Some first novels developed as electronic books are horribly edited, but that is not the case here! I didn't catch any grammatical, spelling, or punctuation errors. I heartily recommend this good, clean, witty novel!
His dialogue is fresh and engaging. His writing is so clean and effective that it disappears and allows the reader to experience the story. His characters are believable and delightful. His story is a wild romp of pure imagination and though it touches on very real strains of darker human emotion, overall the tale remains refreshingly lighthearted.
I am very much looking forward to the next installment, and you should be too. Overall it reminded me of a mix of Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
"That was horrible."
"That was a fairy tale," said the wraith. "Fairy tales are horrible."
I'm going to start this review by saying that I just got over all the excited screaming that accompanied finishing this book. The foreshadowing for the next book was beyond epic, and I kind of need it. Now. (But I will tolerate having it soon...)
Back to the quote, this fairy tale retelling was anything but horrible. What would you do if every fairy tale you knew was not only real but also wrong? If all the stories were even better than the ones you've heard? That's this book.
Complete with vivid places, entertaining and well rounded characters, hilarious one liners, insane plot twists, and magic, The Beast of Talesend has it all! It made me laugh and scream and be utterly terrified at moments.
I loved Cordelia. She was this big ball of wonder and confidence. She had a "plan", and she had a heart. She came off as childish in a way complete with maturity. Almost as if she understands the world perfectly well but chooses to accept the world in her own way. Right from the moment when we meet her and there are flying baked goods, I knew I was going to love everything she did and said. I was not disappointed.
Nick... I can't say that I disliked him. I actually really liked him. He's intelligent and a great lead. Seeing this book through his eyes was humorous and interesting. Okay, he was fantastic 99% of the time. Seriously. But during that 1%, I wanted to hit him. He's just...not a very good listener, and that frustrated me at times. (He made me scream "NOOOO" at my kindle twice.) He's a crazy well done character, and characters must have their flaws. This doesn't make him any less funny or any less wonderful to root for. It makes him realistic. And...I think he'd be happy to be referred as that. All things considered.
Loved Crispin even though I didn't get to see as much of him as I would have liked. I'm anticipating more of him in the next book because he also has this great character that makes me want to know more about him. (And the brother relationship he has with Nick is beautiful. They both fit together extremely well.) He's definitely the best little brother ever.
I was half expecting Reginald to appear again. Pity that he didn't. Great character. Loved him.
For anyone wondering if they should give this book a chance, the answer is YES. Go buy it NOW.
