This book was a good read. I really enjoyed the concept of the "beast" being a dragon. And I also liked the fact that he wasn't just some awful tyrant throughout most of the story. Of course, that does take away a bit of that whole "appearance reflects what's on the inside" idea, but, like I said, I enjoyed it nonetheless.
The writing was good--polished enough. There were no glaring, repetitive grammatical errors. (I just hate those...SO much.)
The book isn't exactly fast-paced, so if you are looking for a high amount of action or a high amount of whirlwind romance emotions, then maybe this book isn't right for you. It moves at a slow pace, carefully building the delicate relationship between the two main characters.
And that's fine. The pace is believable, and it made for a relaxing, poetic read...until closer to the end, and that is why I cannot give this book 4 or 5 stars. It WAS a good read, and I would encourage you to read it if you like fairy tales.
However, the ending...the pacing just fell apart there. No spoilers here, but, as mentioned before, throughout the book, the pace is slow, even, flowing. And then, suddenly, at the end, well...it's just over. There was a slow buildup to this ending that could have been beautiful and moving, and yet, I was left with the feeling that it was incomplete. The pace abruptly quickened, and it almost seemed as if the author simply decided it was time to end the book. If the book is going to be slow about everything throughout it...developing the relationships, revealing bits and pieces about the curse, then I feel that the ending shouldn't be so abrupt. The readers have been waiting for the BIG moments to happen, and then, it's time for them to happen, the reader takes a breath, blinks, and...it's over.The end.
For that reason, I'm giving this book 3.5 stars (The review will be 3 stars, officially, but just know that it's 3.5). It was good. I liked it. I wouldn't even be opposed to reading it again. But the ending left me disappointed.
