Summary

The eldest daughter is often doomed in fairy tales. But Bella - Isabella Beauchamps, daughter of a wealthy merchant - vows to escape the usual pitfalls.
Anxious to avoid the “traditional” path, Bella dons a red cloak and ventures into the forbidden forest to consult with "Granny," the local wisewoman.
But on the way home she's attacked by a wolf - who turns out to be a cursed nobleman! Secluded in his castle, Bella is torn between her family and this strange man who creates marvelous inventions and makes her laugh - when he isn't howling at the moon.
Breaking spells is never easy. But a determined beauty, a wizard (after all, he's only an occasional werewolf) and a little godmotherly interference might just be able to bring about a happy ending.

Great book

At first it took me a little while go get in to the book but when I dad I couldn't stop listening.

I have now Beauty and the Werewolf a few times and I keep finding new things I missed.

A good read for lovers of fantasy . . . .

Book 1, 5 and 6 are the best of this series to date.

The villain is pretty easy to pick out from the get go but aside from that the story still holds the readers interest with good character and world building.

If you were expecting to read a copy of Red Riding Hood you have the wrong book. The story does however doe include a female lead, Isabella who wears a red cloak, a "Granny", a wise old woman, who she visits who lives in the woods out side town, a game keeper and well a were wolf and even a step mother and step sisters thrown into the mix along with sorcerers, invisible servants, curses, spells and well i guess you need to read it to find out how all this comes together and of course the romance and life threatening encounters . . .

It's a good read and well worth adding to your library

Mercedes Lackey dropped the ball a bit after the first book but picked it up again with books 5 and 6

although each story is separate in its own right characters do appear from previous books but in the main aside from the godmother Elena and her household non of the previous books main chracters are a common thread though out this series.

Unlike the Tradition . . .

I would recommend this book and series bearing in mind the above comments on some of the books in the series which don't match up to the quality of books 1, 5 and 6 but are still readable.

Comments made above are obviously a reflection of my current taste and opinions.

Book 6 and maybe the best in series

This is the 6th book in the series and I think perhaps my favorite one. The story didn't start slowly like many of the others have and while it was apparent the whole time the answer to the difficulty in the story etc, it was still a fun read. Excellent brain candy and a wonderful narrator.
