The main character, Bella, is extremely relatable and self-aware. It pisses me off that Lackey had someone like Eric, who was actually interesting, and chose instead to go with the bitch and the nonentity because they were somehow more Good.

Beauty and the Werewolf (2011)

The title and format still appear in the same format, embossed and against a square block, with the same swirly design stamped on. I had expected a narrative a bit less blindly following and simplistic. I think if I hadn’t read the first few books of Mercedes Lackey’s Five Hundred Kingdom series, I would have enjoyed this book a lot more. Is the villain pr This might not be the best of the Kingdoms series, but still I found it enjoyable enough to finish in two days.

I especially enjoyed seeing how a beauty and the beast retelling could go a path in annd the beast wasn’t hunted by the regular folks.
