No one should ever go into the woods alone.

Brielle has grown up listening to tales of a beast that attacks humans, leaving behind only a scattering of bones and limbs. It’s probably the elders’ way of keeping little children in line, but it doesn’t explain her grisly premonitions of blood, claws, and severed heads.

But when Brielle finds a mangled body in the woods, she begins to wonder if the grim stories may actually be true. Soon, Lord Kenrick, Knight of the Crowhurst Order, arrives asking questions about the legendary monster. Brielle’s attraction to him is immediate and undeniable. She volunteers to help him search for clues to the creature’s existence, despite her suspicions about his timing.

As her seventeenth birthday approaches, Brielle’s nightmares worsen and more villagers go missing. If Brielle doesn’t figure out the connection between Kenrick, the beast, and her visions, more people will die. As Brielle falls deeper in love with Kenrick and deeper into the snares of the abominable beast, she’ll become part of a legend so great, no one will ever question its validity again.

So I was not sure what to expect when I started reading this, but I was really drawn to this book after I read the description. I have to admit it was a little slow for me at the start, but I wanted to see how it ended so I pushed through, and I’m glad I did.

This is the story of Brielle, a 16 year old healer who lives with her grandmother on the outskirts of town in the woods everyone says are dangerous. The woods they say a gruesome beast resides in. The author does an amazing job of creating a world of magic and mystery throughout the story. Brille has a hard time fitting in with the other people in town because she has to hide the fact that she has any magic in her.  This is a cute and different way to retell Little Red Riding Hood, but with much bigger twists and turns.

I liked the way that the author used each characters “job” as their last name, it let you know what profession they held or what profession their parents did. I liked the relationship’s Brille had with both Rhyne and Raul. It was interesting to see how she interacted with them both. Her interaction with Lord Kenrick was interesting from the start. She felt drawn to him from their first meeting and even agrees to aid him in his research of the beast. I even like the fact that up until the beast was unmasked I had no idea who it was. I had some guesses, but not real clue as to who was actually the beast.

 

I have to say that all in all this was a good read. The ending was not something I saw coming, but was happy with it non the less. It tied the story up nicely with explanations for everything that happened. Like all good fairy tales it had it’s happy ending.
