. This book does get a little dark in places as our heroine does get attacked and almost raped but is saved in time by the hero. However I believe the author needs to go back over the text as several sentences didn't flow right to me and I had to re-read them several times to get the gist of what she was trying to say.

The author did a very good job mixing Beauty and the Beast with werewolves and the medieval era. I'm looking forward to reading Enchanting the King when it is released next month.

Rating: ★★★★☆
