Lycus is a werewolf, he was cursed to live  this life by a witch and for 18 years he was a man by day and a wolf by night, all to protect the girl in the tower called Rapunzel, but all that changed the day that Red, a girl living near the cursed woods and the only one brave enough to hunt in there despite the woods, came along and rescued Rapunzel and vows to help her return to her home in Oz.

This is how the three unlikely allies and friends end up leaving all they have known all or most of their lives and Red leaving her last living relative behind to board a ship heading to Brackengulch, however the journey is not going smoothly when they are hit by a terrible storm and shipwrecked. Fortunately Lycus is able to transform into his wolf and swim to safety with the two girls in his back, but although they are back on land, they’re not safe as they are told that they have landed in the Kingdom of Bruen, the ones who cut off the cursed Blakx forest in order to save themselves.

They are politely questioned by a soldier who knows about the shipwreck and as they try to warm up in a local tavern, it is announced that they have been invited up to the castle as the King and Queen’s guests, this is not wholly welcomed, but it is grudgingly accepted. While they are travelling in the horse drawn covered wagon, they briefly look out of the wagon to see what the Kingdom is like and all they see are wary subjects and threats are given freely to anyone when things are discussed which should not be, but try as they might they get no more answers apart from there is a curfew at sunset because the dark is dangerous. They eventually arrive at the castle and are offered rooms to freshen up in, clean clothes and an invitation to dine with the King and Queen that evening, but Lycus manages to upset the King with a careless question, which is unexpected as it is normally Red who would do something that, especially with her grave dislike of the royalty and kingdom in question. After dinner they return to their rooms where Lycus talk with his serving boy and asks him for more information about why the villagers are scared and what of and although he gets answers, they just being more question, but manages to get some time with Red and Rapunzel so they can discuss these facts in relative secrecy, followed by Lycus slipping out of the castle to see what he can find out on his own, but he runs into more trouble and ends up having to join in a hunt for this “Beast” everyone is scared of, or his sisters as they have been assumed to be, will be imprisoned.

Will Lycus be able to play his part in the hunt and ensure that Red and Rapunzel are allowed to remain free, or will he find that his inner beast finds a kindred spirit when he is captured by the beast and will this make his choice between his friends and a princess be his downfall? This is another fantastic retelling of an untold story which keeps you just as interested in finding out the differences between them.

Wolf’s Beautiful Beast (The Untold Stories series, book 3) by Suzanna Lynn was another great read! I swear, each book in this series gets better and better, and more interesting. This was another tale full of action, and adventure and even some suspense at the beginning. Red is one of the best characters in my opinion, and one of my favorites, but reading this story from Lycus’s point of view was interesting and great! I can’t wait to read the next installment and see what happens next!

Wolf’s Beautiful Beast (The Untold Stories #3) by Suzanna Lynn

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by Lynn and it just keeps getting better and better. Lynn knows how to draw in readers and keep them there.

Lycus is also known as the big bad wolf. Except he’s not bad. He’s just misunderstood and just a boy. He’s not evil and so far he has saved many lives. Including Red’s. The quote I chose for Lycus is: “Thank you for your care and hospitality.”

Arabella is the princess they’ve locked away because she is cursed. She is a girl trapped in a dragon’s body. When Lycus promises to help her she insists that he does. The quote I chose for Arabella is: “No! It’s not supposed to happen this way. Why did you get in the way?”

Highly recommended for YA Fantasy lovers.

I really enjoyed the other two books in this series and could not wait to read this one! Wolf’s Beautiful Beast is book 3 in The Untold Series, I highly suggest you read book one and two before starting this one, you will not be disappointed at all. The whole series is very exciting and a twist to the original fairy tale characters we all know and love. Such a clever story, the settings are detailed and the characters, well they are perfect. I couldn’t wait to dive into the story and read the many adventures. Once I started I had to read until the very end. Such an amazing, fun read from the very beginning. If you like Disney and fairy tales, you will love it too!

This is the 3rd  book in The Untold Stories series and I loved it. The characters are amazingly written and I love seeing my favourite story characters in a completely different way. The stories are retold and engaging but they never lose the magic that makes them classics.

In this book we are back with Red, Rapunzel and Lycus continuing the adventure to get to Oz and defeat the wicked witch.

This time the story revolves around Lycus and his life as a wolf. The beautiful twist to it is the story of Beauty and the Beast that is woven into this book. However it isn’t the story as we know it and it is a beautiful recreation that fits perfectly into this book.

When Red, Rapunzel and Lycus end up shipwrecked and taken in by the King and Queen things take a turn for the worst when the village think Lycus is the beast that had been terrifying their village. Looking to prove them wrong he sets out to find the beast and rescue the King and Queens daughter. What is doesn’t realise is things aren’t that simple and that there are focuses working against him that you don’t even think would happen.

Brilliant! Utterly brilliant! I truly love how the author has put a fresh spin on classic fairy tales and combined them into something completely new yet remaining true to its counterparts. This whole serious has captured my heart and been such a wonderful escape. You can read them as stand alone novels but they do build off one another in a way that they are best appreciated in series order. I can’t help but hope that the author will be bringing us more fairy tale goodness. So good!

After reading the first two books in this series I couldn’t wait to get my “fangs” into this one. WOW! Just wow! That’s all I can say honestly. I truly love how the author uses so many of our favorite childhood fairy-tale characters to interweave this series. It’s truly amazing! As with the previous two book installments I was immediately pulled in and felt like I was “a part of their world”. There are some new characters introduced in this book that honestly made the story even better. And that’s one of the things that I love the most about these stories is how all these characters interact with each other in their realms. I cannot stress enough how in love with these books I am. Nor can I tell you to read them enough. But seriously, go read this series. You will not be disappointed at all.

Wolf’s Beautiful Beast
By
Suzanna Lynn

This is book 3 and as in the last 2 books, author Suzanna Lynn does not disappoint, this book ties in the Beauty and the Beast story, mixing it with other fairy tale characters. I have said this before and I will say it again, she does a wonderful job at this. It gives a unique feel to this story, holds your attention all the way through. I recommend this book as well as the other 2 in the series.

Wolf’s Beautiful Beast is the third instalment in The Untold Stories series by Suzanna Lynn. Having read the first two books, and loving them, I really couldn’t wait to dive into this story and continue the adventure/s.
As with the previous two books, this is such a sublime young adult fantasy, and again, it is a mash-up of several classic fairytales, giving us quite a different version and perspective of the stories we all thought we knew so well.
With Red, Rapunzel, and Lycus headed to the Land of Oz to confront the wicked witch- things don’t quite go according to plan- making for a wonderfully fresh and exciting read.
Again, I love all the intricate, clever, and interconnected details that really bring the story, and series, to life.
I can’t wait for the next book to see where we go from here.
Happy Reading!

Thank you, Suzanna Lynn!

Suzanna lynn has done it again; just when i think I know my fairy tales, BLAM right is the imagination. This is the third Book in Suzanna Lynn’s Untold Stories. PHENOMENAL. This book is written from the big bad lycus point of view. Action pack and danger filled with some unexpected romance to keep those pages turning. This crazy ride into the fairy tale you won’t want to miss. I can’t wait for the next one!
