Beastly by Alex Flinn Review

Kendra Chronicles Book One
By Alex Flinn

Kyle Kingsbury rich, popular, and he thinks he is God’s gift to everyone. One day he asks an over-weight ugly girl to the prom, only because he already had a date and just wanted to humiliate the girl for fun. When it turns out that the girl is actually a smoking hot witch he soon figures out that he may have made a mistake. Now Kyle Kingsbury no longer exists he is a beast with fangs and claws that can walk upright and speak like a man. The only thing that can save him is true love.

This is an interesting re-telling of beauty and the beast, set in New York City with a modern spoiled rich kid as the “Prince” character, but not only this I love the incorporation of the beast chatting with other cursed characters in a forum it was fun to hear from a mermaid, a cursed frog prince, and of course the beast himself all while Mr. Anderson is trying to help them cope with their curses. The tale is a classic but the way the author brings it to life is altogether original and flawless.  The romance is beautiful; the author did a wonderful job with this book I look forward to the next book in this series.
