Book Review: A Bite's Tale by Veronica Blade
NOTE: This is a short and sweet young adult romance, about 155 pages
A Cinderella who spends her nights as a wolf. A prince with a taste for blood.
Seventeen year old Cydney struggles against her werewolf nature, trying to keep everyone around her safe. No way will she risk exposing the beast at the prince’s ball, no matter how her two cousins try to persuade her. Even as she attempts to get on with her life, Cydney can’t forget the boy she loved three summers ago — or what she did to him after losing control.
Turned into a vampire to save his life, the prince refuses to live up to his royal duties. He just wants to find the girl he loved and lost...the werewolf girl who bit him. But his father, the king, commands him to attend a ball where he must choose a wife. Can he find his Cinderella before he's forced to marry another? He doesn’t even have her real name, much less a glass slipper.
About the Author: Veronica Blade
Veronica Blade lives in Southern California with her husband and children. By day she runs the family business, but each night she slips away to spin her tales. She writes stories about young adults to relive her own childhood and to live vicariously through her characters. Except her heroes and heroines lead far more interesting lives--and they are always way hotter.
My Review: This is a short story but unlike most short stories...it didn't leave a cliff hanger or me wanting more. The writing style was reminiscent of a young adult author and would easily attract the attention of teens and tweens. I loved the whole twist on the classic fairy tale and how there weren't evil stepsisters but wonderful cousins. What a great story!
I give this a 5 out of 5!
